Inflatable Christmas Tree Art Draws Protest in Paris

Inflatable Christmas TreeAnti-gay activists in Paris are protesting a giant inflatable Christmas tree – because it looks too much like a butt plug. The 80ft (24m) high inflatable sculpture was erected this week by LA-based artist Paul McCarthy, in Place Vendome, near Paris city centre.

However, the installation – known as ‘Tree’ – has faced protests from far-right group Printemps Francais, because of its resemblance to a sex toy.

The anti-gay group claimed the privately commissioned work had “disfigured” Paris, adding: “This is where your money goes, taxpayers!”.
