Stone was used to sm*shing the glass of a window at the Madame Tussauds wax museum in Amsterdam overnight. The ac-tion appeared to ta-rget the wax statue of United States President Donald Trump.
“We have not presented him as a commentary. We are not for or aga-inst him, but we are presenting the current news,” a spokesperson for the museum told the Paro-ol.
The incident happened sometime between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The Trump statue was standing in the museum’s window with a face mask covering the president’s mouth and nose.
The figure was placed behind a plac-ard stating, “Ca-ution: Quarantine Area” on Friday, with yellow and black ca-ution tape str-ung behind the statue. The museum placed Trump in quarantine after Trump tested positive for Covid-19 last week.
Three red crosses, a symbol of the City of Amsterdam, were also spray-painted onto the museum’s storefront window where Trump was isolated. Later on Wednesday, a red curtain was drawn shut behind the br*ken glass.
The museum uses special bo*b-resistant glass to prevent br*ken spl!nters from flying around like shr-apnel. Once replaced, the Trump wax figure will not return to the high-profile Dam Square position.
“We wanted to remove it at the end of the week anyway because Trump is back in the White House,” the spokesperson told the newspaper.
