- The statue which was modelled after a heartwarming moment between Ramaphosa and Kolisi during the SA rugby world cup win euphoria, raised a lot of eyebrows
- Many locals headed to the comment section where they laughed at how the statue did not accurately represent the famous South Africans
South Africans are known to laugh at the craziest things. This time they were left howling by a statue of Siya Kolisi and President Cyril Ramaphosa that was recently erected at a South African mall.
A snap shared on Twitter by a user with the Twitter handle @_SonOfMars shows the statue versions of President Ramaphosa and Kolisi moments after the Springboks won the rugby world cup.
"Cryingggggg. Yall don't see the president at all," Son of Mars captioned the snap.
Locals completely agreed that the statues were not accurate representations of the two prominent South African figures and they made this extremely clear in the comment section of the hilarious post.
Read a few of their comments below:
"We’ll come back to the Zekhethe legs afterwards, why are Siya’s arms so skinny."
@nomanoty jokingly asked:
"Kolisi with the under 13 rugby socks, lmaoooo"
"I am so done with this country"
"Second-hand embarrassment e reng mo baneng? They can’t even look directly at the mess"
"We see that but why do these two guys who are passing look like they have a lot to say but they are afraid to say it because it'll get them in trouble?"
Briefly News also reported that Dolly Parton has said no to a statue in her honour. The legendary US singer took to social media recently to share a statement where she addressed the Tennessee legislature.
The state legislature was considering a bill to erect a statue of the music icon on the Capitol grounds. The star declined the offer due to the ongoing pandemic. In the statement she posted on Twitter on Thursday, 18 February, Dolly said:
"I am honoured and humbled by their intention but I have asked the leaders of the state legislature to remove the bill from any and all consideration. Given all that is going on in the world, I don't think putting me on a pedestal is appropriate at this time."
