Fans of the King of Pop are up in arms about a gruesome documentray that the Discovery Channel is planning to air in January, titled Michael Jackson’s Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson.
The Michael Jackson community is rallying together to get the network’s bosses to reconsider showing the documentary, which will show a re-enactment of Michael’s autopsy based on court documents and witnesses, “using an anatomically correct synthetic cadaver”. They call it “an affront to human dignity,” and go on to say: “This type of sensational and unscrupulous reporting can only cause harm,” TMZ reports.
The petition reads: “We ask the directors of the Discovery Channel programming to proceed with the outright cancellation of this indecent documentary.”
So far almost 1,500 signatures have been collected by fans. If you think airing this documentary is a disrespectful move, you can also get involved by writing to the Discovery Channel. Please click here.
