While the “Black Panther” beats box-office records around the world, in South Korea, a drunken resident beat a statue of the main character of the film. In support of the promotional company, Disney sent a couple of statues to Busan, but one of them returned earlier and broken. As reported by local television, the unknown attacked the statue.
The incident occurred on the night of March 16. In the morning the locals found a black panther with a broken leg dropped from the pedestal.
Given how many cameras are installed on Korean streets, the offender will be found. The Korean Film Council called the incident shameful. The statue did not last even a month
