Former President Trump’s wax statue was removed from Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in San Antonio, Texas after attacks left the wax replica damaged.
After being repeatedly defaced, Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks announced that the statue would be removed from its display place and moved into storage. Attraction owner Ripley Entertainment’s Regional Manager, Clay Stewart, said that presidential figures are typically rotated in and out, but constant attacks necessitated Trump’s removal.
Stewart said, “When it’s a highly political figure, attacks can be a problem.” Those attacks left the statue deeply gouged, and they peaked during the 2020 election cycle.
Stewart continued saying, “We’ve always had trouble with the presidential section because no matter what president it was — Bush, Obama, or Trump — they’ve all had people beat them. The ears were torn off Obama six times. And then Bush’s nose was punched in.”
Interestingly, another location in Grand Prairie, Texas, has seen none of the attacks that have been observed at the San Antonio location despite the statue being on display since 2017.
Even after former President Trump has left office, the animosity towards him from members of the radical left still burns strongly. Trump will likely remain a controversial figure for the rest of his life.
