Alan Markovitz recently moved into the home where the statue was erected, which happens to be next to the home where his ex-wife now lives with her new lover, whom she reportedly had an affair with while being married to Markovitz. Markovitz tells Fox 2's Randy Wimbley his plan was to get even the ex-wife's new lover, and never meant for the matter be made public. However, it soon grabbed local attention when the ex-wife's daughter posted a picture of the statue on twitter. The installation of the statue also included a spotlight to keep the message illuminated at all hours of the day. http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/2...ects-giant-middle-finger-statue#ixzz2kpWPZTKU Howard related because he gave us the middle finger?
