A Nebraska Woman Claims the Spider-Man Statue “Demonic” and “Anti-Christian”

Do you know the villains who trouble and hate the friendly neighborhood Superhero, the beloved Spider-Man? Green Goblin and Doc Octopus top the list. But this time, Spidey has found a new misanthrope in the form of a real human, a Nebraska woman.

This happened on Friday when Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird in Lincoln, Nebraska, received an email of criticism from a local woman. She claims that the statue of Spider-Man at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo resembles to be Satanic or devil.

The statue draws a hand of Spider-Man in a web-shooting position with middle and ring fingers pressed to the palms. The women believe that the figure is an anti-christian by stating that it is a sculpture of two hands open, painted Red & Black, and formed into Devil Horns.

The Lincoln Journal Star reported that six-foot-tall sculpture is a hate crime against the church. 

According to KOVR, the actual thing is different. The sculpture of Spider-man isn’t a matter of contention for the city. Indeed the statue has been displayed to aid a nonprofit and faith-based organization in the area. The executive director from Serving Hands, Matt Schulte, quoted that the sculpture isn’t a devil-related at any point, as a matter of fact, the sculpture intends a child-like resemblance.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is currently running theaters conquering the hearts of all Superhero movie fans and dominating the box office.
