"A statue of Melania Trump has been removed from near her hometown in Slovenia after being badly burned by vandals.

The statue, near Sevnica, central Slovenia, was set alight on July 5, Slovenian Police confirmed to CNN Thursday.

Brad Downey, the artist who commissioned the piece, told CNN Thursday that he received a call from the local police department asking him what to do with the statue, which was made in July 2019 as part of an ongoing project that includes a short documentary film.

The statue was removed on July 5, and Downey said he asked locals not to distribute photos of the scorched figure so it did not become a "violent meme."

Downey has filed a police report but said he is only interested in finding the attackers, not pressing charges against them."*
