Plans to erect a giant statue of Michael Jackson made from butter at the Iowa State Fair are being put to the vote.
Fair organizers announced their intention to create the butter tribute to the King of Pop just days after Jackson's death.
But the idea has proved so controversial that they are now to hold an online poll to decide whether or not to go ahead with it.
Spokeswoman Lori Chappell says Jackson was to be part of a sculpture commemorating the 40th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's moon landing.
She says because of the overwhelming response about the Jackson sculpture, both positive and negative, the fair are now conducting an online poll.
