Cristiano Ronaldo Was Honored With A Statue And OMG It's Nightmare Fuel

This is a crime against humanity.

Posted on

To honor his career/good looks, Ronaldo was feted in his hometown of Funchal in Portugal's Madeira region on Wednesday in a ceremony renaming the local airport in his honor.

TFW you're trying to be diplomatic because they just renamed the airport after you but the statue in your honor looks like a soul-stealing bronze demon.

Naturally, people on Twitter began roasting the notoriously vain footballer and his inexplicable bust.

I don't know what you're talking about guys, I think the Ronaldo statue looks pretty good

I defy you not to feel better after viewing this picture of Cristiano Ronaldo alongside his portrait bust.

The new Ronaldo statue looks very familiar...
