Fulham's Michael Jackson Statue Is More Frightening Than The Balloon Creatures From "The Wiz"

Fans of EPL team Fulham knew this day was coming for a little while. But, were they prepared for what greeted them at Craven Cottage today?

Dressed in a a silver jacket, his trademark black trousers, white socks, and iconic glove, the King of Pop was proudly revealed by the club's owner Mohamed Al Fayed ahead of their Barclays Premier League game against Blackpool.

But fans immediately took to Twitter to vent their frustrations over Fulham's latest addition.

"The Michael Jackson Fulham Statue has to be one of the worst things I've ever seen," Joe Roberts said. While Steven Ward added: "That Michael Jackson statue at Fulham looks cheap! I'm a huge MJ fan but it looks tacky."

Al Fayed however, was quick to defend the statue telling fans they "can go to hell" if they didn't like it.

Good P.R. move, guy. Anyway, in Hell and on Earth, Fulham beat Blackpool 3-0 after the unveiling.
