Stumpys Stickers & Stuff, the website accused of originally designing the offensive, racist bumper art aimed at U.S. President Barack Obama is now down. The art work went viral on both Facebook and Twitter and now some Twitter users, who thought the sticker was a fake, are happy that the site is not functioning.
The bumper sticker, which reads Don't Re-Nig In 2012, is considered to have anti-Obama language. Those words were written in large white type and accompanied by smaller texts that read Stop repeat offenders. Don't re-elect Obama!
The Huffington Post reported that the stickers can be purchased at the website Stumpy's Stickers, which was no longer up and running on Saturday morning. However, a Twitter user noted that the order form section of Stumpys Stickers is still alive.
The Post also reported that Stumpys Stickers' site also had variations of the Obama art work. One of those art work included the Don't Re-Nig design with a caricature of a black man's face with a missing tooth and another with a picture of a chimp that reads Obama 2012. There was also one with a drawing of several Ku Klux Klan members that reads The Original Boys In The Hood, according to the Huffington Post.
Some Twitter users didn't like that the website was selling offensive stickers of the president and tweeted that they are happy the website is now down.
Some didn't believe the bumper art was real.
I honestly thought it was fake at first. But they are real, and were sold by Stumpy's Stickers, wrote Robert Schumacher.
