A Selfie Statue Has Divided This Texas Town

1 minute read

In what might be the most quintessentially millennial controversy of the year, a Texas town is divided over a statue that depicts two girls taking a selfie.

A bronze selfie statue in front of Sugar Land, Texas’ city hall is drawing mixed reactions from the town’s residents and visitors.

The bronze statue was donated by Sugar Land resident Sandy Levin as a part of a 10-piece collection. The Sugar Land Parks and Recreation Advisory Board says that the statues are supposed to signify “activities that occur in the Square;” another statue features a man playing a guitar.

Some people felt salty about the statue representing the town.

While others saw the humor and relevancy of the art and even took their own selfies in a meta move.
