According to the scummy guardian. Tommy Robinson is involved and he was inspired by Qanon. No evidence of course.

BBC Monitoring journalist Shayan Sardarizadeh said the presence of Gill’s statue on the front of the building had been “an obsession for British QAnon, ‘save our children’, ‘satanic ritual abuse’ and other conspiracy groups for a very long time”. The motives or identity of the person attacking the statue with a hammer are unknown.

 

The presence of an artwork by a known paedophile on the headquarters of the national broadcaster has become a regular focus of social media discussion and far-right activists such as Tommy Robinson have regularly cited its presence while criticising the BBC.

That would be the same Guardian that permitted this to be printed, as if concerned about censorship.

But couldn't wait to celebrate the removal of slavery icons without a care for censorship.

That piece on Eric Gill is loathsome. 

(It does not mention the statue at the BBC HQ.)

 

We should take all his 'art' and publicly destroy it.. Remove his work from history but keep the Diaries for all to read and comprehend why his work was removed. 

Proper righteous moral Cancel Culture with integrity.

When I was watching the guy hammering away (quite ineffectively) I did imagine looping a thick rope or chain around it and attaching it to a suitable vehicle..

The artwork versus the artist

By Katie Razzall, culture editor

What defines an artist - their work or their life? Ever since Eric Gill's crimes have come to light, it's been something to ponder as you walk into the BBC's Old Broadcasting House, entering the building under his looming Prospero and Ariel.

But when I arrived at work on Wednesday afternoon, a ladder was leaning up against the building and a man stood on the plinth above the doorway, shouting "paedophile" and attacking the statue with a hammer, feet first.

He was also trying to detach the 10ft (3m) sculpture from whatever anchors it to the BBC offices. On the pavement, another man livestreamed it.

With every loud smash, there'd be a moan or a shout of "stop" from someone in the gathering crowd below. It felt brutal; an assault on beauty.

Eric Gill was a monster, a depraved paedophile who abused his daughters and others. But as a sculptor he made wondrous creations.

At a time when statues across the country are being reassessed, there'll be those who believe that if it's legal to tear down a monument to a prominent slaver, as happened in Bristol, it is also time to do the same to an artwork by a man who committed horrific sexual crimes. If that's the case though, where does it end?

Seeing it was not going to be that easy to destroy, I would've at least destroyed the genitals of the child statue.

That would've hurt the pedos feelings even more and got a point across to the spectators about BBC's pedophilia tendencies... 

 

As far as I know that is exactly what he did..

It's a pity people don't smash the whole of the BBC up, lying propaganda merchants that try to force people to pay for their "services".  They never report anything that doesn't suit them even if it's right outside their front door.... "Unbiased" my arse!

 

Out of reactions.

I don't see any evidence of that in the video...  🤔


lt's either in one of the videos (the last one where he gets lifted down?) or in a photo l saw.
The child's penis is definitely missing now..

Edit - added picture with at least 3 areas of damage.

I can't believe I'm writing this but I never thought one day I would wonder about that...  😅

I just wasn't aware about it since I hadn't seen it in videos.

I'm sure there's better subjects to discuss besides a child statue's penis.

Sorry  😉

Looks like it's not just that statue, there's other ones as well. The whole building needs demolishing! 

 

Statue of Ariel and Prospero, Broadcasting House | Society X (wordpress.com) 

Indeed, and his stuff is everywhere in the whole of the UK, he created typefaces that are used in loads of signage such as the railways!  The BBC logo itself i believe uses one of his fonts!!!!
