Well, that didn’t last long. When several entrepreneurs decided to build a 36-metre gold painted statue of Mao Zedong in the Henan province of China, it was met with mixed reviews—much like Zedong’s reign. The photos of the statue, which cost an estimated $650,000 USD to build, started to make the rounds on social media early last week, leading to a mixture of outrage and ridicule. For example, many on Twitter and Facebook joked that Mao was being depicted sitting on the porcelain throne.
Apparently, the Chinese government wasn’t too happy with the attention. Rumors began to circulate last week that the statue was being torn down. It sounds like the statue’s popularity on social media ultimately ended up being its downfall.
