Jackson Statue Erected Outside Soccer Stadium

4/3/2011 1:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

English Premier League soccer and Michael Jackson are synonymous with each other (just go with it) so it should come as no surprise that a statute in his honor was unveiled outside a stadium in London today.

Turns out the owner of the Fulham FC, Mohamed Al Fayed, was close friends with Jackson. He had originally planned to put the statue outside of Harrods in London, but he sold the store last year.

So now it is displayed outside of a soccer stadium in London. Perfect match.

Leave it to the Brits who are fascinated with soccer, the gayest game on earth, to worship the homosexual child molester MJ.
I have no idea where Fulham is, but i wish their team nothing but failure.

I LOVE YOU MICHEAL :) I'm so glad this statue is up:) He was the most amazing human being! I don't know how people could be so cruel to him when all he did was give to charities and try to make this world a better place! It makes me cry seeing all these hurtful comments! He will always be one of the most AMAZING human beings! RIP MJJ <3 God Bless you all! Tweet me @Jasminepena93 if ur an MJ fan too :)

What an awful statue, and yet it still looks more human then Micheal did. Micheal had lost his human features and simply looked humanoid at the time of his death. It was disturbing to look at him.
