"It was a Halloween decoration that I guess went too far," Quality Coatings owner Dave Huff told the newspaper Sunday.

He said that he has since changed the scarecrow to remove the depiction of Obama and added yellow tape that reads, "PC-POLICE."

He also told the newspaper that he is not racist and that "no race ever went into this thing."

The Detroit Free Press reported that people online said the rope looked like a noose, but Huff said it was supposed to represent a spine and a move from the video game "Mortal Kombat."

The display began to gain attention after Facebook user Kathy DeTroyer posted a picture of it last week. 

"How is this ok? I am disgusted this is in my hometown. Way to display your ignorance," she wrote. "Democrat or Republican this is just wrong. At least I know who not to do business with."
