First of all, yes, there is a statue of Woody Allen in Oviedo, Spain, one of the cities where the director shot Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
Second, it’s been vandalized before. Thieves stole his glasses.
Third, this week, the Woody Allen statue has been defaced with a garbage bag and a sign that read “Pedophiles out of our city,” as well as another sign that reads “Soy Pederasta,” or “I am a pederast,” according to El Occidental.
(For the record, and maybe my elementary Spanish isn’t the best, but wouldn’t it be “pedófilo?” Pederasty refers to homosexual relationships between an adult male and a pubescent or adolescent male, while Allen has been accused by his then-seven-year-old daughter of molestation, and of course, a relationship with his young, but legal now-wife Soon-Yi Previn.)
