I’m sure you have all heard by now the details of the unveiling of Michael’s statue at Craven Cottage this past weekend. But if you haven’t, here’s the rundown…
This past Sunday, Mohamed Al Fayed erected his long awaited statue paying homage to Michael outside his stadium Craven Cottage. During the unveliling, all went well, and Al Fayed even got down to a couple of MJ’s tunes. However, as with anything Michael related and positive, negative controversy is sure to follow. Fans of Al Fayed’s club threatened with protests and walkouts because they were unhappy with the statue.
“Why is it bizarre?” Al Fayed asked reporters after the unveiling. “Football fans will love it. If some stupid fans don’t understand and appreciate such a gift that this guy gave to the world, they can just go to hell.” “I don’t want them to be fans if they don’t understand, and believe the things which I believe in… they can go and support Chelsea or somewhere else,” he said.

“People will queue to come and visit it from all over the UK and it is something that I and everybody else should be proud of.” – Mohamed Al Fayed
My kind of guy.
