In response to his critics, Fabio posted a viral video on TikTok (@theefabiojackson) of his childhood snaps – which amassed 1.7million views from stunned social media users.
Fabio says he has always naturally resembled Michael since he was around eleven-years-old and that he’s never had any plastic surgery to achieve the look.
He says: ‘The comparisons to Michael have been going on ever since high school to college then university and it just keeps getting more and more frequent now. I was bullied at school because I looked so much like Michael. It was hard.
‘As you can see from my video, nothing has changed in my looks. I’ve just grown up, my jaw has got wider, my teeth have shifted, my eyes are still the same and yes I still have my long hair like Michael.

‘With people on the streets now it a whole different thing, they double take, they call at me and they take pictures of me.
‘In the UK, people are usually very happy to see me and thank me as if I did something to achieve Michael’s look but it’s natural. People are seeing my TikTok videos now and seeing that I’m real.
‘When people look at me, they see this famous face so I have to balance it out and try to be a good influence to the world.
‘So I’m not going to do anything when people are mean to me online. There are so many people out there that wish to be Michael or just had a small percentage of this resemblance to him.
Despite making a career out of his uncanny resemblance to MJ, Fabio doesn’t consider himself a ‘huge fan’ but admires the pop stars commitment to charitable causes
‘Michael has been like a teacher to me. I don’t see myself as a huge fan but I appreciate the man and the way he tried to do so much for the world.
‘I’m shy in the real world but I love performing and dancing like Michael. When I’m being creative, nothing else matters’
Fabio’s video of his younger snaps received hundreds of thousands of likes – with many viewers claiming that he is the original Michael Jackson.
One follower commented: ‘I think it’s safe to say that he doesn’t look like Michael Jackson, Michael Jackson looks like him.’
