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.

hello    

Give it a rest people! Michael Jackson is dead he was mostly to blame for that. I do feel bad for his children. After all, they can't help it if their father was a whacko. I do believe he loved his kids, but I also believe he loved drugs more. No one put a gun to his head and made him do all the drugs he did. I also believe he had a hard time coping with reality. So for the fans trying to stop the exploitation of his family, maybe you should step back and concentrate on your own lives rather than the lives of people you don't even know.

Jackson's NUTBAG fans need to just mind their own business and let his estate handle things. You'd have to be a freaking moron to be so insane over the king of the pedophiles, try getting a life losers and stop obsessing over a child molesting freak show!

Seriously, I read the book and hear my own mother in Katherine's voice. She's full of love and needed to clear her heart, and the fact she partnered with Mr.Mann raises suspicion that there's much more to the story... and I don't mean that he's the bad guy. Just maybe, he's the hero. She could have worked with anyone, yet she chose Mr.Mann. The book is great... she should be proud. And now she's finally doing an interview to tell her side of the story.
Gotta ask yourself, why didn't she work with the estate? Give her a break, and listen to her interview tomorrow on Oprah.

Joe Jackson an illiterate child abuser    

yyz@#59

You seem to be a member of the Jackson family - one of those MJ kept the hell away from! Well! he kept the hell away from all of you. His poor kids are living with manipulating strangers! This petition is not against the kids; it's against you and the bloodsucking Mann, Schaeffel, JoeJ, Randy J and all the other vampires; AND YES! I support the estate because that's how MJ wanted his business run and who he wanted to run it. Can you imagine what would have happened to his business by now if illiterate amateurs like his family members headed by JoeJ were running it??

STOP USING THE PHRASE "TRUE MJ FANS" THERE'S NO SUCH THING. IF YOU'RE A FAN, YOU'RE A FAN. SO SICK OF ALL THESE "FANS" THINKING THEY'RE BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE.

Howard Mann is a disgrace and all he does is exploiting the legacy of Michael Jackson.Katherine Jackson needs to end her business partnership with that man for the sake of her grand-kids.
