Shooting Range Ultimate Airsoft Range in Wallasey, has come under fire for using a picture of an ISIS bride eager to return to the UK as a target.
The young woman, Samina Begum, was interviewed on the BBC earlier this week and customer of the shooting range said she showed little empathy for her home country.
A spokesman for the shooting range said that “after watching the interview with Ms Begum being interviewed, there was a lack of empathy that she had shown and we decided to listen to our customers and use her as a target.”
“The targets provide some fantastic reactions and conversations and allow people to have some lighthearted fun and bring out the inner child in us all.”
“The targets don’t always reflect personal opinions and we don’t want to condone terrorism.
Defending itself against criticism, the range claims it has in the past already used images of other high-profile figures as targets, including Donald Trump, Margaret Thatcher, Osama bin Laden and Justin Bieber.
