Man Displays Statue Of Obama Eating Watermelon In His From Yard
The election might be over, but apparently that hasn’t stopped the blatantly racist acts of disrespect aimed at the President from carrying on.
In the latest act of random ridiculousness, a white amateur comedian has posted a sculpture of President Obama eating watermelon in his front yard for all to see.
Kentucky resident Danny Hafley is calling his front-yard sculpture of a watermelon-eating President Barack Obama his “buddy” who “don’t talk… [or] make no smart comments.” Hafley, a white amateur comedian, told local TV news station Lex 18 that his display is meant as a joke and not a racist display.
He says everyone who sees it loves it: “If I had a dollar for everyone who stopped and took a picture of it I’d be a millionaire.”
Some of his neighbors find the display in bad taste. “If he wants to place it someplace else that would be fine,” said one anonymous neighbor interviewed by Lex 18. “We don’t have black people in this community but I’m sure they travel this road like everybody else does. They could be offended. I don’t agree with it.”
Hafley said he would display the sculpture until the spring or until he gets in trouble
Sounds like this guy thought he could put this statue up and not get caught since he lives in a community where they “don’t have black people.”
Do you find this display offensive? Or is it all in good fun as the owner suggests?
