Spider-Man Statue Removed From South Korean Playground Because It Has A Gigantic Boner

After erecting a statue of Spider-Man in a South Korean shopping center, artist Eunsuk Yoo met stiff resistance from the people who run it. It seems they took a long, hard look at the spectacular piece after suspicions were aroused about its suitability.┬áThe statue has now been yanked off, despite being impressively hung on that wall for almost a year. Yoo may feel he got the shaft, but one hopes he understands the thrust of the mall’s decision.

It’s mainly because the statue has a giant tumescent penis and people were starting to get weirded out.

As revealed in pictures from Kotaku, the statue was commissioned for the Lotte Shopping Center in Busan, South Korea, specifically near the mall’s playground which… I mean, we can all agree that was probably a bad choice, right? The statue’s extremely prominent phallus has mostly gone unnoticed for the past year, likely because the statue is positioned high on the wall, though from the side Spider-Man’s excitement at the prospect of fighting crime is certainly visible. It seems action truly is his reward.

Recent weeks have brought a number of complaints from shoppers, and while Yoo was given the option to modify the statue (possibly with a cold shower), he has instead opted to just remove it from the building entirely rather than change his art.

Yoo, in a Facebook post, has vowed to “reach out to the public with a better work next time.” As for Spider-Man, he managed to stay up for almost a year, so he should probably see a doctor.
