First there was a naked Donald Trump statue. Now there's a statue of a topless, hoofed Hillary Clinton.

The life-size statue of the Democratic presidential nominee appeared outside a subway station Tuesday in lower Manhattan.

It wasn't immediately clear who created the statue, but it caused quite a stir. A video showed it knocked down, with a woman stomping and at one point sitting on top of it to prevent others from putting it upright.

In August, an artist similarly displayed a naked statue of Donald Trump outside New York's Union Square and another one that raised eyebrows in San Francisco, among others across the country. It was removed because it wasn't permitted.

Police and city officials haven't said why and how the Clinton statue was removed.

Clinton's campaign didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
