  1. Those teens may live here but I guarantee you they weren’t born and raised in the islands. They obviously moved here, resent living here, and have zero guidance on how to live with kindness, compassion, respect, empathy, and love for fellow humans. They may as well be robots who are void of light and love. Sadly, what they did to the sculpture appears to be a lashing out of what was done to her as a child.

  2. They need to be held fully accountable for what they did, they destroyed someone else's property..((that's criminal property damage period!!!))😒

  3. Ouch, so they ARE local girls? I feel very, very sorry for them. I thought they'd escape the wrath that could conceivably ensue by being tourists after they returned home. But they live on Oahu? Charges aren't the only consequence here. Unfortunately for them.

  4. Nach den Guten aufnahmen werden sie sicher erwischt.Und müssen alle anfallenden Kosten bezahlen.Als Bonbon wäre noch eine Psychologische Untersuchung angeraten.Einfach so,sollte man das nicht ab tun,das war dumm und bösartig.

  5. What the two have done is really vile. Seemingly the reason for their jealousy of beautiful things is: They look like losers.

  6. The police should name and shame the girls, who should be sentenced to 1,000 hours of community service cleaning up Honolulu beaches. You can tell they come from white trash families because the parents haven't made public apologies for their daughters' vandalism.

  7. They should get twenty years in prison with only salads to eat. I don't understand it, girls that are big fat and ugly think they should be allowed to destroy the world.

  8. Психически больная девушка…. Это всё Европейские ценности и толерантность Европейская…. Есть поговорка у русских: "Дитя воспитывают пока ложится поперёк лавки, а дальше уже поздно!". Из видео видно, что этой девушке в детском возрасте всё было позволено, родители бегали на задних лапках перед ней по первому её капризу.

  9. What a master artist to be able to fly in and fix this beautiful sand art. Unbelievable. How God has gifted life…

  10. You could tell she thinks it’s funny. That so disrespectful, round of applause for the artist because he stayed respectful the whole time and you could tell that he will gladly remake the sculpture because he loves what he does

  11. Artist : Finaly after 25 years of making this statue . And days without sleep . It is finaly done .
    A fat teenage girl 1 : OMG girl lets like destroy this statue to have mor like on twter or instagram or watever .
    A fat teenage girl 2 : OMG girl what a great idea . And the owner won't mind . I think it took . I dont know 2 hours . And it so ugly . We will do him a faivor .
