    The GOAT left us










    I'll never forget how shocked I was to hear the news. It still doesn't feel like he's gone.

    I'll always remember this day. RIP to the GOAT

    It's the first major event I "watched" on Twitter and it also showed me how legit TMZ was because they were the first to report it

    He gets a pass because all of the original accusers recanted their stories, saying that their families put them up to the deed in order to get paid.

    Michael Jackson wasn't a normal person, by any means. His entire life he was forced to work, act, and behave like an adult. My family is originally from Gary, and anyone with ties there can tell you about the things their family experienced, from poverty to violence. By his teenage years, Michael Jackson had been subject to so much abuse that its honestly a miracle he was able to function in society, and what little function he managed was DESTROYED by the greed of a few individuals.

    To label him a child molestor and nothing else isn't only inaccurate, its downright shameful. He did everything he could to make sense of the world and leave it a better place than when he came into it. And its sad that to this day, people are still trying to suck as much life from his legacy as they can.

    Long live the King.

    Rest in Peace.

    I do think Mike did some suspect stuff, like laying in a bed full of kids, but I honestly think his intentions wasn't in a sexual molestation form.

    Like he treated them as teddy bears.

    He just wanted to give kids the experience he didn't have.

    He was defiantly off in the head tho.

    And what kind of parent would send their kids to spend the night, unsupervised at a grown mans house? :x

    The accusers recantations were a hoax.


    Why do people still believe MJ's accusers said they they lied about the allegations ? ... Please show me a single verifiable news source that can confirm.

    No body can provide a verifiable news source because it does not exist. I've read the same thing so many times and even looked up many of these links. They lead to small time blogs and tabloids "reporting on reports". The mainstream press would have reported this story if there was even an ounce of fact in it, but you will not find it anywhere on CNN, NY Times, even TMZ.

    This was literally the first result, and look, its even from one of the sources that you named.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/09/world/americas/09iht-jackson.html

    I never said he was innocent of all wrongdoing. There is certainly something wrong with an adult giving children alcohol and sleeping in the same bed with them. What I'm saying is that its wrong to demonize him for things that he may have thought of as normal, especially considering his childhood and the disgusting things he was subjected and conditioned to. Without a doubt, the accusers lied about aspects of the story. How far those lies go is up for you to decide. That's not to say that MJ was a great or even decent person. But its wrong to discredit his legacy and the good he did for the world without also acknowledging the good with the bad.

    I'm done with this topic. Some of y'all will do anything to discredit a b...let me stop.

    RIP.

    Bruh....That article is an account from the trial in 2005 and thats not the accuser, its his brother. He also didnt recant anything, he said he was nervous and some of the details got mixed up. The article also clearly states accounts of MJ giving wine and vodka to childeren.
