Man allegedly pulls Obama mannequin out of lingerie store display because it looked at him funny

What’s the best way to show your disdain for a former president of the United States?

Destroy its mannequin equivalent of course.

That’s what a New York man allegedly did after he was caught on video smashing the window of a lingerie store and throwing the mannequin to the ground.

According to the New York Daily News, an angry man walked by the Romantic Depot store on Jan. 26. The man allegedly paced back and forth in front of the store and then tossed a cinder block through the plate-glass window of the Harlem-based store.

The man then reportedly picked up his glove from off the ground and went back to the display and yanked out a mannequin that resembled ex-president Barack Obama.

In surveillance video released by store owner Glen Buzzetti, it appears the man grabbed one of the arms of mannequin Obama before throwing it on the ground and walking off.

Moments later the man was surrounded by security guards and apparent Obama fans, Buzzetti told the news outlet.

“We had to protect (the suspect) from the crowd,” Buzzetti said. “He could have been killed. We had women trying to kick him in the head. We had to protect him because he had damaged the Obama image.”

The Obama body double was part of a display in which it was dressed like a prince alongside a mannequin version of President Donald Trump dressed as a princess wearing a Make America Great Again baseball cap.

The store owner speculated the suspect was a Trump supporter “who was very angry with Obama’s policies.” Buzzetti told the New York Daily News the man kept saying how he hated Obama and how he ruined the country.

“He said, ‘That doll was giving me bad looks. I’m tired of him. Obama brought the country down,’” Buzzetti noted.

He said the man caused $1,000 in damages.

Rewell Altunaga, 41, has been charged with criminal mischief.
