LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Arkansas Times) – Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway), in response to a poster for a metal band concert featuring a photoshopped Rapert biting a baby, has called for a boycott of Vino’s, the longtime punk rock/metal sanctum hosting the show.
Rapert’s base has declared disdain for the poster and for Eyehategod, the New Orleans sludge metal band headlining the show.
Other commenters on Rapert’s Facebook post decrying the show poster responded differently:
It’s not the first time the politician has been a topic of conversation at the beloved brewery/pizzeria; even expat comedian Matt Besser returned home to Arkansas last fall to lend some celebrity aid to the Faulkner County Democratic Party ahead of last November’s election.
