Locals from Lucille Ball’s hometown are not happy with a public statue that was erected to honor the actress’ legacy, complaining that it’s “frightening” and looks nothing like her, and are now looking into fundraising options to fix it.
The Celoron, NY, residents have been clamoring to refurbish the statue on a Facebook group called “We Love Lucy! Get Rid of this Statue.” One user suggested starting a GoFundMe page to raise money to replace it; another suggested a Kickstarter.
Addendum: Just for fun…
