Killion told them, "that's a freaking embarrassment". Cristiano Ronaldo's bust at the airport in his hometown was pretty bad but it doesn't even come close to being as awful as what happened to poor Brandi Chastain.

Chastain gave a diplomatic response when interviewed by the local Fox television KTVU network on Tuesday.

"It's not the most flattering", Chastain said during the ceremony, according to ESPN. Or Gary Busey, Babe Ruth, Mickey Rooney or whomever your mind's eye sees.

Move over, Scary Lucy - there's a new questionable likeness that's blowing up social media.

Mercifully, the Chastain artist who made the plaque has not been named.

"We're going to redo it", said Kevin O'Brien, the Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame president and chief executive officer.

"It's expensive", he said.

Chastain's plaque commemorated her career, but also put her in the same conversation with the bad busts of Cristiano Ronaldo and comedian Lucille Ball.

Twitter was on fire with responses from users, as to what they thought the plaque really looked like.

'Still, I said: "I'm not happy with it".

'He has always done great work for us.

Brandi Chastain is an American legend.

He said Chastain was a "delightful" person who received the first plaque graciously.
