From what we can tell, the hoop monster in question was a part of Seattle's May Day protests. Or at the very least, he was using the day as a chance to go all Monstars on the hoop. The Seattle Police Department had a good sense of humor about it at least:

Troll of the Day: Ankara Mayor Removes Controversial Robot Statue, Installs T-Rex

The mayor of Ankara, Melih Gökçek, caused an uproar in April after installing a giant, Transformer-like robot named “Otorobot” in the city.

He was being sued by the Turkish Union of Engineers and Architects for “wasting” taxpayer dollars on the statue, which he claimed was to promote a new theme park called AnkaPark.

Well all the robot-haters have won the battle… but not the war.

The robot was finally removed this week, and it was replaced with a giant, menacing Tyrannosaurus Rex.

It’s 3 meters high and 10 meters long, according to Today’s Zaman.

The mayor stated that he would be replacing the robot with a dinosaur back on April 16, and he asked people on Twitter to vote on which one it should be. According to Hurriyet Daily News, #7 won the poll, which appears to be an Apatosauarus/Brontosaurus(?). But for some reason they ultimately went with the T-Rex.

This story just keeps gets weirder. What’s next, a giant alien or zombie?

Never before has the phrase "hold the pickles" led to more near-bloodshed. Luckily, no one was hurt from this incident, except maybe our collective dignity as a nation/race of sentient beings.
