MJ Fan Group Gunning to Shut Down Vault Website

11/7/2010 5:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A group of Michael Jackson fans have banded together and fired off a scathing letter to the people behind JacksonSecretVault.com -- calling for the site to stop the "exploitation of Michael Jackson, his grieving mother, his beloved children and his legacy."

1107_JACKSON_LAUNCH_getty_ex
The letter contains a laundry list of complaints against the site, among their objections:

-- The exploitation of Michael’s elderly mother in the marketing, selling and merchandising from the Jackson Vault.

-- The use and brokering of Michael Jackson’s children to promote events, merchandise and interviews.

-- The use of the demeaning term, “Jacko” in the Jackson Vault website and press release. A degrading term that Michael himself, spoke openly against and thought was insulting.

This has all come about because of the release of a song on JacksonSecretVault.com -- which was first billed as a new song that had the blessing of Katherine Jackson ... but was later determined to be neither.

Well done fans!!!
Sometimes I think Michael's fans are the only ones that really cared about Michael. Gosh, even his own family can't be trusted!!

Michael's beloved legacy. Where to start? How about millions of dollars paid out to families of kids that MJ molested. I'm always amazed at the cretins who are so protective of this guy. He was gross. He used his celebrity and power to entice kids, and molest them. He use his celebrity and financial resources to evade punishment that 99 % of the public would have received. His money grubbing family conned the city of L.A. into paying for his memorial service at a time when city workers, cops, schools and firefighters were in financial jeopardy. But I guess honoring this sexual predator and overall creep is what's important.

I'm always amazed that anyone, even the CRETINS could possibly think Michael Jackson was a molester. I mean, come on - how can you be so stupid as to think that in his 50 years, there were only 2 dumb ass families (out of the thousands around him) to go so far as too put stigma on themselves and their freaky kids to claim shi t to get money from Michael. Makes me wonder what these freaks have done or had done to them to constantly think this way!

Take a look in the mirror - THAT'S what a molester looks like!

I'm not part of that action, but I dislike the site deeply. It's a commercial site where the family and odd, shady "partners" sell off memorabilia making money of a dead family member. It's in bad taste to say the least. I guess those "partners" talked Katherine into it to make money for themselves, but I can't fathom why on earth she agreed.

MJ was surrounded by this type of people, now they've found new pastures. The site should be shut down or all merchandise taken away immediately. It's a disgrace.

It is kind of sad that Michael Jackson is actually more famous now than when he was alive. I think the last time I actually heard this much about him (before death) was during his alleged child molestation trials. Just let the man rest in peace. His family and fans should just stop causing so much fuss over how much money his songs are worth and just play it. All of this fuss over the songs and remakes vs never before released is just making his fans and family sound like a bunch of fame whores. (Disclaimer: I am not in anyway saying that MJ's fans and family are fame whores I am just stating the fact that by constantly causing an uproar in the public eye is making them APPEAR to be.)

I DON'T SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH HOW THE LETTER IS WRITTEN.

IT'S TO THE POINT!!!

MJ FANS ARE THE FOUNDATION OF HIS MUSIC LEGACY.

YES, PEOPLE KNOW THAT MJ HAVE A STRONG FAN BASE WORLD WIDE AND THERE ARE UNSAVORY PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO EXPLOIT THEM IN EVERY WHICH WAY.

SINCE MJ DEATH, HIS FAMILY HAVE ABSOLUTELY BEHAVED IN A GREEDY, SHADY, AND SHAMEFUL WAY BY TRYING TO PROFIT OFF OF THEIR SON AND BROTHER.

MJ FAMILY CLAIMED TO WANT TO PRESERVE HIS MUSICAL LEGACY BUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING IS DESTROYING IT WITH THEIR UNCOUTH BS!!!!!

I WILL THROW MY SUPPORT BEHIND MJ FANS WHO ONLY WANT WHAT IS BEST FOR MRS. JACKSON, MJ3 AND THE CHARITIES OUTLINED IN HIS WILL.

THE FANS KNOW MJ MUSIC AND THEY ARE TIRED OF PEOPLE SUCH AS MANN AND PAPA JOE TRYING TO EXPLOIT AND STEAL FROM MJ3!!!!

MJ FANS ARE THE ONE DEDICATING THEMSELVES IN PRESERVING HIS MUSICAL LEGACY.

LONG LIVE THE KING OF "ALL" MUSIC, MICHAEL JOSEPH JACKSON

So sad the family buried him in a place we cannot visit, he loved his fans, and was always waving to them, always had them at his home at he Netherlands, and now he is all alone, so sad, should have buried him at Netherlands and opened it to public, yes I know he was sad on what happened with police, well gues what 95 percent never believed it any way

There seems to be some relevance to the rumor that MJ had a sex change operation about two years before he died. I haven't come upon hard evidence yet but several sources are reporting that he did indeed have the operation. That coupled with hormone injections helped MJ maintain his high voice and would explain why he had abnormally large breasts for a man.
