A statue, part of an art route in Norwich, has been removed after a complaint by the Freddie Mercury estate. The “Freddie Mercury gorilla” (the mustache and teeth indeed makes the gorilla look like Freddie Mercury), wears a Queens suit, the estate claims that it owns the copyright on this suit.
The artist thought this would be “fan art”, however, he complied with the requests. He is now working on a new design for the gorillasuit.
