poster featuring a cartoon scene of a woman who appears to have been raped has been plastered across Las Vegas to promote an upcoming Guns N' Roses stop in Nevada.
Activists and local public officials are outraged by the horrific illustration, which appeared on advertisements for the group's upcoming four-week run at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
The outcry over the rock group's offensive ad comes shortly after the city decided to honor Guns N' Roses by temporarily naming a street for their iconic 1987 song Paradise City Road.
'It's clearly inappropriate. Maybe it's the risk of doing business with a rock band, but I guess we'll have some remorse over this decision. It's a lesson learned,' Scow added.
The graphic used for the ads was actually a toned down version of the cover for their 'Appetite for Destruction' album, which showed an unconscious woman with an exposed breast and her underwear pulled down.
A menacing robot stands over her appearing to be ready to attack.
