A Life-Sized Kanye West “Jesus Statue” Gets Crucified

An L.A. based street artist by the name of Plastic Jesus has just taken to the corner of Hollywood Blvd and unveiled his latest creation which is a life-sized statue of Kanye West. This provocative piece is apparently titled “False Idol” and is consists of a Kanye statue resembling a crucified Jesus covered in gold. The statue is said to not be a direct attack on Kanye West but is the artist’s way of putting in question society’s proneness to idolize celebrities.

“He’s a genius at writing and producing but he’s not a God, and that’s where we put him. Until there’s an issue in his life or a hiccup in his career, then we crucify him. We’ve seen it before with people like Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan. The same people who put him into a God-like place are the same yapping at his heels for a piece of flesh when something happens.” – Plastic Jesus
