LONDON (AFP) - A statue of Michael Jackson dangling his baby son out of a hotel window has been erected in Britain, sparking anger Wednesday from die-hard fans of the late pop icon.
The life-sized sculpture, entitled Madonna and Child, depicts the notorious incident when the singer held his youngest son Prince Michael II out of the window in Berlin in 2002 in front of hundreds of shocked fans.
Fans of Jackson, who died in June 2009, were swift to condemn the work by Swedish-born artist Maria von Kohler, which is mounted in a window at The Premises Studios, a music studio in east London.
Jackson fans get angry because this is the kind of thing they have to deal with day in and day out, said one comment on website.
