Store Profiting Off Jackson Kids Grief!

How awful and awkward!

While going to have some fun at Universal Studios two of Michael Jackson's kids Paris and Prince passed by a shop that sells postcards of the sad kids during their father's memorial at the Staples Center for $1.99.

Profiting off a tragic event and their grief is just wrong.

Luckily, we don't think the kids saw them.

We're just wondering who in their right mind would buy the postcards?

And more importantly, why?

  2. 2

    Aren't you doing that right now?



  3. 3

    Dear Hypocrite,
    If it weren't for the exploitation of other people's misfortune and trauma, you wouldn't have a blog.



  4. 4

    thats exactly what michael wanted to keep them away from the craziness
    wtf thats stupid and sick whats next beach towels with their faces on it ? lol i may be giving some sickos ideas ,and aww look at little blanket hes too cute



  5. 5

    That is some straight bitchassness! Michael would be rolling around in his grave if he every found out. Their are some sick people that will do anything to make a buck! Sad, sad, sad!

    That's very sad. But then again how are they any different then you? You posting about them, especially plastering their pictures on your site is no different. Don't act like you care. Remember, You thought their father was "faking it" remember??? And before you thought he was "faking it" you used to talk about their father horribly. Even criticizing his parenting skills by wanting to sheild their identities in public etc. You say luckilly they didn't see this so called postcard but hopefully they never have to see all the messed up stuff you and other people said about their father. How about you do his 3 children a favor by apologizing…
    R.I.P Michael

    That's terrible and in very bad taste.



  8. 8

    I've never thought to comment on one of your posts before… but this one I just can't NOT comment on.

    SERIOUSLY, Perez? You profit off of the misfortune of every celebrity I can think of!



  9. 9

    HOLY CRAP PEREZ…..ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?!?!?!?
    "Profiting from someone's grief" is exactly what you do each and every second of your disgusting life.

    Seriously man, wtf is wrong with you? You are the biggest scumbag on the planet!!

    You make cheaters & abusers look like saints in comparison to your behavior and your douche-bag existence.

    Tick-tick pu$$y……Karma is on its way to you and your loved ones.



  10. 10

    Yeah, lucky the kids didn't see. Just like you were saying how horrible it was that people leaked the barebacking pics of the gay screenwriter but posted the same pics. You're a hypocrytical idiot.



  11. 11

    dude its just the same as you posting the same fucking picture of the kids being sad followed by a detailed bullshit written entry. you are part of the problem, stop being a douche bag. The celebrities that you meet don't like you, you talk shit for a living, and then talk shit on people doing the same thing. you are no better than those people who made and are selling those cards.



  12. 12

    I don't know why anyone would buy something like that.



  13. 13

    hey why dont you you get off your fat ass and get a job



  14. 14

    Perez, why don't you post on your site all the wonderful accomplishments and records that Michael has been breaking?? Oh yeah, I guess I forgot about the fact that you happen to only post so called "bad" news related to Michael.
    *His only album of new material this past decade was just voted as the #1 album of the 2000's "Invincible"
    You know, this being the same album that many swore up and down wasn't a success *rolls eyes*
    *Jackson's THIS IS IT scored the #2 position in the vote for the best album of 2009.
    This all according to Billboard
    and
    *Michael Jackson is set to receive a posthumous Grammy for Lifetime Achievement Award, adding to his previous 15 Grammy Awards.



  15. 15

    Oh Puleeze, Perez WTF is wrong with selling photographs taken at a public event?



  16. 16

    Ummm….not like Perez profitting by putting this picture on his site.



  17. 17

    You are appalled at this. I ask you this piggy Do you make money from this website? The answer is yes you do. So in fact by putting this storey on your site, you also have profited from their grief. So lets be real careful with your moral high ground.

    Re: MJ fan59 – i love how you posted that because it explains that Perez has some shit against Michael idk what it is idk if its because Michael never kissed up to Perez like Madonna or what i mean that whole prezzies award thing was rigged did you really think lady gaga won artist of the year??? i went to some of the older Michael posts before he died and Perez always referred to him "the alleged child molester" which was very disrespectful i would tell Perez what every other Michael fan tells him apologize to his family about that childish post he did on Michael the day he died but then again I'm not because the Jackson family is a successful musical dynasty and they don't care about Perez or who he is .



  19. 19

    This very website was all MJ all the time for three months after he died, even after you mocked him Pumpkinhead. How awful and awkward, indeed. You even used it as a tag line for your wretched book - Was Michael murdered?



  20. 20

    how AWFUL :( :(



  21. 21

    Look at that creepy youngest kid. Any guesses what'll happen to him when he hits 17?



  22. 22

    shut up pig shit like you dont profit off his kids grief



  23. 23

    Ohh the irony ahah



  24. 24

    No disrespect for the family but they sure hide their grief!



  25. 25

    i heart you perez, but seriously this is a case of pot calling the kettle black. just because you don't actually collect proceeds from selling an image on a postcard, you are generating interest on your website (by people like me who are obsessed in an unhealthy way on celebrity-dom) by posting the same image and thus profiting through your sponsors. should you retract your statement?



  26. 26

    Are you out there?



  27. 27

    That's really sick.. But bored of Jacko now..



  28. 28

    The same type of person who would post a pic of that very same image of the Jackson children stricken with sadness on his blog. O_O



  29. 29

    Excuse me!!!! Pot kettle me thinks!! You are profitting as well!!!

    Re: MJ fan59 – I think you forgot to mention the success of This is It the film and the fact that it was nominated for a Critics Choice Award which puts it in line for a possible Academy Award Nomination.
    I would be remiss if I did not mention that the Billboard awards you mentioned were based solely on fan voting (where multiple voting was allowed). The Billboard Sales awards for the 2000s don't even have any MJ album in the top 200 nor did Invincible end up on the Billboard Critics awards. Also he did not have a single in the top 100 of the decade. It is safe to say one method of measuring popularity (voting) beat out another (album/single) buying/playing. This is due in large part to his death you surely must admit.



  31. 31

    its the pot calling the kettle black



  32. 32

    pot calling the kettle

    Re: ap076 – Death or not.. I'm trying to make a point w/ Perez. Alot of people are suing Michael's estate after Michael's passing and Perez chooses to make post regarding that. When Michael accomplishes things/breaks records whether it be after his passing or not, Perez tends to "accidentally" skip over that information. Had their been a poll where fans could vote say for instance "The worst entertainer ever, dead or alive" and the votes went to Michael (though we all know that would never happen) I'm sure Perez would post something about that. My point is that good news regarding Michael or any other members of his family rarely ever see the light of day on this site. And I happen to believe that any votes whether from fans or from the Billboard board of whatever is still an accomplishment. And I didn't forget about This is It's success. Me and a couple others mentioned that in the past and I didn't feel the need to state the obvious again.

    Thats horrible!! Who would try to make money off pictures of them at their fathers memorial?? These kids are 12 years old and younger!! Its so sad that they are trying to make money off of pictures taken of these kids at their most valunerable moment. People are so messed up these days!!! The picture is gorgeous though…his children are beautiful, but Michael kept his children hidden because he knew how weird the paparazzi were (he'd dealt with them since he was like eight) and how creepy people can be and he didn't want weird things like this happening. Michael was an amaing father and as soon as he isn't there to protect his kids the money grubbers pounce and try to exploit them!!



  35. 35

    Re: bitchgetoffme – I know…he does have something against MJ and its obvious. He only takes crap about him and when THIS IS IT made millions of dollars in the first like two days, he called it a failure. Michael didn't bow down to you Perez because your disrespectful and all you did was talk crap about him. Michael Jackson accomplished more in his first 11 years old life than you ever will. I haven't heard you say one good thing about him EVER. Thank goodness the Jacksons don't waste their time reading your blog. Your keep kissing Madonnas and Lady GaGas butts, because you will never see the talent and genius that Michael Jackson was!!



  36. 36

    sad? the daughter looks sad…the son, on the other hand, looks real happy to be on camera



  37. 37

    So how is this any worse than their family manipulating their grief in front of the whole world?

    It isn't. It's not even close. The Jackson family should be ashamed of themselves.



  38. 38

    Re: gkfc78 – Why should they be ashamed of themselves? Maybe because they are human and decided to grieve like any other family would grieve for their a family member? or maybe it's because they decided to share a moment with the people that Michael loved; his fans?? What is it that the family should be ashamed of? In some people's eyes they just can't do anything right… People were saying that they forced Paris to say what she said about her father. Janet and other members of the fam. said Paris said she wanted to say something out of the blue. So I guess they should be ashamed of themselves for letting Paris speak highly about her father?? The members of The Jackson family are human. Meaning if they get cut they will bleed, and if they are sad they will cry. But I guess they should be ashamed of themselves for crying in front of the whole world during a memorial service for their child, father, brother, uncle, and cousin….

    Re: MJ fan59 – I totally see you point friend. Still no post on his 1st place finish in the MTV list which was no popularity contest but picked by critics/staff.
    I watched the Jackson brother's show and found it more real than I expected. Any thoughts?
    Happy Holidays to you and yours.



  45. 45

    Re: ap076 – Yes, I watched the show and loved it. I'm glad they did this. It shows people that they are just like other families and it also gave people a little insight into how much they loved their brother and how losing him was a terrible loss to their family. I also really thought it was cute when the brothers called Janet on her birthday and you could her the excitement in her voice as she was talking to her brothers. For a moment you forgot all about Janet the Star and heard her being totally relaxed talking to her family. I'm also really glad they made it known throughout the show that they started filming this way before Michael's passing. Ok, I think I gave enough of my thoughts about the show lol Happy Holidays to you as well ;)



  46. 46

    WTF?! They're KIDS for goodness sake!! Leave them alone!!!



  47. 47

    Wow….how awkward…..
