MK: PETITION STARTED TO PUT UP MISSY ELLIOT STATUE UP IN HOME TOWN.


A resident of Portsmouth, Va. is the latest individual to take action against one of the city's controversial monuments. Nathan Coflin recently started a petition on Change.org calling on the city council to replace a Confederate monument in Olde Towne with "a true Porthsmouth native hero." Instead, he proposes that Missy Elliott be honored because of her status as an iconic local legend.
