The photo at right is from the intended Kings Island (Cinncinati, Ohio) Halloween Haunt display for 2009.
This skeleton represents Farah Fawcett, who was but one of many "guests" to the now defunct (after much public outcry) display which also included the "likeness" of Billy Mays, Dave Thomas, Michael Jackson, and Steve McNair and his mistress/murderer Saleh Kazemi. (Photo below)
After pushing the boundaries and creating a massive public outcry, Kings Island has yanked their "celebrity line-up" from their Halloween display with a statement by spokesperson Don Helbig that they never intended "to be distasteful."
Are you kidding me??
In my opinion, a blind monkey could see that the displays were not only distasteful but out right rude, crude, and offensive to families - especially those celebrities with young children.
Do you think this display was tacky? and why or why not?
