COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Denmark’s oldest shopping mall has reversed its determination not to exhibit a statue of Michael Jackson.

Jesper Andreasen, manager of the Roedovre Centrum mall in suburban Copenhagen, says on Facebook it was “an overreaction” to take away the statue, including the late singer “has by no means been discovered responsible of any of the accusations towards him.”

The statue was taken out after about 15 online complaints, principally from families with youngsters, fearing it might offend clients and may be vandalized due to allegations that Jackson molested boys.

The mall is displaying wax statues of major stars, including Marilyn Monroe and Julia Roberts, on a central square to coincide with Danish faculties’ weeklong winter break that began Monday. The Jackson figure was back Wednesday.
