MJ Auction -- Distasteful or Good Business?

6/11/2010 4:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Randy Jackson has been fighting like crazy to stop a flood of Michael Jackson memorabilia from hitting the auction block on the anniversary of MJ's death -- but the auction house is going full steam ahead.

MJ Auction
Randy has been on Twitter attack, calling the auction at  Planet Hollywood in Vegas "distasteful."

Darren Julien from Julien's Auctions claims it's pure coincidence the auction falls on June 25  -- "We have the same summer auction [of pop star memorabilia] at the same time every year."

Julien says the auction date can't be moved.  So there.

I wonder if these items were actually MJ's or are they using his name.

Brian Oxman said Michael was furious at the thought of his memorabilia being sold in an auction.

The sale is in poor taste;it is an example of greed--the motive being make as much money possible while Michael is a newsworthy subject.

Randy also implied Michael stopped the auction in the past of items he wouldn't want to part with and threw his mother under the bus saying only she could stop it. If you look up the items in the catalogue, firstly, it isn't ONLY Michael Jackson memorabilia being sold, but Jackson 5 items, Elvis items, Beatles items, etc. because it is a music icon auction. Secondly, Randy's comment lead fans to believe it was indeed the auction of items Michael DID stop in the past by his tweets, but as it turns out it is not. He setting the fans (who refuse to research themselves) up to go after Julien's auctions. Michael Jackson auction items include his doodles, the test art from his artist (not the originals), communications, autographed personal items given to others, the furniture he had on order for his O2 tour that he never received due to his passing, etc. How could Michael have ever implied he didn't want to part with stuff already given to others and furniture he didn't even technically have yet? Sounds to me like maybe Randy thought he'd use the fans to get back at family who are auctioning off J5 stuff that maybe did not involve him.

He looks like a frail old woman in that picture. At least his picture can't be taken anymore.

They plan to open a museum in Michael Jackson's memory in Gary, Indiana. If they are selling everything the singer owned on auction, they will have nothing left to put on display at that museum.

Not everything in this world pertains to Michael Jackson. So it coincides with the "anniversary" of his death. The world did not stop because some freak died. Next they freakfans will want a national holiday on that day! Forget it, he was a pedophile and a freak! Now go away people. Let the rest of us live........in peace.

@Chico I agree, i remember this auction was attempting to take place last year before mj died and he said they werent supposed to auction his things. They had an agreement to hold his belongings as he was to purchase a house, wich was the reason for the tour..to get the new house. Julians is dirt

OK, Randy...what part of ["Michael Jackson's brothers have been left out of the will"] do you not understand? I know, your pissed because all the money is going to three white kids that have zero amount of Jackson DNA.

These belongings being sold at Auction should belong to Micahels Children..no one else!! And to hold the auctions on the day of the 1 yr anniversary of his supposed death is dispicable!! GREED is all this is, and to YOU Bacqui..yes you..Thise things DO NOT BELONG TO JOE JACKSON..Michael worked his ass off for all of it, and gave til he could not give anymore..so you need to rethink that comment!! HIS CHILDREN should have possesion of these things..and no one else!!!
