    Possibly one of the greatest moments in one's life, being so honored they have a statue made of them. Then doing this to prank them, this is what evil looks like. xD

              Not much snootiness to trace in Mr. Beckhams behavior, he really does come off as a polite and humble guy despite having a statue made of himself. So many stars these days are so high on themselves it's embarrassing...

                                                I don't get people who are saying Beckham was impolite for saying "This is an embarassment".. You guys must be a saint huh!!! It is indeed an embarassment if a commissioned artist does a disfigured statue in real life, unless it was intentional.. Beckham didnt raise his voice and he apologised for the criticisms he was making. Well played tbh 👏
