This is why we can’t have nice things!
Less than a week after New York saw the installation of the “Fearless Girl” statue — in which a young girl, cast in bronze, defiantly stares down the Wall Street bull — some douche nozzle Wall Street “bro” has publicly defiled it.
The temporary statue — created by artist Kristen Visbal and placed on Broadway for a week (though an extension is being sought) — is meant to make a statement about the future of Wall Street. “We wanted this wonderful contrast,” says Visbal, referring to the young child and the symbol of Wall Street, an aggressive bull. “I think the fact that she’s a child makes the figure much more endearing.”
Of course, that’s not gonna keep this guy (pictured below) from humping the statue so his friends can snap photos. If it’s not cool for a grown man to engage in sexual acts with a young girl, it’s equally as ridiculous to pose for pictures doing the same with a statue of said young girl, no? Come on, man. Be better.
The photo of this well-dressed fella — we’ll call him “Broseph” — has already started to make the rounds on social media. It has incited outrage from feminists of all stripes who can’t help but facepalm such a ridiculous (but, of course, on cue) incident.
“Almost as if out of central casting, some Wall Street finance broseph appeared and started humping the statue while his gross date rape-y friends laughed and cheered him on. He pretended to have sex with the image of a little girl. Douchebags like this are why we need feminism,” says one woman who posted the above image to Facebook.
