Former president of United States, Donald Trump’s wax statue in Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in San Antonio, Texas, had been vandalised by his haters due to which the administration removed it.
A replica of the former president currently being housed at Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in San Antonio, Texas, had to be removed from viewing for its own safety, according to San Antonio Express.
The museum’s branch which is operated by the Ripley Entertainment Corp – owned by the great-grandson of Marie Tussaud – hosted the statue for four years. Since the place is a popular tourist destination, Trump’s statue recently became a punching bag for visitors who vandalized it, repeatedly. Following this, the management was forced to take it off the floor.
Clay Stewart, the regional manager of the museum said,
“When it’s a highly political figure, attacks can be a problem.”
At first relocated to the front lobby so it looked after with more vigilance. But when that didn’t deter visitors from “punching” and “scratching” it, the organizers had to remove it altogether. Now Trump’s wax replica is safe in storage with George Washington’s wax recreation.
It is the second time that Trump’s replica has faced the public’s frustration. In October 2020, Madame Tussauds museum in Berlin tossed Trump in the trash, quite literally, as part of an exhibit change meant to denounce his administration’s policies.
Madame Tussauds in London followed suit, dressing up Trump in golf attire after his loss in the presidential election to “reflect his potential 2021 wardrobe.”
