Michael Jackson Autopsy Documentary is Â No-Go!! Â This was not an actual autopsy, justÂ officialÂ documents pertaining to Michael’s Â autopsy> Everyone is interested in the facts surrounding his death but it’s just not tasteful.
Two days after Michael Jackson’s estate blasted Discovery Channel for their decision to air a documentary about the autopsy of the late pop star, the cable channel has pulled the program off the schedule. â€œGiven 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,â€ the network said in a statement. The letter to Discovery Communications president and CEO David Zaslav triggered a petition by fans against the special, which was slated to air across Europe in January.
In their letter, the Michael Jackson estate co-executors John Branca and John McClain called the network’s decision to air the documentary “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.” They also objected to a print ad for the special, which they called “debased, sick and insensitive.”
