Vendor That Pulled ‘Obama’ Target At NRA Convention Also Sells ‘The Ex’ Target

In addition to making a mannequin target that looks like President Barack Obama, Zombie Industries sells a mannequin called simply “The Ex” — a large-breasted dummy that “bleeds” when shot.  

At the National Rifle Association convention in Houston over the weekend, Zombie Industries, the maker of “life-sized tactical mannequin” targets, was asked to take down its “Bleeding Rocky Zombie” from its booth. A company worker told Buzzfeed the mannequin was pulled for looking too much like Obama.  

Other mannequins made by Zombie Industries include a clown, a terrorist, and a Nazi. The only female target appears to be “The Ex,” which sells for $99.95. 

“In addition to the Ex Girlfriend Zombie, we currently sell 15 male zombies, 5 animal zombies & 2 aliens… to discriminate against Women by not having them represented in our product selection would be just plain sexist,” the company states on its website.
