See that bench up there? The one that Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort are sitting on?
Ya know,from the most pivotal scene in The Fault in Our Stars!
Well, DUN DUN DUN it’s gone missing from Amsterdam.
Someone stole it! How does one steal a bench?!
But, here’s the thing, officials from the city didn’t even know it was missing for about a month or so!
They only became aware of it’s disappearance when fans of the book/film started asking what had happened to it!
Which brings about the question… WHO stole the bench?
It was most likely a couple fans of the film who decided that they wanted it for themselves, so they took it.
BUT it could be as simple as the city took it away to perform some maintenance OR even locals who were unhappy with the extra tourist traffic, so took it away to solve the problem!
However, the city spokesman, Stephan van der Hoek, commented on it’s MIA status let everyone know whether or not they would replace it!
‘It’s a bit embarrassing, because we do keep good track of them, but it’s gone all right… Keep your eyes on eBay.’
LOLOL! At least he’s got a sense of humor about it! Though we WOULD like to know who the culprit is!
Was it those dedicated fans or locals who couldn’t take the extra tourists in their neighborhoods!?! And like, seriously? How did you guys just WALK OFF with a bench! Was it even bolted to the ground, cuz if it was — commitment!
Guess we’ have to wait and see if it DOES turn up on eBay!!
