US clown blasted for sporting Obama mask during act.

Washington, August 12 ( ANI ): A clown attracted a lot of criticism at a Missouri State Fair rodeo for sporting a US President Barack Obama mask.

The announcer had also asked the eager audience if they wanted to see "Obama run down by a bull".

The performer's antics provoked Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, US's second highest-ranking official, to condemn the act on Twitter, saying that it was 'disrespectful' to the president, ABC News reported.

State Fair officials said that the show in Sedalia was 'inappropriate' and did not reflect the opinions or standards of the fair.

The officials added in a statement that their staff strives to be a family friendly event and regret that rodeo badly missed that mark. ( ANI )
