Most everyone enjoys Spider-Man, but apparently, a public art installation of the web-slinger has pissed some folks off.

A public sculpture at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo in Lincoln, Nebraska of Spidey’s signature hand gesture was mistaken for the devil horns by local Christians.

According to the Lincoln Journal Star, a local woman found the statue so offensive she contacted the city’s mayor to demand action.

In an email to Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird, the woman deemed the sculpture anti-Christian, demonic, completely inappropriate for showcase near a family attraction and said that it constitutes a “hate crime against the church.”

“It is a sculpture of two hands open, painted Red & Black, and formed into Devil Horns,” she says.

The sculpture is of course not anti-Christian and is a part of a local art installation scattered across the city in the “Serving Hands Lincoln” initiative.

Numerous artists were commissioned to create sculptures which are being auctioned later this year. Ironically, proceeds from the auction will be going to Campus Life, which is a religious organization.

Thankfully, the city has no intentions of removing the sculpture despite this woman’s outrage.
