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."

Oprah could cancel the child molestation show. It is not a mistake. Really don't like her. Many people angry and fed up with Oprah. She treated Michael was great disrespect over the years and now the Jackson's, Lisa Marie and Michael's kids allowed her to interview them. Big mistake. Ban Oprah. Alot of people are disappointed with her. Don't trust her and seldom watch her show anymore. Read the blog comments on her website about Michael Jackson and find out how many people are fed up with her. Oprah I'm sick of your hypocrisy.

Jordy never recanted his story. That is a false internet rumor.

His father committed suicide - that much is true. He apparently had some type of painful serious disease. But no one knows for sure why he did it. Evan was no angel by any means. But that doesn't mean MJ didn't molest Jordy.

My favorite South Park epi "Mr. Jefferson" should be seen by everyone defending Michael Jackson, it concisely states what was so wrong about M.J.'s behavior, even if he never molested anyone. Why do so many people defend Michael Jackson so much? Who cares?

I think its time for everyone to get over it.. he passed away....at least his music still lives on..if you want to cry about something make it be worth while, like why has inflation gone up so high in the past ten years, but minimum wage has not, bottom line if you are here crying about people said bad things about someone who is dead...you are all wrong...hes dead what can you change??

I'm not what you call a Michael Jackson fan, but I did like him and I certainly don't believe he ever hurt anyone in any way. I also like Oprah but would not consider myself a fan of hers either. I think you MJ fans are being way too sensitive. I would have never noticed if you hadn't brought it up. Oprah is not one to mince words. If she had something to say, she would say it.

Oprah has one season remaining. She has probably already planned all her show topics, down to the very last day. She was molested when she was young and has done many shows about children being molested. 200 men coming forward sounds like it might be about priests molesting boys, not an old story about Michael Jackson getting away with molesting boys. If she were going to insult MJ and his children, she would interview boys who claimed MJ molested them... or ask his children what it was like being raised by a pedophile... or ask them if their father ever molested them. She has power and influence, and people respect her, which is exactly why his children are being interviewed by her.

I believe this is the last year for Oprah's show, so she wants to go out with a bang... returning to her roots of sensationalism

NOT ONLY DID HE COMMITTED SUICIDE BUT HIS SON FILED A REQUEST FOR A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST HIS FATHER ON AUGUST 5, 2005.

THE REASON FOR THE ORDER WAS THAT EVAN CHANDLER, FORMERLY A DENTIST AND AN ASPIRING SCREENWRITER, HAD ALLEGEDLY HIT JORDAN OVER THE HEAD FROM BEHIND WITH A TWELVE AND A HALF POUND WEIGHT. HE'D ALSO ALLEGEDLY SPRAYED HIM IN THE FACE WITH MACE AND TRIED TO CHOKE HIM.

What I find intersting is that Katherine allowed them to be on any TV show. Michael spent years hiding them and protecting them. Its one thing to have them going to school, but letting them on a show like Oprah's is questionable.

I agree 100%... When it comes to the exploitation of MJ's kids in the media and the direct disregard for MJ's wish that they be sheltered from the spotlight THE JACKSON'S ARE TO BLAME, not Oprah or any other media outlet. I am truly terrified for these kids.

Personally I find the fact that Oprah and the childrens guardians are doing the interview exploitive and far more offensive then what show airs before it. The show on abuse is a continuation of her Tyler Perry interview and has nothing to do with MJ.
