    Meh, I mean I "get it" how it's trying to pass itself off as art. But at the end of the day, they're just trying to MAKE MONEY, and they're doing it at the expense (exploitation) of that beheading image. Since it's not an exhibit in a museum or street art, and is instead a tacky Facebook photo shoot to MAKE MONEY, I categorically reject this as tasteless, trashy and crass.

    I wouldn't attend nor would I care to associate with persons who would attend such an event. And this is coming from a guy who likes to drink and dance in clubs a lot. But I can't with this...

    That is just disgusting and in very poor taste. Is there nothing off limits these days? Jesus, these victims were human beings with families that are going through extreme grief right now. Have some respect!!

    I didn't like this at all. As much as I like that people are making fun of ISIS, as they should, I felt that this image was more disrespectful towards the victims than it was to ISIS.

    Concerning the party promoters using the death of an innocent man to MAKE MONEY at some trashy gay club,, and then trying to pass it off as "satire" or "art":

    yeah there's no good reason for this. only a few people will think it's awesome and those are the last bitches you should want at your party.
