This morning, an artist created a somewhat gross statue of a naked Hillary Clinton (with hoofed feet, because she’s a literal demon) and a Wall Street banker resting on her breast. The artist left it on the street during rush hour Tuesday morning, and within hours it had been bashed and beaten by Hillary supporters. The Daily News reports that almost immediately the statue started to cause an issue between people trying to break down the statue and people trying to keep it “erect.”
One woman, in particular, an employee in the area, took such offense that she started destroying it.
An artist erected an obscene statue of Hillary Clinton in downtown Manhattan Tuesday morning causing a heated fight between defenders of the profane piece of protest art and women trying to tear it down… The statue was up for less than three hours before an enraged woman toppled it over and started yelling at the statue’s creator [source].
There’s even at least one video of the argument. You can see it below.
I believe that the young man trying to raise the statue back up is actually the artist who probably spent a ton of time on the project. Then you have the woman in the hijab saying, “Just let it go.” OK. Yeah. Just let it go.
To me, the hypocrisy in this city is actually really surprising, although shame on me for thinking anything in this election could go over smoothly. It wasn’t even a couple of months ago that people were taking hundreds of photos of the Donald Trump statue with a micropenis. That thing lasted for at least a full day. But here, this woman can’t even let it go past 8:00 A.M. before they start breaking it. Honestly, I would bet my life that this woman hasn’t lived in NYC for more than five years. If she had, she’d have way more problems to worry about than some stupid gross statue that doesn’t even look like Hillary Clinton.
Additionally, the New York Post reports that the woman was offended by the statue because she had to look at it all day. Question, ma’am: are you a panhandler? Where do you work that you have to look at a statue all day?
