June 02, 2016 - 1:18 PM

SUGAR LAND, Texas - While you might think a bronze statue immortalizing two girls taking a selfie would be met with approval on social media, that doesn't appear to be the case.

The city of Sugar Land, Texas, says the statue recently installed in a city plaza is meant to depict a common activity in the area.

It says the donated sculpture was reviewed and approved by a pair of citizen committees and the City Council.

Social media hasn't been as welcoming. The stature has drawn the ire of many on Twitter .

Others don't seem to think it's so bad.

They're signalling their approval by, of course, posting selfies with the sculpture .
