Statue memes: 26 marbelous memes and reactions about statues being taken down
Adios Churchill, it would seem
First, it was Edward Colston. Now it seems a day doesn’t go by without Churchill getting a redecoration with a can of spray paint from the local Halford’s. Councils are now taking the precautionary measures to remove the racist statues of slave traders and generally shitty people before they’re torn down, as various museums wait with open arms. Whatever your view is on the protests, you’ve got to admit that if there’s anything that unified us all, it’s our collective love of memes.
God, we know how to take the piss out of anything perceivably negative that comes our way in this country. We did it at the start of 2020 with the potential of a World War Three, we’ve done it with quarantine, so there was really no chance that we’d let the statues fall without a good laugh.
