The iconic globe at the SM Mall of Asia has reportedly gone missing.
Mall management issued a statement hinting about the loss of the structure, saying an investigation was underway.
“SM Mall of Asia is currently working with authorities in investigating the MOA Globe incident,” the mall giant said.
It tried to assure customers that it has proper security protocols.
“With our security measures in place, rest assured that the SM Mall of Asia continues
to be a safe space for your family and friends,” the mall owned by the Sy-blings added.
A netizen claims the towering structure has been taken via helicopter, while some photos showed the globe is still there but has been covered up.

There's something weird about the theft of the MOA Globe. A helicopter took it? Sounds like some sort of gimmickry….
