Sugar Land ‘selfie statue’ causing ire in city


SUGAR LAND, TX (WCMH)-The city of Sugar Land, in east Texas, has some permanent photo-takers right in the town square.

One of two recently-donated bronze sculptures features two young women taking a selfie near a bench with City Hall in the background.

According to a city press release, the statues are part of a 10-piece collection donated by a Sugar Land resident to the city through its Sugar Land Legacy Foundation.

The city said the photos “show activities common in the plaza.”

People criticized the statues on social media, but the city emphasized they are a donation and pointed out that several different organizations had approved the designs.
