A man apparently frustrated with his ex-wife purchased the house next to hers and set up a giant statue of a middle finger aimed toward her. A photo of the bronze statue appeared on Reddit today, and immediately had people talking.
As if erecting the middle finger statue wasn’t enough, the man (later identified as Alan Markovitz) went a step further and shines a spotlight on the statue after dark, making sure it is visible 24/7. So, what would possess a man to go to such levels of passive aggressive behavior?
Well, according to Gawker, Alan’s ex-wife allegedly cheated on him with someone he knew. She moved in with the man two days after moving out of his house. In response, he bought the house next to her and moved in with his daughter. His ex-wife’s daughter (Lenka Tuohy) is credited with putting the photo on her Twitter account, which has since been protected. In her tweet from November 11, Tuohy posted the photo, writing, “Alan and Tiffany are the best neighbors ❤❤❤, but ew who does that lololol #psycho.”
Tuohy added, “[I]t’s hard for me to enjoy my baths now because my fav tub is in my moms bathroom which faces out towards tif and alans house.” If the statue is enough to upset Tuohy, we’re betting it has the intended effect of upsetting her mom too.
