The organisers later attached their apology above the notice, writing: 'Dear concerned locals and residents, We would like to clarify that no babies (or dolls) were harmed in the making of this window display'

Frightmare published a video on TikTok and Facebook displaying the notices, along with the following text: “Public retraction.

The video has gained more than 38,000 views and comments from viewers who were shocked by the complaint

Window displays are no longer allowed in Georgia.

We’ve sent her to the mirror room so she can take a long, critical look in the mirror.

The complaint has generated more than 38,000 views and comments from people who are horrified.

One person requested that adult-sized mannequin body pieces be placed instead, perhaps with a sign that reads “here lie concerned local residents and parents.”

Another wrote: “Absurd! We reside there and like Frightmare!”

A third added, “Raise Georgia’s salary!”

While another person remarked, “I enjoyed such things as a child and turned out normal!”

Speaking to MailOnline, Miss Wilson said: 'It was actually the other one I was more worried about. It was a hellscape and I put a cross with nails in it so I was like "I wonder if that will be touchy?"

She said: 'We had some left over dolls and I thought to chop off arms and legs and put it at the bottom so it would cover the bottom bit'

The video has received over 38,000 views and comments from surprised viewers.

Miss Wilson told MailOnline, “I was quite excited because it was my first time doing the window.” I was responsible for two of the four.

‘I was honestly more concerned about the other one. It was a hellscape with a cross including nails, so I wondered, “Will that be offensive?”

I thought it would be fascinating to give it a rustic appearance after discovering some pretty cool biology books and rusty tools. We had some unused dolls, so I decided to remove the limbs and legs and place them in the bottom to conceal the remainder.

“I had no intention of offending anyone. Once we received the letter, I did not want to apologize because I felt it was stated fairly harshly.

It was never my aim to murder infants, and dead dolls made us laugh because they were never alive to begin with.

Miss Wilson told MailOnline, ‘I was genuinely more concerned about the other candidate. It was a hellscape with a cross including nails, so I wondered, “Will that be offensive?”

She stated, “We had leftover dolls, so I decided to cut off the limbs and legs and place them at the bottom to cover the bottom portion.”

We used to have the festival on a farm, but we’ve recently moved into the city center and don’t want to irritate the residents. As we had a window filled with coffins, I assumed that this would be worse.

“We just put away the doll pieces, and they placed a thank-you letter on our note. They returned and erased their note, so I deleted ours.

I believe you are aware that, as a Halloween festival, there was bound to be some opposition to anything.

Other window displays at the event include a hell throne constructed of plastic skulls, a coffin with nails pounded into a cross, and biohazard waste bins that are overflowing.
