A fight broke out outside the Bowling Green station in downtown Manhattan on Tuesday morning following the erection of a naked statue of Hillary Clinton.
The statue depicted the Democratic candidate wearing an open blouse, with hoofed feet and a Wallstreet banker poking his head around her side.
The statue was set up at 6am and was up for less than three hours before an enraged woman from the nearby National Museum of the American Indian pushed it over while yelling at statue’s creator.
The woman, who identified herself as Nancy to nydailynews had this to say:
“This is obscene! […] To put something up like this in front of my work place […] I shouldn’t have to see this”
The woman, Nancy, can be seen in the video below:
Video shows the struggle between the artist and the musem worker as he tried to pick up the toppled statue. At one point Nancy even sits on the statue.
The artist who set up the statue has been identified as 27-year-old Anthony Scioli but the statue itself is credited “Mini Master and Boogie Night Production.”
Officers with the counterterrorism unit arrived to the scene at around 8:30 am, and although no one was arrested or received a summons, Scioli was ordered to dismantle and remove the statue. The reason appears to be because the young artist failed to get a permit for the demonstration.
