michael jackson autopsy special drama

Wow, Discovery Channel! First, you had all that Deadliest Catch drama back in September, and now you're thinking of airing a special that re-enacts Michael Jackson's autopsy?

Yikes! And 9,000 MJ fans aren't the only ones who are pissed!

Here's what co-executors of Michael's estate, John Branca and John McClain, had to say about the special in a letter sent to Discovery's CEO/President David Zaslav:

"Your decision to even schedule this program is in shockingly bad taste, insensitive to Michael's family and appears motivated solely by your blind desire to exploit Michael's death, while cynically attempting to dupe the public into believing this show will have serious medical value.

We were especially outraged when a sickening print advertisement for the program appeared making light of Michael's death by depicting a corpse sprawled on a steel gurney covered by a sheet with a hand sticking out wearing Michael's signature glove."

Over 9,000 Michael fans have signed an online petition to keep this show from airing. Discovery has yet to comment on it.

Do U think Discovery should air the special?

    Is it really that big of a deal. If you don't like it don't watch it!! there are plenty of other channels and shows to watch. I bet people will watch it.

    Why is "Michael's" dick hard in this pic? I'm just pointing out the obvious. Well, maybe its not hard…he is black so….

    I am so against it. If they air it I will NOT watch it that's for sure.
    Even in death, people still want to use Michael for financial gain.

    The Discovery channel used to be one of my favorite channels. They have really gone down hill in the past few years. Anything for money. Leave the Jacksons alone. At least wait until the kids are grown up before you make up some Hollywood crap about how their father died. Michael did some great work , lets remember him for that.

    It would be nice if someone would put up a link to the petition. I'll sign it.

    I'm getting a very bad feeling about this petition. Someone is making money for every signature it gets. I will be THOROUGHLY disgusted if it turns out the estate is making money off this.



  12. 12

    No of course not. But hey I issued a media decency pledge asking mainstream media to WHEN POSSIBLE not show people dying, women crying, bleeding corpses, etc. Want to know how many signed it? 0.

    I WOULD LOVE TO WATCH IT! AS IM SURE ALOT OF PEOPLE WOULD AS MICHEAL IS A MYSTERY… BESIDES HOW IS THIS ANY DIFFERENT THAN HIS FAMILY EXPLOITING HIM IN THE AFTERLIFE WITH A BOOK AND AN ALBUM THAT PEOPLE ARE RUMORING TO BE A FAKE. THAT IS OKAY I GUESS? WHY SHOULD THIS BE ANY DIFFERENT
