Twitter Mocks Statue Honoring Cristiano Ronaldo That Looks Nothing Like Him

The Madeira Islands airport in Portugal attempted to make a nice gesture to the superstar soccer player by holding a press conference after renaming the airport after Cristiano Ronaldo. So far so good, right? Things took an awful turn when the time came to unveil the statue that was supposed to resemble Ronaldo’s bust and it was honestly laughable, looking nothing like the Armani model—who didn’t seem to be fazed by the butchering.

The country’s president and prime minister even flew in for the enshrinement, paying tribute to the 32-year-old Portugal legend. As usual, social media had a field day with the unforgiving bronze statue, making hilarious comparisons that I’m sure the sculptor of the work wouldn’t want to hear. Luckily for Shaquille O’Neal, his statue unveiled outside the Staples Center in Los Angeles last week (March 25) came out far better.
