LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Organizers at a Kentucky carnival have
shut down a booth in which a Casey Anthony lookalike taunted
fairgoers to dunk her.

The Bluegrass Fair is sponsored by the Lexington Lions Club and
the dunking booth had been promoted on social media. The Lexington
Herald-Leader reports the Lions Club cited "growing public
sentiment" in deciding to close the game Tuesday.

Some viewers of Anthony's televised murder trial were outraged
after the Florida woman was acquitted this month of killing her
2-year-old daughter.

Fair Chairman Ron Mossotti said an event management company
presented the idea of the dunking booth in which the lookalike sat
on a platform labeled "innocent" and fairgoers aimed for a target
labeled "guilty."

Mossotti said most people laughed though some found it tasteless
and tacky.
