Christmas tree faces protests because it looks like a sex toy

Homophobic people in Paris (France) are protesting a very big inflatable Christmas tree – because it looks too much like a butt plug.

The 24m high inflatable sculpture was erected this week by Paul McCarthy, in Vendome / Paris.

However this installation has faced protests from far-right group "Printemps Francais," ("The french spring") because of its resemblance to a sex toy. 

The homophobic group claimed the privately commissioned work had “disfigured” Paris, adding: “This is where your money goes, taxpayers!”

Other Parisians have also voiced skepticism that the installation is actually meant to be a Christmas tree – with some joking: “Frankly it’s more appropriate to have a giant buttplug in the middle of Paris than to have a Christmas tree up in October.”
