Amber Tamblyn Slams Artists For Trump Statues

Earlier this year, a young U.K. artist got a lot of attention (and made a lot of money) when she decided to paint an unauthorized portrait of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the buff. Now, an art collective has decided to expose the candidate to the U.S. by erecting life-sized nude statues of him in cities across the country. Not everyone supports the campaign.

Indecline's life-sized statues show Trump like you've never seen him before. The GOP candidate stands with pasty skin, cellulite, man-boobs, a large gut and a tiny penis. The statues are entitled, "The Emperor Has No Balls."

Amber Tamblyn spoke out against the depiction of Trump. “Body shaming is never okay, even when it comes to [T]rump," the actress/artist tweeted.

Tamblyn posted a photo of the statue with a sandwich board photoshopped over it. The board says, "Shame me for my behavior not my body."

Some Trump haters think the statue is perfectly acceptable, because it’s art making a statement, and because it’s Trump.

“Technically speaking, if you’re anti-body shaming, that means you don’t believe in shaming anybody for his or her body, regardless of whether you agree with his or her political point of view,” said Leslie Goldman, body image expert.

Indecline defends their statues. “It is through these sculptures that we leave behind the physical and metaphorical embodiment of the ghastly soul of one of America’s most infamous and reviled politicians,” said a statement put out by the group.

Tamblyn remains unimpressed with the work. In her tweet, she says, “These statues aren’t art: They are a lazy, unoriginal concept, stolen mind you, from Ilma Gore’s painting which already made this exact same point earlier this year. This is wholly unoriginal and uncreative.”
