A statue of Elon Musk inaugurated in New York
New Yorkers must have been left speechless when one last Monday statue of Elon Musk in bronze was inaugurated in Lower Manhattan. We certainly cannot say the same of Twitter users, who instead used every possible word to demonstrate their disdain for the work. “Thanks, it is becoming difficult to find public toilets”. So commented a user, making irony on the statue of the entrepreneur.
Still, the work was created by the investment site public.com to celebrate Musk’s talent. “Love him or hate him, Elon Musk turns 50 today. And since Elon’s ambition (and perhaps ego) is by no means miniature, we have placed a life-size statue on 14th St. and the stairs of the High Line in New York. ” So reads the official public.com Twitter account. The only one who seems to have appreciated the work.
Love or hate him, @elonmusk turns 50 today.

The statue of Elon Musk targeted on social media
To celebrate the talent of Elon Musk, the public.com site has chosen to inaugurate a bronze statue, which reproduces him in life-size, in the heart of New York. A gesture that does not seem to have been appreciated by users, who immediately showed their own disapproval on social networks. “Horrible statue that looks nothing like him and shouldn’t exist”, someone says. “Thanks for posting the location! I will soon disfigure her, ”announces someone else.
On the other hand, it is not surprising that people have been unleashed against the entrepreneur, after having already been targeted in the past for spreading false and biased news about Covid-19, as well as for being the perfect incarnation. capitalist excess. Precisely for this reason, as soon as possible the users were unleashed against him. These days, in fact, Twitter is teeming with tweets that compare the statue of Elon Musk to one of the public toilets in the city. Many others, however, argue that there is no similarity between the work and the entrepreneur.
“The best thing I can say about this waste of bronze is that it doesn’t look anything like Elon Musk”, comments one of the users. And actually, it’s hard to blame him. The statue depicts a man in a T-shirt, holding his hands on his head and looking up, whose face really shows little resemblance to the entrepreneur. Still, public.com said she was very proud of this job. Although we cannot say the same for users, who have stated that the statue of Elon Musk “will be in pieces before the end of the week”.
