In front of the stately city hall of Sugar Land, Texas stands this bronze statue marking one of humanity's greatest inventions: the selfie.
It's one of ten statues donated by an anonymous Sugar Land resident that the city has erected for the public to enjoy. In a press release, the city government explains that the selfie statue and others "reflects the public’s strong desire for art that beautifies the city."
But not everyone appreciates the importance of the selfie in modern society. ABC News reports:
Even if taxpayer money wasn't used for the installation, some people took issue with the selfie-taking statue because, in their view, it promotes a narcissistic society.
"So, is the city of Sugar Land expecting us to take pictures with that statue of 2 girls taking a selfie?" the woman noted above asked in her tweet.
