Take a sigh of relief, MJ fans - your voices have been heard.
Yesterday, it was announced that the Discovery Channel had plans to run a special in the UK featuring a reenactment of Michael Jackson's autopsy. Plans for the special have now been scrapped, due to the backlash from fans and pleas from the Jackson estate.
A rep from the network released a statement to sources confirming the decesion, stating:
"Given the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week, and at the request of Michael Jackson's estate, the scheduled broadcast of the medical documentary related to Michael Jackson's official autopsy has been postponed indefinitely."
It's for the best. The whole thing was in poor taste and we can only imagine the kind of pain it would have inflicted on his family.
Just let the man rest in peace already.
