Texas museum forced to take down Trump statue because everyone keeps punching it


A wax museum in Texas has removed its statue of former US president Donald Trump from display after it was repeatedly punched by visitors.

Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in San Antonio, Texas, had to move the statue to a storage room because some museum visitors kept attacking it.

They punched and scratched the figure, inflicting so much damage that it had to be pulled from public view, Clay Stewart, regional manager for Ripley Entertainment, which owns the museum, told San Antonio Express-News.

“When it’s a highly political figure, attacks can be a problem.”

Ahead of the US presidential election last year, Madame Tussauds in Berlin put its wax statue of Mr Trump in a dumpster. It was reportedly intended to reflect its expectations for the November polls.

“We here at Madame Tussauds Berlin removed Donald Trump’s waxwork as a preparatory measure,” museum’s marketing manager Orkide Yalcindag said at the time.
