A Turkish politician who has been the Mayor of Ankara since 1994 is currently being sued after unveiling a 20-foot-tall metal robot in the city.
After the public backlash, Gökçek simply replied ‘Respect the robot’, which surprisingly only made things worse.

Taxpayers hit the roof when Mayor Melih Gökçek pulled the sheet off his Transformer-like masterpiece, saying it is an enormous waste of their money – and rightly so, as he blew a pretty big budget on it.

The off-the-wall mayor is now being sued by the Turkish Union of Engineers and Architects’ Chambers, who have described the robot as a ‘monstrosity’.

Apparently the mayor was forced to remove the robot due to complaints and put a dinosaur statue in its place.

I am both amazed that this was made in Turkey, and depressed that people forced it to get taken down.

I'd be so stoked to have a giant robot statue in my plaza, those peasants don't know what they're on about.

Oh for fuck's sake can we just put up a giant Turkey statue and get it overwith? You know everyone wants it to happen.
