MJ Fans -- Dying to Clean Up Tomb Graffiti

7/14/2010 8:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An MJ fan club is on a desperate mission to clean up the recent graffiti onslaught outside the King of Pop's tomb -- claiming a few bad apples could spoil everything for MJ's non-vandal followers.

The Official Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California
have extended an olive branch to Forest Lawn Cemetery -- where MJ is buried -- offering to clean up the recent wave of hidden vandalism outside the singer's tomb ... before the cemetery decides to ban MJ fans altogether.

A rep for the group -- which organizes a monthly pilgrimage to MJ's burial place -- tells TMZ, they want to "fix this mess" so FLC doesn't associate MJ's upstanding fans with a bunch of sharpie-wielding hoodlums.

As TMZ first reported, Forest Lawn is currently on red alert over the illegal doodles -- hunting down the artists responsible ... and threatening to ban any potential copycats for life.

No word if Forest Lawn will take the fan group up on their offer.

Cher,
I cannot remember where I saw that Cher (of Sonny & Cher fame) said that Jackson should have his children taken away, but I remember being absolutely floored when I read it years ago, and I never forgot it. I googled "cher says michael jackson should have children taken away" and a lot of stuff came up. Here's one link:

http://www.michaeljackson.com/ca/node/773722

The following is one of several postings about the matter on the link above. Note that this posting itself contains a link to what she actually said, and then that leads to another link, from which I copied this:

Cher on Jacko: He’s ‘Nuts’
Cher is no longer a Michael Jackson fan. “I don’t really care what he does to his face. He could just erase it as far as I’m concerned,” Cher told TV Guide for its April 5 issue. “But I don’t like him anymore. And it’s because of his children. I cannot imagine putting my children through what he put his children through,” Cher says. The full story at cnn.com has since been removed.

HERE'S THE POSTING:

Re: Where is Wacko Cher?
In response to Junky's post at 9:31 about the bad things Cher said about Michael, please refer to this link from late fall 2002. She continued in the same tone even after his death, though like so many other fake people in that industry, she made specific positive statements about his work (as a way to avoid personal comments that she'd previously made):

http://popdirt.com/cher-has-had-it-with-michael-jackson/11157/

HERE'S WHAT THE ABOVE LINK LEADS TO:
Cher Has Had It With Michael Jackson
Cher has blasted Michael Jackson over his baby dangling incident. She told Entertainment Tonight from the Billboard Music Awards: “You know what, I don’t have a nice thing to say about him. He and I were friends when he was little. I watched him grow up and all that, but, you know, you dangle a baby over a balcony, that’s it for me. … If it was up to me, he wouldn’t have those babies now. It was the most unbelievable thing I’ve ever seen a parent do.”

HERE'S THE REST OF THE POSTING:
Also, let me say this: Just because OTHERS say or do something wrong against another (in this case, my beloved Michael and the biggest most successful in the entertainment industry) does NOT make it okay or absolve ONE from saying or doing the same thing. I do not dislike Cher, but I certainly do not respect her and feel that she, of ALL people, should have had more compassion and understanding for Michael in 2002 when she began her negative statements, and in general.
END OF POSTING

What is ironic about all this is that Michael's children (at least up until a year ago) are intelligent, loving, well-mannered, and happy. Contrast that with Cher's children (Chastity, Elijah Blue), and it is clear to the entire world who provided better parenting.

Hello everyone. I sendintg this note out to you to inform you that I will be signing off of this site. I somehow managed to find that other site on TMZ about Jermaine saying that Dr. Murray should drop dead. But all of these sites are beginning to confuse the devil out of me, so I decided that I would try to find that site that Siggis had mentioned - the Michael Jackson Board on TMZ and just stay on the one. Hope I find it!

Anyway, if I don't find it and end up loosing all of you, I would like all of you to know that I enjoyed communicating with you about MJ issues, and hearing your perpectives, opinions and the like. Its been so much fun, and such a pleasure to have had the opportunity to participate in the discussions. I wish all of you the very best. Stay well & God Bless all of you!

Martin Bashir accepts new job at MSNBC. “He fits in with what MSNBC wants to be: he’s smart, original, and thoughtful. I couldn’t be happier to bring someone of his caliber to the network.” - MSNBC President Phil Griffin

Seriously??? I guess MSNBC wants to be trash that specializes in deceptive reporting with the intent of destroying people's lives....
