This just happened in New York and social media is in a state of shock…

African culture is being celebrated today in NYC by the Smithsonian with a 25 foot-tall statue that you’ve got to see to believe:

I don’t mean to be insensitive, but what the heck?

I was not expecting a statue like this and neither were many on Twitter:

There were a lot more comments of shock that I don’t want to post here because of language, but I’m sure you can imagine. Several said it looked like Don Cheadle though, LOL.

Honestly, I’m not sure I saw one single positive comment on the statue. Seriously, what were these people thinking?
