You Won't Be Able To Unsee These ‘Naked Trump’ Statues

Someone put up statues of Donald Trump, wearing nothing but an ugly frown on his face, across major cities in the country.

A lot of people have adopted alternative means of protesting Donald Trump’s hateful rhetoric instead of just standing outside his campaign venues with a sign.

For instance, in response to his “Mexicans are rapists” comments, Mexico took a swing at the Republican presidential nominee with special Trump piñatas. In July, someone placed a tiny border wall around Donald Trump's Hollywood Walk of Fame Star.

But this time around, a Las Vegas artist, who goes by the name Ginger, went a step further and erected statues of Trump, wearing nothing but an ugly frown on his face, across major cities in the country.

Yes, it’s as bad as it sounds.

It’s a project called “The Emperor Has No B—s” an obvious reference to the famous fairy tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes" put on by a group called INDECLINE, according to The Washington Post. 

“When the guys approached me, it was all because of my monster-making abilities,” Ginger told the Post of INDECLINE’s request to design the statues. “Trump is just yet another monster, so it was absolutely in my wheelhouse to be able to create these monstrosities.”

The statues were put up in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Cleveland and Seattle. People seemed more than happy to take selfies with the unusual piece of artwork:

Not to be outdone by a prank on its grounds, the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation had the best tongue-in-cheek response to the illicit naked statues standing in all their, ahem, glory. 

"NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small," the saucy statement read.




But some places have started to take them down:

Trump's famous statue that has been the talk of the town lately, has now been removed from San Francisco's Castro District, SF Gate reported.

Nick Bovis, the owner of Lefty O'Doul's, wants to adopt the statue at his restaurant's location on Geary Street, but there has been no official word of a possible relocation of the hilarious statue. 

The statue has also been removed from New York's Union Square which caused a frenzy for selfie-crazed people who visited the work of art.
