Don't say the headline didn't warn you. But a statue depicting Donald Trump in his birthday suit has appeared in Los Feliz—and we don't think The Donald would appreciate its depiction of his, um, attributes.The statue is the work of an anarchist art collective known as INDECLINE, according to the Washington Post. Earlier this year, the same group covered the Hollywood Walk of Fame with the names of victims of police brutality.

The statue itself is credited to an artist who simply calls himself Ginger and is titled "The Emperor Has No Balls." Much like artist Illma Gore's painting, it's not very generous towards Trump and the size of his manhood. Here's a video of Ginger in action, putting together the work:

As you can see in the video, there are multiple statues, and they have been spotted in New York, San Francisco, Cleveland and Seattle.

Due to the clandestine nature of the work, we expect it to be not long for this earth (like Trump's chances in this election—hey-o!), so check it out while you can as it stands in front of Soap Plant & WACKO at 4633 Hollywood Blvd., if you want.
