This is not the type of reaction a Christmas tree is supposed to bring as residents of a community think this is a joke taken too far.
A Christmas tree which residents think it looks like an erect p3nis has led angry locals to lodge several complaints with authorities, according to Ren TV.
This tree is located in the village of Vitim, in the Lensky district of Russia’s far-eastern republic on Sakha.
Following series of furious backlash which the tree has caused, authorities in Vitim have been forced to tell local media that the Christmas tree is still being worked on, specifying that they were going to add extra branches to make it less penis-like.
A spokesperson has said that they are aiming for a more traditional look, with baubles and decorations also to be added.
The spokesperson explained “they will hang decorations, more work is underway” and that they will “finish everything by the end of the week”.
Regarding the complaints, the spokesperson said: “We take them all very seriously, both the jokes and those not meant as jokes.”
Bizarrely, it isn’t the first time that Russia has been rocked by a penis-shaped Christmas tree controversy.
