London’s Fulham Football Club unveiled a 7′ statue of Michael Jackson this week much to the bewilderment of the fans. Team chairman Mohomed Al Fayed wanted to honor his deceased friend and says fans can simply “go to hell” if they don’t like it.
Originally the statue, which resembles a giant plastic figurine, was planned for Harrods until Al Fayed sold his share of the store last year. FFC supporters are wondering what Jacko and football have in common. One lifelong Fulham fan feared, “The team is going to be the laughingstock of the Premiership! It is an absolute disgrace.” Another snickered about the possibilities of vandalism, ” I can already picture toy doll dressed in a Chelsea kit dangling from his arms.”
The monstrosity inside Craven Cottage has already been dubbed the ugliest statue in London.
