Why Fans Are Outraged About Lucy Statue

Apr 6, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Fans of television icon Lucille Ball do not love Lucy as she’s depicted in a statue in her home town of Celoron, N.Y. Fox40.com reports that the statue, which appears in a Celoron park, is being called “ugly” and has drawn comparisons to everyone from Conway Twitty and Steve Buscemi to the snake in “Beetlejuice.”

“Even Mayor Scott Schrecengost has gone on record saying he does not care for the statue, which shows the comic star holding a bottle of fictional nutrition elixir Vitameatavegamin,” the story reports. “And yet, it has been a tourist draw since 2009 for Celoron, the comedian’s birthplace, attracting visitors who pose with the statue for pictures.”

Ground zero for the movement to get rid of the statue is a Facebook page, started in 2012, called “We Love Lucy! Get Rid of this Statue.”

Here’s a picture, courtesy of the Facebook page:

Lucy, what happened? Fans want 'ugly' Lucille Ball statue replacedLucille Ball statue, Celoron, N.Y.


  1. Lucille Ball was a beautiful woman. This statue is butt ugly..looks like my fiance’s ex wife. They should tear it down and get a talented artist to do a more life-like statue.
    Shame on Celeron for putting up that atrocity!

  2. This statue is HIDEOUS! It should be removed immediately. What were these hicks thinking?

  3. After a few beers, this statue starts to not look half-bad.

  4. If I hadn’t read the article, I never in a million years would have guessed that was a statue of Lucille Ball.

  5. Looking on the bright side, it’s a dead ringer for Annie Lennox. Maybe they can sell it to her?

  6. This is not nice, she was beautiful, inside and out. COME on. Get a new one.
