Prince Selfie


ISTANBUL (AP) -- I'm thinking Kim Kardashian (the queen of selfies) should take notice:

The statue was supposed to attract tourists. But the artwork erected in the Turkish city of Amaysa has attracted critics -- and vandals -- instead. The statue shows an Ottoman prince taking a selfie.

Just days after it went up, someone hacked off both the cell phone and the prince's sword. Authorities plan to cut off any further vandalism.

Police have been ordered to guard over the now-disarmed prince. And city officials say they want to press charges against the vandals -- and those who expressed support for the attack on social media.

The statue of Tom Overlie taking a selfie won't be happening anytime soon.
