All the people who should get statues instead of those confederate shitbags
Beyoncé always and forever
by Jenn Ficarra
There are way too many erected statues of old, white, racist men that simply should not exist.
Glorifying racism isn't just wrong, it's disgusting, and there are plenty of other people who deserve statues in place of these literal losers.

Why are we continuously putting up statues of men who don't deserve it? Why are we trying to preserve the wrong kind of history? There are plenty of other people out there who have shaped the world and our lives who deserve to be immortalized in bronze.

Meryl Streep as Julia Child
Specifically, this image of her holding the chicken.
Britney Jean Spears
Haters back off, the Princess of Pop just sang live this past weekend reminding us all that she is now and forever perfection. Immortalize her and fast.
Like the finest wine, Uncle Jesse just keeps getting better with age. It'd be hard to capture his beauty in bronze but I believe someone should be up for the task.

No explanation necessary. #Notoriousrbg for life.
Honorable Mentions: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Janet Jackson, The drunk girl at the bar who told me I looked pretty, Bikini waxers, the cast of One Tree Hill, Mindy Kaling, Sean Combs circa Puff Daddy era, Lauren Conrad, J. Lo but only in this outfit, Ameila Earhart, Lin Manuel Miranda, and, of course, Carrie Fischer.
