CELORON, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – A statue of Lucille Ball was erected last year in her hometown of Celoron, New York. Immediately, it was mocked by many, especially the loyal fans because it looked nowhere like the American television’s iconic comedian.
Over the weekend, it was finally replaced with a statue designed by Carolyn Palmer, unveiled before adoring Lucy fans.
But in a surprising turn of events this week, the new statue was again replaced, this time with the image of Melania Trump.
The Adobo Chronicles learned that the Trump Organization purchased the new statue and paid the local government an undisclosed amount as part of Donald Trump’s campaign strategy in his home state of New York.
“We are very confident that New Yorkers love Melania and even more confident that she will become the next First Lady,” a Trump spokesperson said. “So we saw it fit to erect a statue in her honor. Plus, we think it is a prime real estate acquisition.”
Residents of Celoron are planning a massive protest rally at the Lucille Ball Memorial Park on Friday.
