Michael Jackson Urban Myths Pulled Off Air


Earlier this week Michael Jackson fans were outraged after UK network Sky TV released a trailer for Urban Myths starring white actor Joseph Fiennes as the King of Pop Michael Jackson [click here if you missed that].

After furious backlash the network has decided not to air the program...

In a statement released yesterday Sky explains their decision.
"We have taken the decision not to broadcast Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon, a half hour episode from the Sky Arts Urban Myths series, in light of the concerns expressed by Michael Jackson's immediate family."
"We set out to take a light-hearted look at reportedly true events and never intended to cause any offense."
"Joseph Fiennes fully supports our decision."

They've been spoofing Michael for years even while he was alive! So what Michael was black but he looked white, pale and ghoulish!

When I first seen that pic above I said "This most be a joke...right?" Turns out it was and spuffing dead people is not new, it has been going on for ages maybe Paris didn't realize that while she was growing up in Never Land.

I'm glad Paris spoke out. But why were his black family members silent?
