    I'm really not interested in social media :-) I once had a Facebook account but I realized I was only using it to lurk on other people's profiles and I hated doing that, so I signed out.
    And this is ok; but a least you had the FAIRNESS to come here to want to seek what is true.

    Of course, I grew up with MJ, he was my idol as a teenager. I have a very high interest in him as an artist. When I got into my college years I kind of stopped listening to him after I discovered other artists but I've come full circle and I'm very very much into MJ's music again like it was when I was a kid. My interest in his music has only grew stronger the last 2 or 3 years.

    Also, when looking at MJ's case, ALWAYS ask yourself, "what does people have to gain by defending him on a serious accusation"? We have NOTHING TO GAIN. Then ask yourself, what does people have to gain by wanting to paint him guilty and twisting facts? $$$$$$$$$$$$. Enuf said

    Exactly. all we gaining here is fight for innocent black man life and making his legacy live on. this what i'm gaining from this. us fans been doing it since 1993 and since Michael was alive.

    though we all need to face the fact Michael has haters. he will forever have haters. just like the rest of us.

    The comment section always been a problem on youtube etc. you can either disabled comments or delete comments. i try not look at the comment section on any social media because half of the time they bad. i think we need to realize that this is the internet. anyone can say and do whatever they want through outside internet i can bet you that somethings people say in the comments they won't say outside the internet.

    Thank you, that's very kind!

    The only thing that shocked me to my core about MJ, was reading the Jackson 5's tour schedules, and knowing from 'Moonwalker' etc that Michael's performing history had started much earlier than the tours, with the 'Chitlin circuit' and talent shows. He lived most of his life from a young age 'in front of other people', and his space at Neverland was no different. He invited lots of people there, including the local doctor (who wrote a book about his friendship with MJ) and that doctor confirmed that he would chat to MJ (or watch films) in his bedroom, sitting on his bed. It was MJ's normal.

    Elizabeth Taylor was the same- she invited guests who were friends to visit her in her bedroom. She also performed from a young age, staying away from home, and continued living in hotels during her marriages eg to Richard Burton.

    They are also always the same people. Report, block, and move on. Don’t comment on the haters, just leave a positive comment on the actual content.
    Your right about this. they call trolls.

    you're kind of right about that. through those jokes really hurt it Michael and put Michael through a lot.

    It's understandable to be upset that he got screwed over. No one deserves that. My point is just that it all needs to be put into the proper perspective. Michael had personal responsibility, just like every other mentally competent person on the planet. He repeatedly made bad choices and he got very bad results. He was a key player in his own destruction and his family and fans were left with the task of endlessly trying to pick up the pieces. We can feel bad about things like LN, but we should also keep in mind the fact that it wouldn't have happened in the first place if Michael hadn't acted the way he did. He had a pattern of behaviour leading all the way to his death that seems to indicate he thought he could do whatever he wanted, with no regard for the consequences. Well no one is above consequences, no matter how famous they are.

The Chandler incident should have been the end of all that; he certainly knew what people thought of his behaviour at that point and how vulnerable he was, but he chose to continue. He made that choice.
    I agree with you with this. after the first accident he should of been more caution on what he was doing. Michael was very naive. he should of been more careful who he surround himself with. through the whole thing isn't his fault. people made up stories about him being a pedo for money because they knew it would get them money. it's really sad they did that to him. he's not the only one. they do this a lot with other people as well for money. like Michael always said burn the tabloids.

    Agreed. Michael was a home body. he didn't really like being in public only if he really had to. let's not forget fans etc always mobbing him and following him everywhere he went. he liked it a lot of space.

    Michael was always a easy target. poor man. may he r.i.p. i hope he's happy now.

    Same. my grandmother was the same way. of course they lied about Michael for that money. there even facts say they did. if Michael wasn't rich and famous half of those people wouldn't have the care about Michael. that's why they use him. i wish it stop. it's getting old and ridiculous and they know it.

    I agree with this.

    There's a couple of users here that keep telling me what I should do, it's arrogant. Take a break, stop listening to the radio etc. As if I'm not able to think straight and be rational. I'm perfectly capable myself to decide what to do or don't.
