Not only that but this SPAM message was attached to everyone's status that I am friends with claiming to be from me.

Here’s what you need to do if you’ve already clicked that link, connected to the page and spammed all your friends. First, revoke the app’s access. In the top right corner of your Facebook profile page, click Account, then click Privacy Settings. In the bottom left corner of the next screen, click Apps and Websites.

Then, you’ll see a list of the sites and apps that have access to your Facebook account. The culprit in this case is called Travel Inn. If you hover over that line, you’ll see a small pencil. Click the pencil, and you’ll have the option to entirely remove the app.

From your profile, you’ll see a long list of those who have been spammed. It should take you a few minutes to click your way through each link and delete your spam comment.

Beware the Coke scam as well.
