Statue of Scottish hero William Wallace becomes the laughing stock of social media


A statue of the Scottish hero William Wallace unveiled this Sunday in front of the football stadium of Brechin (United Kingdom) has aroused hilarity and mockery on social networks. The sculpture inspired by the character played by Mel Gibson in Braveheart is indeed as failed as it is ridiculous, have estimated many Internet users. Several have compared it to the statue of Cristiano Ronaldo erected in Madeira (Portugal), says The Herald.

The almost 4-meter-high work imagined and produced by Tommy Church was exhibited in various cities before arriving at its final exhibition location. The artist from Brechin gave it to the local football club this year. Events and games were organized around the inauguration ceremony of the sculpture. The event also raised 600 pounds (nearly 700 euros) to finance dialysis.

Internet users unleashed

It was above all an opportunity for the population to discover the appearance of the statue. The reactions did not take long. “Did he accidentally step on a Lego brick?” A Twitter user asked with irony on Monday about William Wallace’s facial expression. Another internet user made the parallel between the sculpture and the painting. The Scream d’Edvard Munch.

“Are they somehow the same family?” He asked himself. The organizers, for their part, preferred to keep their seriousness and welcomed on the social network to “see members of all ages from the community come in large numbers to support the event”.
