Around 7:00 am Tuesday morning, a woman became irate after spotting a a nearly naked Hillary Clinton statue that was put up in lower Manhattan.
The statue was put up around 6:00 am near the Bowling Green subway station, causing a stir amongst the early morning commuters.
After spotting the statue, which depicts a nearly naked Hillary Clinton with hoofed feet and a Wall Street banker laying his head on her chest, a woman knocked the statue down and began breaking off several pieces of it.
The artist, identified as as 27-year-old Anthony Scioli and another supporter of the statue attempted to pick it up and save it, but the woman would not give up and sat on it.
The woman, who identified herself as Nancy, is an employee at the nearby National Museum of the American Indian.
She then called police who later came to the scene. By 8:30 am, the statue was taken away in a van because Scioli failed to get a permit for the demonstration.
The incident was captured on video.
“Yeah I hope they put you in cuffs,” Scioli said. “I’m just trying to preserve my art here.”
“This is my workplace, I have to look at this?” the woman responded.
One man yelled out “Does anyone have a forklift?” as the woman sat on the statue.
“To put something up like this in front of my work place…I shouldn’t have to see this,” she told the Daily News.
The statue came exactly three months after the artist group INDECLINE erected a naked Donald Trump statue in Union Square.
