MarilynMonroe is one of the greatest sex symbols of all time.
Her famous movie scene in the dress on top of an air grate in The Seven Year Itch is a part of pop culture forever.
Now a statue in Palm Springs, based off that famous scene, had its unveiling and it brought out protestors calling it misogynistic and an eyesore.
City officials held a ceremony Sunday night to unveil the 26-foot tall stainless steel monument dubbed "Forever Marilyn" -- an art piece the city hopes will draw scores of tourists this summer to boost local revenue.
However, several dozen detractors were there chanting "Hey hey! Ho ho! Misogyny has to go!" ... and "Exploitation! Exploitation!"
Their main beef is that Marilyn's underwear can be seen when standing behind the statue.
Emiliana Guereca, executive director of Women's March Foundation, told the Desert Sun, "When you exit the museum, the statue is designed to look at her crotch and look at her buttocks and take photos. And that is no longer acceptable."
She added, "It may have been acceptable in the 1950s, but we are in 2021 fighting the same thing and women are saying enough is enough."
