Al Sharpton -- Pray for Jacko

6/25/2009 7:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Al SharptonTMZ just received the following statement from Al Sharpton:

"A friend of Michael's for the last 35 years, I call on people around the world to pray for him and his family in the hour.

I have known Michael since we were both teens, worked with him, marched for him, hosted him at our House of Justice headquarters in New York, and we joined together to eulogize our mutual idol, James Brown.

I have known him at his high moments and his low moments and I know he would want us to pray for his family

Seriously, you people at TMZ are disgusting! Stop calling him Jacko, he feed you long enough, you parasites, the least you can do on the day of his passing is to SHOW SOME RESPECT!

Al says pray for him. Hmmm, I'm thinking it's a couple hours too late, isn't it? Pray for the messed kids that visited that visited his neveragain ranch.

OK, TMZ, Everyone KNOWS that your writers have NO standards of personal integrity or decency but could you at least PRETEND like you do and show MICHAEL JACKSON, the greatest entertainer the world has ever known, some respect and finally STOP REFERRING TO HIM AS JACKO????? This type of ugliness is just inexcusable. You writers and editors, please know that evertyhing you do WILL find it's way right back to YOU.
