The statue is still there minus the peanus. People were unhappy that a statue of a bull had a peanus on it. They found that the large device was unbecoming.
The owner says he didn’t do it because his neighbers complained, he did it because he didn’t like it.
The owner of Barista’s Restaurant tells the Spectrum that he told the city: “I am not removing the penis for you or because of your complaints. I don’t like you. I’m doing it for me. I just decided it would look better without the weenie. And oh my God! It’s beautiful, Newser reports.
He doesn’t like the peanus because it “looks like a party hat” and that was not cool with him.
Ward says he paid $130,000 for the bull sculpture in Las Vegas, which he placed on a perch outside the restaurant. The outrage over the statue’s “party hat,” which led to a petition to revoke the restaurant’s license, was just the latest in a series of disputes between Ward and local residents, who declare that he is rood and has bad food and bad business practices.
He says that the bull and the debate has helped him from the amount of people coming into his store.
“I am having fun with all the attention and it’s brought in more customers,” he says.
