Amazon.com has pulled a bizarre “ex-girlfriend” mannequin from its website. The mannequin, which bleeds when shot with a bullet, is manufactured by Zombie Industries.

Zombie Industries also created a President Obama mannequin that was on sale at the NRA convention in Houston last weekend, reported MSNBC.com. The company also sells 15 other types of mannequins.
