MJ Fans: Oprah's Molestation Show Is No 'Coincidence'

11/3/2010 8:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

An official MJ fan group ain't buying Oprah's "purely coincidental" excuse -- telling us, they are "angry and disappointed" that she's airing her interview with MJ's kids days after a special on child molestation.

A rep for the Official Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California tells TMZ, “We are both angry and disappointed in Oprah’s constant need to reference child molestation shows prior to airing Michael Jackson related episodes.  Her tone seems to speak volumes.”

Oprah called the whole thing "purely coincidental" ... but MJ fans aren't convinced. The rep adds, “How can something so obvious be a coincidence?"

As we previously reported, Oprah's big interview with Michael Jackson's children is scheduled to air next Monday -- three days after Friday's big show ... entitled "200 Adult Men Who Were Molested Come Forward."

Michael Jackson was PROVEN innocent. Even the FBI files showed that Michael was INNOCENT. Everyone that knew Michael said he was innocent including Donald Trump, Lisa Marie Presley, Brook Shields, Liza Manelli, Elizabeth Taylor, Kenny Ortega, his body guards, his staff, members of his band, and on and on. Oprah is hateful and I cannot for the life of me figure out why Michael's mother would allow this interview. I can only assume Joseph pushed her into it. Anything to further his "I didn't abuse Michael" agenda. Come to think of it, wasn't it Oprah in the 1993 interview with Michael who called what Michael described as discipline as “beatings” and "abuse". Those were Oprah's words. Let's see how she manipulates his family with it to try to discredit Michael. Oprah will take EVERY opportunity to belittle Michael. She is sly and coy and Michael's family won't see it coming until it's too late. Michael's children are completely innocent in this and probably have no idea what kind of person Oprah is. Michael always asked his mother to refrain from interviews about him. I wish she would listen. I can see no good coming from this with someone like Oprah.

This is an important show in light of Michael Jackson's tragic life. Whether he abused a child as accused (and aquitted) or was obsessed with protecting and nurturing at-risk kid's because he " felt their pain" , it seems fairly obvious that Michael Jackson was likely sexually assaulted as a child. He himself had all the signs of a child whose life path was informed and ultimately devastated by physical, emotional and sexual abuse. If that led him to act out his immense pain on another, which I do not believe he did, or deal with his pain by trying to nurture his child-self through caring for and nurturing neglected kids, the devastation remains the same: It destroyed his life . I believe Michael was a child victim who faced cir***stances that are unimaginable and I honor his strength as a person to have endured it and weathered it for so very , very long. This conversation must be had. Speaking this horrible truth takes the power away from abusers. We must empower our children to speak out and be supported. This is where we start. Oprah, you are brave and visionary. Thank you. You are starting a dialogue that will change the world for good. Hell is shaking right now as this airs !

TOTALLY agree!

I totally believe that too - always have.

Why: JJ forcing them to do skank night clubs, MJ so little loving the stage and so fearing Joe. Joe all up into the skank of it totally exposing him so young to the dangers. Yep. Wouldn't surprise me in the lease that he was sexually abused by someone somewhere in all of those skank dives through all hours of the night. His father was a whore and physical abuser, and proud of it. No stretch of the imagination that he just simply looked the other way if he knew, and if Michael had said anything to him, just told him to stfu and get over it. The price of getting famous, so just go sit down somewhere and DEAL - with the threat of another beating if he didn't.

Yep. No stretch at all. The guy puked just to see him, and or be around him. O in 93 asking about was he a virgin... I'm betting he was thinking "um.. define virgin" virin of my own accord because i love a woman and expressed it physically with her?... or are you talking about when I was sexually abused, and virginity was robbed from me?

Nope. Don't see him ever wanting to bring THAT side of "raised by JJ" up. So yeah, too shy to talk about it! (let alone no body's damn business)... and true too, to gentlemanly to talk about it if sex abuse when little didn't happen, still nobody's damn business.

I definitely believe it happened, though.

Kinda ironic O had Janet and TP on her show, then behind that TP (black male) on alone to talk about his sex abuse perp etc when he was little, then this week all kinds of men coming out about their having been sex abused, (slip ol Jackie in there - still a "reminder of Jacksons" , then first of next week...boom... JJ's FACE all grinning lookin all mafia don.

Anybody seen that interview with JJ where the dude asked him if MJ had a b/f or g/f ... JJ freaked and got way pissed yelled at the guy "MJ's not gay. I HATE GAYS!!" Like MJ wouldn't DARE be gay even if he had wanted to be or were, cuz JJ'd kill im. Even if he'd of been bi.

Read where MJ used to slip under tables when he got a little older in those dives and look under women's dresses. Bet JJ beaming "atta boy"... but as got older was repulsed at his own behavior. Man how conflicted he HAD to have been between all of that and KJ ignorant ass "saint" (don't tell mama it would hurt her to know Joe screws her over all the time). Said in antother interview he KNOWS that Omar is MJs son, all ****y and 'atta boy' thinking to himself just like his old man heheheheh"

Skank pig. Rot in hell. In the meantime... PPB. Yep. SHUDDER.

According to Gayle King (on her radio show) Oprah did NOT "court" or seek out the Jackson's in any way, it was Marc Schaffel (porn producer/KJ biz partner) who CONTACTED the Oprah team.

Oprah & her team were planning an episode on "Teen Heartthrobs" (which coincidentally aired today) and when Oprah was a kid her "crush" was Jackie Jackson. The ONLY call Oprah's team made was to Jackie to see if he would participate.

Days later the Oprah producer assigned to the Jackie Jackson segment received a phone call and faxed letter from Marc Schaffel on behalf of Joe & Katherine Jackson pitching an interview for KJ's book about MJ. THE OPRAH TEAM REJECTED THE PITCH FROM MARC SHAFFEL, JOE, & KJ saying thanks but no thanks.

A few days after Oprah's team turned them down Marc Schaffel contacted them again to say that "Mr. & Mrs. Jackson would 'sweeten' the deal and allow Oprah an 'exclusive' interview w/ the children of MJ if she would agree to feature KJ on her show." According to Gayle, there was MUCH debate between the producers whether or not to do the show. Gayle said the Oprah team is taking great care in the way they are featuring the kids. She said Schaffel made it clear to producers that the Jackson's were willing to leverage the children to promote their biz ventures to other outlets.

I'm not crazy about Oprah, but I do realize in THIS cir***stance it is unfair to blame her. SHAME ON THE JACKSON'S FOR ALLOWING THIS. THIS NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED!!!

When you say dives are you speaking of the black owned and operated night clubs of america during the early dayz of RB/RR 1940-1960...s. In many of the Black night clubs, the patrons would throw coins on the floors after MJ and his brothers performed. MJ and his brothers would run off stage and pick up the coins. Very often the change/coins would roll under the tables. This is the primary reason little MJ and his brothers would look under the women's dresses. Sometimes they saw a little extra.
Of course the world knows that many of the clubs were strip clubs. Joe did not leave and take his boyz home or where ever they were staying. Joe did not make the boyz go sit in the van either. Joe allowed the boyz to watch the entire strip show.
You must remember during this era, it was not common at all for a children's group to be performing professionally let alone in a night club. This is were JOe could find work for his sons. The dives you're talking about are/were apart of what is known as the Chitlin Circuit. The clubs were located from Miami Fl to Cleveland and or from Miami to NYC. Seating in these clubs would ranged from 100-2000 seats. Some of the clubs would be what is called a "hole in the wall". While others were quite nice with dressing rooms.
Every aspiring RB entertainer or everyone of them who had a record deal performed in these very clubs as well.
We all know the laws were different and black artists could not performed at white own clubs. Not until the black music was penetrating white america and the audiences were separated. One show for the whites and one show for the blacks.
If the white arena had a balcony, the black fans were seated there while the white fans had seats on the floor or lower level. Therefore all this attaboy ignorance your spewing is pure BS,Bs,BS.
As MJ got older he dated, and partied at some of the world's most exclusive night clubs. The most famous sex, drugs and no holds barred night club in America was Studio 54. The rich and famous partied at this club. MJ made his choices as a man. It's no secret MJ would have a drink yet he never touched illegal street drugs. NEVER!!!
JOE IS 82 move on. Perhaps in his mind he really believe Omer to be Michael's child. Jermaine went on camera and said he could not deny that Omer was MJ's child and if he wanted a DNA test the family would not oppose it. Also, Omer would receive the same love given to Prince, Paris and Blanket. Well we all know a DNA was not requested by Omer. Omer knows who his father is and its not MJ.
Mrs. Jackson loves her husband. She really does and they will be married forever. Mrs. Jackson is a rare woman and wife. She understands what for better or worse really means. What Joe and Katherine Jackson do in their marriage is their business. I cannot believe anyone cares so much about an 80YO couple's love life. Then again, Branca,McClain,D'Liar, Phillips,Ortega, Murray, Sony,AEG would rather the haters and fans talk about anything other than Michael's murder because they and they alone benefit from it.
Murray killed Michael Jackson!!

MJ is dead. doesn't change the fact that he was a huge pedophile, and got away with it because of his fortune.

The fact is the FBI, LAPD and Children's Services found no evidence of child molestation. There was nothing for Michael to get away with because nothing happened. The children's parents were living in Michael's home because of his fame,fortune and generosity. A greedy money hungry parent known as Evan Chandler only wanted ca$h and he got it from the insurance company.
Evan Chandler never wanted Michael put in jail. Evan Chandler accused Michael of molesting his son, yet made no attempt to kill or physcially harm Michael Jackson. If there was an ounce of truth to Evan's story he would and should have killed MJ and kicked his carcass all over Neverland. The world knows what happend next. Evan Chandler decided to call his attorney.
Evan wanted money and to destroy MJ for rejecting his projects. MJ was innocent and Jordan has admitted that nothing happend. The FBI, LAPD and Children's Services let it go. What's your problem? Oh that's right keep the fans talking about anything other than Michael's murder.

Here I go again: Murray killed Michael Jackson. Murray was paid to kill Michael so that
Sony/AEG/Branca/Mcclain/Phillips/D'Liar/Ortega and a host of culprits could profit and steal MJ's catalog. They are the only people who had everything to gain from Michael's death.
All these loans are nothing but smoke screens. Sony/AEG/Branca and Co own these very finance companines and or sit on the board of directors of the lien holder(s).
They are only paying themselves with these loans that Micheal Jackson never needed. Michael was bombarded with prescription meds he may or maynot have needed entirely. The people he entrusted with his finances are masters at stealing and embezzling from the artist. It's standard practice in the music industry to cheat the artist.
On another note: LMP said on Oprah that MJ confided in her the names of people he believed wanted to steal his catalog but she did not want to say their names. Some concerned friend she is??? She has a confession from MJ but she refuses to go to the police to help resolved his murder. She refuses to call out the names of those Michael believed wanted to hurt him. LMP is a two faced manipulative spinmeister who's only interested in making herself look good or the victim in some way.
If LMP ever loved MJ she would put every last person he confided in her about on BLAST!!! But she wont. She only wants a music career and to publish her auto-lie-ography!!!
I don't like for anyone to be hurt but I'm glad Michael used her for sex and dropped her for good!!!

btw: it was proven that MJ was not a pedophile. It has been proven and it's public knowledge that MJ was a ladies man (many thanks to LMP's confession of course).
Yet all the haters want to talk about is pedophilia.
No hater wants to talk about LMP being used as Michael Jackson's human sex machine for four years after their divorce.

Hmmmmm    

It seems so sad that even after MJ has passed, after being literally destroyed body and soul through false allegations resulting in unbearable public humiliation, and despite being acquitted on all charges with articles stating they really were false accusations and stated to gain money (and defame MJ maybe due to personal disagreements- JMO), that influencial celebrities through episode placement are seemingly cloaking a much sought after first ever worldwide interview with his mother and children as an seemingly subtle means to make a statement with respect to the King of Pop. So sad if that is really the intent.

Oprah ,!!! You would never ever in your entire life had the possibillity to get any kind of interwive with the children if Michael was alive !!! Neither come near them !!! You didnt either bother to make any apolagize for the rued comments you made TO Michael AND about Michael when he was alive ..You never bothered to stand up for your "brother" when he needed your support the most !!! YOU ,The TV "queen " could at lest have used your voice and authority to spread the TRUTH about Michael( YOU KNOW HE WAS INISENT !!!!) instead of running after his beloved children !! YES ,!!! They are only children ,and theyr first real meeting with the TV "dramaqueen" is about theyr father and theyr lifes ..WHY didnt you Oprah ask MICHAEL about this when he still was with us ?? Why NOW ???,,And then you do this STUNT by putting out a show upon this with child molestors and **** !!! Pleas do not PLAY with our intelligense (or yours for that matter ) ..The psycological effect of this is tradgic and for those who do not know all that much about Michael Jackson ,will easely put him on "trial" again !!! Listen to your heart pleas dear Oprah ,You have many followers( me not ,i apoligize for that ) ,but do not try to promote yourself as GOD trying to haunt dissiples ...Do not do this to a child ,for a stupid rate !!Elisabeth Gran Norway
