Statues can cost tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars and take 3 to 9 months to complete, so a bad statue is almost always an expensive and time consuming mistake. To make matters worse, bronze statues can survive millenia.
But by far the most uncomfortable thing about a bad statue is if it is unveiled to it's subject, as is commonly the case with statues of sports icons. They must smile and shake hands while dying a little inside.
