The ghosts were racist and had to be removed.
The St. Louis Zoo will remove the black-faced ghosts hanging from trees after complaints that they were racist ghosts.
A photo shot by the St. Louis Zoo to show off their “Boo At The Zoo” Halloween decorations caused a stir among some FOX 2 viewers. The photo was shared on our Facebook page by a viewer who felt the black heads on the ghost bodies hanging from trees evoked the days of slavery in the United States.
We contacted the Zoo and have learned they will be taking the ghosts down and never intended the decorations to be offensive to anyone.
The ghosts reminded locals of the old terrorist wing of the Democratic party.
