Czech Residents Against the Erection of Michael Jackson Statue


Michael Jackson


To be unveiled on the late King of Pop's supposed 52nd birthday, the statue is not getting any support from the local residents because of 'no real connection'.

Plans to erect a Michael Jackson statue in the Czech Republic have been met with criticism by locals, who argue the late King of Pop had no real connection to the country. City officials in Prague have approved a request by a group of Jackson fans to place a six foot (1.83 metre) tall tribute to the "Thriller" hitmaker in Letna Park, where the singer performed in 1996.

The column, featuring a bronze bust of the superstar, was due to be unveiled on what would have been Jackson's 52nd birthday on August 29. But thousands of Czech residents are angry at the prospect of having a statue of the singer in Prague and local art gallery bosses have proposed installing a piece of work by a contemporary Czech artist instead.

Jackson died a year ago last Friday, June 25.
