    Behold The World's Worst John Lennon Statue

    Colombian drug lord Carlos Lehder commissioned this statue of a nude Lennon wearing a Nazi helmet and carrying a guitar. Oh, and there's a huge hole in his chest, just to make it extra tasteless.

    Carlos Lehder wasn't just the kingpin of the Medellin drug cartel – he was also a neo-Nazi and a hardcore Beatles fan. He opened a German-themed resort hotel called the Posada Alemena in Pereira, Colombia at the peak of his wealth and power in the early Eighties. This statue was erected in the hotel's courtyard only a few years after Lennon was murdered in New York. It is, you see, Lehder's tribute to the fallen Beatle.
