A 'selfie statue' has been erected in Sigar Land, Texas and locals are infuriated.
The bronze statue was donated by local artist Sandy Levin as one part of a 10-piece sculpture collection.
It's unclear whether the status is meant to be serious, cynical or satirical however residents are struggling to see any good in it!
