Black Sabbath Removes Video Backdrop Due To Complaints

According to Black Sabbath's official website, the video backdrop that the band are using on the current Ozzfest dates that compares President Bush to Adolf Hitler has been yanked due to "complaints."
Webmaster Joe Siegler also added: "From concert reports I've read, and an email I got from someone associated with the tour who wants to remain anonymous (I have no idea who it is, they're using a free mail account), it would appear that the Bush/Hitler image from the War Pigs video has been removed. The other day, Bill Ward came out on his website saying he wanted to distance himself from it, and there were a couple of reviews that mentioned said video. Today I noticed that there was a USA Today article that says '...was removed after complaints.' While I've not heard anything official from Sabbath's camp about this, I'll go with what was said here and say it was removed due to complaints."
