Jackson Estate 'Pleased' Discovery Pulled Doc

12/31/2010 6:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The co-executors of Michael Jackson's estate think Discovery Channel did the right thing when they yanked a documentary from their UK schedule that was to feature a reenactment of MJ's autopsy.

A rep for John Branca and John McClain tells TMZ, "The co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson are pleased that Discovery Channel made the correct decision in choosing to cancel this exploitative program."

The co-executors went on to say they feel Michael's fans played a large role in Discovery's decision, saying, "While Discovery cited legal proceedings and our request as the reasons for its decision, none of this would have happened had it not been for the incredible passion displayed by countless Michael Jackson fans worldwide who knew they stood as one and that their voices could not be ignored."

As for any future plans to air the show, Branca and McClain said, "We are hopeful that this show will never run in any market in the future."

I see pettiness, immaturity, and mean-spiritedness are still alive and well in the forums.

All I can say to you, "Scott", is that at least I was woman enough to stand up and apologize for my past behavior. Obviously you prefer to act like a juvenile. I am sure I know you, but I can tell you, with an attitude like that, I prefer NOT to know you. Your faux charm doesn't work on me.

I am all for intelligent, mature discussions here with the proviso that we agree to disagree and don't attack one another. I had enough fighting last time around thank you and I would like to think that you people are adult enough to give someone a second chance. If you don't, well, that's your problem, not mine.

You must be imagining things as I have never been nice to a hater. Maybe you are confusing me with one of my clones?

And as far as someone saying "vile" things, well I can refer you right back to your ex UnWell.

I am not going to go back and forth with you on this issue. I just don't get how some refering to Michael as the "King Of All Music" affects you.

Go back and read HumanNature's explaination. It says it all very clearly.

Point taken, My bad.

MiMi if you had bothered to read my post on the last board and my apology you would KNOW that OhWell and I broke up a long time ago. I have not been on these boards in ages, and it is precisely stuff like this that is wrong with this place. You jump to conclusions and lump me in with someone I don't even talk to anymore. Shame on you, MiMi, I thought you were more intelligent and compassionate than that.

As for you Human Nature, one day you too will be underground. I wouldn't rejoice so heartily over the thought I may be there soon...have you forgotten karma??? I would be careful crossing the street or getting behind the wheel of a car if I were you. I hear karma is a real b i t c h.

It's ok, Scott, maybe I am just a bit touchy since this is my first dip in the waters of TMZ in a while.

If I am woman enough to ask forgiveness I am woman enough to forgive. It's not that it bothered me SO terribly, I was just bracing myself for the onslaught that was sure to follow with some of the others here who are your friends.

I sincerely hope you have a wonderful New Year, and that life brings you everything you need and want.

So it looks like TMZ is ending the year on an MJ post. Wonder if it is on purpose?
