Michael Jackson' Fans Launch Petition to Halt His 'Indecent Documentary'
Michael Jackson fans have launched a petition in a bid to stop the broadcast of a gruesome TV show featuring a re-enactment of the late star's autopsy. The Discovery Channel's controversial program "Michael Jackson's Autopsy" is said to be based on the official coroner's report and court documents taken after the star's tragic passing back in 2009.
The show will follow a pathologist as he performs a full autopsy on a synthetic cadaver and exposes the "medical myths that surrounded Jackson throughout his troubled life - his drug addiction, his vitiligo and other disorders". And the plans have infuriated the Thriller hitmaker's loyal fans, who have launched a petition in a bid to stop the show from airing.
Members of two Jackson campaign groups, MJ Justice Project and MJ Children, have united to urge other devotees to contact bosses at the Discovery Channel to voice their displeasure about the show. The petition states, "We ask the directors of the Discovery Channel programming to proceed with the outright cancellation of this indecent documentary."
"Michael Jackson's Autopsy" is due to air in the U.K. on January 13, according to TMZ.com.
