New MLK Statue Gets Blasted By Relatives Of Dr. King’s Wife

Reacting to the newly unveiled sculpture meant to honor Martin Luther King Jr., relatives of King’s wife, Croetta Scott King,  blasted the monument, going as far as to say, “it looks like a pe**s.”

Unveiled with much fanfare in Boston, the $10 million bronze monument, entitled “The Embrace” is an artistic representation of the famous photo of Dr. King hugging his wife after being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.

The installation of the massive statute was overseen by Embrace Boston. The group’s executive director Imari Paris Jeffries said of the statue’s intended emotional impact, “And someone said to me, before I saw it for the first time, ‘Imagine when you see it, you’re going to cry.’ And I said, ‘I’ve seen monuments before. I’m not going to cry when I see a monument.’ And I actually did.”

However, not everyone connected to the statue had the same reaction.

Seneca Scott, Cousin to Coretta Scott King, told the New York Post, “The mainstream media … was reporting on it like it was all beautiful, ’cause they were told they had to say that.”

She went on to say, “But then when it came out, a little boy pointed out — ‘That’s a penis!’ and everyone was like, ‘Yo, that’s a big old d**g, man.’”

“If you had showed that statute to anyone in the ’hood, they’d have been like, ‘No, absolutely not.’”

Seneca criticized the statue with Comact magazine saying, “Ten million dollars were wasted to create a masturbatory metal homage to my legendary family members — one of the all-time greatest American families.”

We also said, “The woke algorithm is just broke, I don’t know what else to tell you. If you went through all of that and that’s what you came up with, something’s wrong.”

Other online reactions have also describe the statue as horrific, a phallic symbol, a depiction of a sexual act or outright pornographic.
