LOOK: Someone in Argentina decided to cut Lionel Messi statue in half

Last June a statue of Lionel Messi was erected in Argentina just after the team lost the Copa America final to Chile. Now, it is unrecognizable. According to Telefe in Argentina, it was vandalized and cut in half. Take a look.

Here's what it is supposed to look like.

The statue is in the process of being rebuilt, and it looks like the culprit or culprits aren't known. Still a weird thing to do.
