A vendor at the Bloomsburg Fair in Pennsylvania advertised his wares by displaying a large Nazi flag next to a Donald Trump banner, according to The Citizens’ Voice, a local Pennsylvania paper.
The flag was taken down Monday after it was initially spotted and a fairgoer posted a picture of it on social media Sunday night.
“Security and the directors and other people did take care of it,” concessions clerk Barbara Belles told The Citizens’ Voice. Belles also said the vendor was apparently displaying the flag for political purposes.
Additional Nazi flags were confiscated from the vendor Monday morning, according to ABC affiliate WNEP.

By Monday afternoon, the vendor had been kicked off the fairgrounds, after it was discovered he was a registered sex offender, according to the WNEP report.
Photos of homophobic and sexist bumper stickers from the vendor’s stall also surfaced on Twitter Monday:
