On Friday, a new sculpture was unveiled in Boston honoring the legacy of civil rights hero Martin Luther King, Jr. and his wife, Coretta Scott King, in the lead-up to Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday.
The result, from a variety of angles, is bizarre.
Pretty wild how they sculpted the MLK statue to look like a different sex act, hole, or bodily function from every angle. Impressive tbh. pic.twitter.com/UaGRf70QDo

Seneca Scott, a community organizer in Oakland, California, and cousin of Coretta Scott King, wrote an op-ed for Compact Mag condemning the obscene statue of MLK and Scott King that stands in Boston.
He described the new statue as a “masturbatory ‘homage’ to my family.”
“By now, I’m sure you’ve seen it. The new Boston sculpture “honoring” Dr. Martin Luther King and his wife, Coretta Scott King, looks more like a pair of hands hugging a beefy penis than a special moment shared by the iconic couple,” Scott wrote on Compact Mag.
Scott mentioned that the ‘masturbatory metal homage’ is an insult to his family.
“Created by the organization Embrace Boston, the sculpture has inspired mad jokes on Twitter, and rightly so. But for my family, it’s rather insulting. You see, Coretta was my first cousin, my grandfather’s niece, and the daughter of my great uncle Obediah Scott,” he continued.
“Ten million dollars were wasted to create a masturbatory metal homage to my legendary family members—one of the all-time greatest American families. Still, the Boston debacle could be a blessing in disguise, by exposing the insidiousness of astroturfed woke movements that have come to dominate black America: How could anyone fail to see that this was a major dick move (pun intended) that brings very few, if any, tangible benefits to struggling black families?”
According to Scott, people of color in America who are in need of assistance aren’t interested in hearing more “woke” rhetoric. They need well-paying jobs that keep pace with the rising expenses of necessities.
“Black families in America who need help don’t care for more woke slogans. They need jobs that pay the bills and keep up with food and energy costs that are rising faster than ever before for most of us. Building expensive, stupid new statues with no faces on them—and tearing down others for no good reason—are part of the same performative altruism and purity pageants that are mainstays of the woke left,” he said.
Scott continued, “so now Boston has a big bronze penis statue that’s supposed to represent black love at its purest and most devotional. This is no accident. The woke algorithm is racist and classist. Therefore, its programming will always produce things that harm black and poor people. This sculpture is an especially egregious example of the woke machine’s callousness and vanity. Hopefully, it will show more black people that these progressives just aren’t in this for our benefit.”
