There's a photo of a 2Pac statue floating around Twitter today that has everyone up in arms.
It's actually an old statue. It sat outside the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Stone Mountain, Georgia until Pac's mom sold the center. The new owner commissioned a new statue, perhaps because the old one looked nothing like Pac. Now the old statue has found its way to Dallas, where Twitter rediscovered it and is roasting it for looking nothing like Pac.
Looks like this was the template photo but they failed terribly ....Whom ever did the statue......we need a refund. pic.twitter.com/V0COmInZqL— Steve. Kamau. (@Stegasteel) January 20, 2020

Making statues of people everyone recognizes from photos or memory can be tough. It works a lot better when the subject is so old the only images of them are other statues or paintings.
