A petition on Change.org has been started to replace the statue of Robert E. Lee with a statue of GWAR’s Oderus Urungus in Richmond, Virginia. Currently, there are over 20,000 signatures. Oderus Urungus (aka Dave Brockie) was the legendary frontman and bass player of GWAR for over 25 years who died in 2014.
From the Change.org petition started by GWAR Scumdog:
Robert E. Lee is a failed war general that supported a racist cause. For too long, the city of Richmond has been displaying statues of him and other loser civil war veterans.
We the scumdogs of the universe call on the city of Richmond to erect a statue of great local leader Oderus Urungus in its place. While Oderus comes from the planet Scumdogia, he called Richmond his home, working with the local art community and employing local artists and ladies of the night.
