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."

I saw a news report on drug abuse and the next story was an interview with Tom Hanks. They must be saying he is an addict. What are M.J. fans trying to tell us? Those who protest loud generally have something to hide. Most people would not have made the connection, but his fans brought it to light.

Oprah's doing this on purpose. She can't get past her own molestation as a child without assuming that Michael may have been guilty...which he never was.

She wants attention and higher ratings so people won't give up on her when her show ends. And there's no bigger name than Michael Jackson or his family to help her do it...talk about taking advantage of people for one's own recognition or gain.

Buying her audience cars, flying everyone around...what a sleazy way to keep an audience and ratings, something Michael never had to do.

Michael was the true humanitarian..he didn't do things for people in order to seek attention as Oprah does. He's in the Guinness Book of World Records for his humanitarianism for crying out loud...things that Oprah has never come close to achieving..

I'll be happy when her show ends..

Have another piece of chocolate cake Oprah..

The Jackson family is a disgrace; money is all that they care about rather than respecting Michael Jackson's wishes and beliefs. Katherine Jackson included, although I like to believe she's just naive. Oprah is a disgrace as well. Coincidence? Everything is planned MONTHS in advance, nothing about the lineup is left to chance or coincidence. She did the same thing back during deliberations. And Oprah, no matter how many times you allege that Michael was a lifelong drug addict, the autopsy report of his HOMICIDE says otherwise.

Ironic, isn't it that The Great and Mighty O chooses to exploit the very victims of the worst exploitation possible (molestation), but in a different way...

Winfrey, Ricky Martin is gay? Where's the film at 11. That's supposed a news flash. Ricky Martin gay, over 10 years ago.

Jacksons. Michael Jackson is still dead and Janet Jackson still has her own talent.

First off, the Jackson family didn't have to do this interview at all. We know they did because, save for Janet, they're a bunch publicity whores at their worst. Got that Joseph? With that said, most of Hollywood including Oprah never gave MJ the time of day in the latter years of his life. Again, even Diana Ross wouldn't go around him. We all know that right or wrong Elizabeth Taylor stuck by him through thick and thin. As far as his "friends" go, she was the only one who could attend his funeral with her head held high. All of those people at the Staples Center that sad day are the same people who never would have accepted an incoming call from MJ or be seen in public with him. Well he's gone, his music will always live on and whether he did anything wrong or not, most of all he was found NOT GUILTY BY A COURT OF HIS PEERS. That's all society can expect. The jury said "not guilty" to all charges. Again, other than Janet, none of those Jacksons work or do anything of any significance in terms of entertainment. They all just waited for Michael to bring home the bacon. Got that Joseph? You know all too well you're the worst offender of them all. A true living, breathing, walking, rare best. Your own son said so all too often.

Every emotion inside me wants to slam Oprah; because, I knew MJ and I know for a fact it would not be his wish nor consent for Oprah to sit down nor be anywhere near his children.

Here is what I think. Oprah was molested as a child. Oprah cannot let go of it nor has she finished healing from it. So once she has convinced herself, whether it is true or not, she will do all she can to condemn the child "molester", even if that person is in fact, such as Michael, totally innocent. While there may be other reasons behind her sticking to the Jackson's like glue; ratings, popular show guests requested, etc. If something could be hurtful to someone, especially a child, then don't do it.

She will tell you first hand, the violated child, the molested child becomes the violator and then in turn the molester down the line, more times than not on the average. That was not the case with MJ; he never let anything that others did to him turn him nor his actions into them, because it would give them the power.

Oprah, if she goes through with airing the interview with his children; most likely she will--then she will molest his children by being stubborn and going forward. She will be unintentionally using his children to work out her stuff, whether she has anything against MJ or her past or the people that hurt her in her past.

MJ's babies are not even 14 and Blanket is eight years old. The children have led an isolated existence before MJ's death. It's one thing to enroll them in school; its another for Oprah to place the grieving Jackson family in a corner where they feel the need to defend MJ on her show. I think they may have not realized that Oprah can turn things around to her advantage. I do not blame MJ's family at all. MJ knew himself that he was the glue that held everyone and everything concerning the Jackson's together. Their pain must be like a bottomless pit. Myself, when MJ died, I didn't know where to place what had happened, the grief as if it was a box that didn't fit in any room, on any table and so holding it was all I could do. I could not imagine life without him, the world without his childlike presence in it and his genius in the innovation of music. It was and has been agonizing.

Oprah, please consider MJ's wishes and his children, if you air the show, then definitely, you will have become the molester. MJ was innocent totally innocent. Please stop attacking him and his memory. You lost out, you had the privilege of interviewing him and you missed out on getting to know a wonderful, intelligent, sweet, kind human being. Get over your being molested in your past so that it does not cloud your judgment about people, about MJ.
I want to believe that you are not a bad person, that you will allow him peace, he was innocent and is innocent. You, along with Lisa Marie made him cry. MJ cried about the environment, starving children, he never was made to cry by adults, outside his Father. You and Lisa Marie made him cry. MJ was not vitiligo; MJ was MJ and MJ was a beautiful and pure minded/hearted human being, human being; not a molester. Stop please, stop. Thank you.

let's see, child molesters on Friday and Michael's kids on Monday. It is not even in the SAME WEEK. I don't remember WHEN I DO WATCH THESE TYPE OF SHOWS, OPRAH, ELLEN, ETC. (which is not that often) what was on THE DAY BEFORE! YES, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO PUT MOLESTER AND MICHAEL JACKSON together NOW! and why? BECAUSE MJ FANS are making SUCH A BIG DEAL ABOUT IT! Most people do not watch daytime TV, therefore, most people DO NOT WATCH OPRAH. But, I bet alot are NOW GOING TO TIVO IT, thanks to MJ fan base. IDIOTIC MORONS. Do people not realize the more noise you make, the more attention you bring to a subject, AND IT NORMALLY DOES NOT WORK OUT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE? STUPID STUPID PEOPLE. Most people do not go about thinking about MJ on a daily basis or think about child molester in association with him, at least not anymore, HE IS DEAD. But go ahead, keep bring up the subject and more and more people will start talking about him and the allegations that surrounded him.

Rabid, delusional MJ fans need to get a grip. MJ had problems just like everyone else in the world and he was not a saint. He likely was a pedophile in mind, if not practice. Perceived insults to his memory are completely overblown. It never ceases to amaze me that these people get so up in arms over nothing. Grow up.

I agree, and some of the outpourings from fans on here is embarassing.

I am a fan and don't believe the accusations, however, these over zealous so called fans just make me cringe. He would too, he would be the first to admit he was no saint.

Once again TMZ you have managed to post a terrible photo of Michael. There are thousands of nice photos of Michael out there - even ones from his later years that give a more accurate representation of his appearance. You seem to chose photos that are less than flattering. You don't do that with other celebrities - don't do it with Michael. He had enough people belittling him in life - don't do it to him in death!
