WATCH LIVE: TRUMP HOLDS RALLY IN SOUTH CAROLINA

NSFW: Naked Statues of Donald Trump Appeared in Five Major Cities Today

So. This happened today.

There have been at least five major cities that woke up Thursday to an interesting surprise: a life-sized, comically exaggerated, and COMPLETELY NAKED statue of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The statues were publicly, ahem, erected in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cleveland and Seattle, and they triggered an absolute frenzy of photographs, mockery, and general online bemusement.

WARNING: NOT SAFE FOR WORK

If you haven’t clawed out your eyes and can still read this, I’ll bet you’re wondering who or what is responsible for this. Well, according to Washington Post, the statues were commissioned by the anarchist street art collective known as Indecline.

Indecline has called the political art project “The Emperor Has No Balls.” Indeed, among the exaggerated features of the statues, the depictions of Trump don’t have any testicles.

All of the statues were signed by “Ginger” a Las Vegas sculptor who made them on the collective’s behalf. Ginger specializes in creating monsters for horror films and haunted houses, and in the months it took him to make the statues, he felt that Trump fit right in among his other creations.

“Trump is just yet another monster, so it was absolutely in my wheelhouse to be able to create these monstrosities,” Ginger said. He told WaPo that he felt an increasing resentment against his statues as Trump’s controversial politics continued to anger him.

UPDATE — 5:15p.m. ET: The New York City Parks Department has responded with a perfect official statement: 

NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.
