SAN FRANCISCO (CBSNewYork/AP) — Social media is finding little to like about the likeness on a plaque honoring retired soccer champion Brandi Chastain.
The Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame in San Francisco announced Tuesday it will redo the plaque, which had been unveiled a day earlier.
Chastain said, “It’s not the most flattering. But it’s nice.”
On Twitter, fans compared the likeness to former President Jimmy Carter and actor Gary Busey.
Other Twitter users said it made the statue of soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo look “perfect” by comparison.
Hall of Fame vice president of finance and administration Anthony Savicke told The Mercury News of San Jose that images on the plaques are “representations” and never intended to be photographic likenesses.
Chastain is often remembered for ripping off her jersey and showing her sports bra after nailing the game-winning penalty kick in the 1999 World Cup.
Other infamous “botched” bronzes include a statue of Lucille Ball which was mounted — and eventually corrected — in Celeron, N.Y.
