For me to simply write a request for you to STFU, just wouldn’t be good blog fodder. After seeing your interview earlier this week on ABC, that’s all I found myself saying in my head. Michael Jackson, as the old folks say, isn’t even warm in his grave (well, we actually don’t know if he’s in the grave at all), but you feel the need to spread your vitrol all over the media.
Joe Jackson, Michael Jackson was ‘dead’ way before this tragic incident.
Joe Jackson, you killed Michael Jackson.
You killed the spirit of a kid who enjoyed performing, you made it HIS job and your cash cow. You killed his self-esteem by teasing him because of something (genes) he obviously inherited from you and Katherine. You killed any possibility of Michael Jackson ever having the self-esteem that anyone of his caliber should have had. Mentally, Michael Jackson died, even before he had a chance to live his life the way he deserved to live it. He lived the life you wanted him to live. He lived the life that lined your pockets.
Sure, if it wasn’t for you & Katherine, generations would never have been fortunate enough to see the Greatest Entertainer of The World perform. Thriller, Beat, Bad, would probably have never happened. But because of you, I truly find it hard to believe that Michael Jackson recognized how beautiful on the outside he was, as he was on the inside.
Joe Jackson, we all know the stories behind the beatings & abuse. As much as you want to call it discipline, it was anything but that. Fuck a statute of limitations, I wish there was a way you could be tried for the child abuse that occurred 40 years ago. You took a boy genius and broke his soul. You made him think that if he changed his nose, chin and whatever else you ridiculed him about, that he would be accepted even more. Sometimes I don’t know what’s worse, mental abuse or physical abuse. Considering you dished out both to your own child(ren), I can’t help to think, that you’re the reason he’s dead.
Joe Jackson, even in his death, you’re still making money off of Michael Jackson’s name. Will that $200k go to any of the charities Michael raised so much money for? Will Michael’s children see one brown penny of that money? Or will it just go towards your poker table in Las Vegas?
I pray that you’re kept far away from Paris, Blanket & Prince. Hopefully you’ll take the $200k you’ve pocketed and make your way back to Vegas. If I have to see you butcher the English language and your son’s legacy on tv one more time, I think I’m going to scream.
So in closing, Joe Jackson for the sake of the rest of the Jackson family, including Michael’s children, just STFU.
