An un-neighborly statue has social media abuzz today as CBS News and others are sharing pictures of a bronze middle finger erected in the back yard of a Bloomfield Hills home.  According to reports, a grumpy ex-husband purchased the home next door to his ex-wife and had the statue installed so it could be seen from the home.  The statue is even lit at night with spotlights.

The photos came from Twitter user Lenka Tuohy, who implies being the daughter of the ex-wife.  sidebar01reader_supportCBS also reports that “As of Friday, it was unclear if the city would allow the statue to stay.”
