It seems that San Franciscans just aren’t that into Super Bowl 50 statues placed around the city in recent weeks.

The statues have been vandalized, pushed over and had letters rearranged to spell other things (“Up R Bowel,” for example), according to news reports and social media.

The Super Bowl will be played Sunday in nearby Santa Clara. But the host committee placed the statues, which say “50,” in San Francisco, where many of the thousands of visitors and fans are staying.

Deadspin reported on some of the statue shenanigans. Check out tweets about the statue tippers and vandals below as well.
