The bronze statue made in Ball’s likeness has been on display since 2009 and is almost unrecognizable to fans of Ball’s iconic I Love Lucy. Fans and town residents are asking that the statue be removed and replaced.

“It looks like a monster,” said one Celoron resident. “It not only does not look like Lucy, it doesn’t look human. And at nighttime it’s even scarier.”

According to reports, town officials are also in agreement that the statue should be replaced, but they don’t have the funds to do so. Mayor Scott Schrecengost told reporters that replacing the head of the statue would cost between $8,000-$10,000.

While the statue has been causing local controversy since 2009, the story recently gained attention when the Facebook Page “We Love Lucy! Get Rid of this Statue” suddenly went viral.
