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.

Who gives a **** about this goofball. Hes DEAD and will remain that way. This is OLD news and not worth the time and effort that these boycotters are putting into this. If they stop mentioning him then maybe all this bull**** will go away and we won't have to hear about him anymore. **** Michael Jackson!

The Vault would be better served by new management,like Branca and McClain.Howard Mann is not a good choice for this business.

I'm a fan of MJ and in total agreement with the letter, especially the part about the degrading name "Jacko". He is Michael, MJ or preferably the "King of Pop. I miss him and am only interested in news about him. God bless Katherine and MJ's children.

To all you negative posters...why are you even commenting? It only makes us fans love him more and push harder to get justice for him. When he was alive, his character was assasinated by greedy, evil people who will pay for it one day and they know who they are. Now that he is dead..we the fans are not going to stay silent while you continue to drive nails into his legacy. He is a father and son. Treat people as you would like to be treated and one way to do that is to say nothing if you have nothing good to say. Rest in peace Michael....you are truly missed and loved.

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.

@ HumanNature

lol. Some people are just so stupid it don't make no sense. His official autopsy mentioned nothing about a sex change. Why don't people just do a little research sometimes?

The real MJ fans would never do such a thing. By now everyone knows that Kathrine and Howard Mann are the good guys anyhow. Howard Mann is the only hope MJ's family has.

No real Michael Jackson fan would ban his own mothers business. I have Michaels mothers new book in an gold, iron book display on my mantel. I enjoyed the book and will always support Michaels mother. Howard Mann is a family friend to Michael's family and I am very happy that he is helping the family.

This is complete and utter bull*hit. The fans are not protesting the vault website, the estate is, because the real criminals are not getting their piece of Kathrines pie. More power to Kathrine Jackson and Howard Mann in their endeavors. Howard Mann has nothing to gain in helping the Kathrine Jackson except sleeping good at night for helping a friend. From what I see, that mann was wealthy to begin with and apparently very bright. I understand he was always fond of MJ.
