based soccer team Fulham F.C. has erected a statue of Michael Jackson as a new attraction outside of their historic Craven Cottage Stadium.Fulham club owner Mohamed Al Fayed was good friends with the late pop icon and stated his point of view to fans that “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin.”
“Why is it bizarre?” Al-Fayed asked. “Football fans love it. If some stupid fans don’t understand and appreciate such a gift, they can go to hell.”
While Fulham fans seem divided on the issue at best, and art critics are overwhelmingly panning it, the statue hasn’t yet negatively impacted the Fulham players, who told Blackpool to “Beat It” winning the match three-nil.
