Lucille Ball is an entertainment legend, so it’s no surprise that her hometown of Celoron, NY wanted to memorialize their famous daughter. To honor her, the town erected a bronze statue of Ball at Lucille Ball Memorial Park and it’s, well, something… And that something is terrifying. It’s so scary that there is Facebook page called, “We Love Lucy! Get Rid of This Statue” and it has over 8,000 likes, The page is requesting that the town replace the statue, perhaps with something that more accurately reflects her likeness.
The only thing I can think of when I see this statue is, “Bless their heart.”
Let’s hope they replace this statue soon.
