MJ Estate Slams MSNBC

'Disgusted' by Decision

to Air Murray Documentary

11/9/2011 9:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1109-mj-conrad-murray-tmz-BN
The Michael Jackson Estate is lashing out at MSNBC -- saying it's "disgusted" with the network for planning to air the Conrad Murray documentary this weekend.

The Estate issued a statement ... saying, "Like so many of Michael’s fans, the Estate is also disgusted by MSNBC’s irresponsible and inexplicable decision to air a Conrad Murray 'documentary.'"

The statement continued, "The Co-Executors, John Branca and John McClain, are sending a letter to the top executives at Comcast, NBC Universal and MSNBC to express their disdain for their actions."

The MJ fans are predictably up in arms as well -- in fact, the group, "Justice 4 MJ" is trying to organize a global boycott of the documentary, "Michael Jackson and The Doctor: A Fatal Friendship" ... saying, "The only documentary we want to see is the one of Murray enjoying prison life."

Another thing I find funny is, NBC could care less about you looney tunes. You all say "Boycott NBC, Don*****ch the doc." but I guarantee you all will watch the doc. and then you will take to twitter cryin' about it. And then you will tweet to Jermaine and Jackie and Randy and the others like THEY really care about you. LOSERS!!!

Funny, the family is disgusted over a do***entary but couldn't have cared less when their son/brother was diddling little boys....The hypocrisy is amazing.

all about the money    

They are disgusted by the do***entary because it may not reflect MJ in an angels light like the family thinks he lives yet they are now selling MJ's deathbed and don't find that digesting or morbid in the least. All this hopla since MJ's death has just made me more hostile towards the Jackson family in general. MJ was not an angel yet the family and fans would have you believe he was the second coming...

I will NOT be watching this doc. It is in very poor judgement and dis-tasteful to give Murry the man who single handeled Killed Michael Jackson..Any MJ fan i would hope will boycott this show.

Theyre just pissed THEY wont profit off of it. They all need to go and crawl back under the dirty rock they came out from. Where were they when he was all drugged up and out of his mind? Sure not trying to help their brother. Only now that they can profit from his death are they all out and in public outcry. Oh boohoo. If they can have their say and specials, he should be able to as well.

I hope they the network will go down.
It is of no good taste to air a do***entary made by a convicted felon.

He started making this doc. in 2009...while a lot of people (family,friends) where still mourning about Jackson`s death,he already was planning how to make money of it!
And he calls himself Jackson`s friend!?????
Disgusting!
As somebody said before: he didn`t want to talk in the courtroom,but is willing to talk for money!!
Murray told so many lies, I bet half of the doc. (or more) will be lies as well.
And Jackson won`t be here to rebute what ever lies this man chooses to tell.

Nice message to the world as well: You can make big money from your crimes!

FACT1    

THE JACKSONS WOULD BE BETTER OFF SHUTTING THEIR MOUTHS,
ESPECIALLY JERMAINE & LATOYA.
THOSE 2 ARE NO TALENT ZERO'S, PLAYING OFF THE DEAD.
LET THE SMOKE CLEAR, THEN TALK ONLY ABOUT THE MUSIC.
THEIR GREED IS ATROCIOUS.

JANET SEEMS TO BE STAYING WAY AWAY FROM HER FAMILY.
SHE JUST MAY BE THE MOST RESPONSIBLE & SMARTEST OUT OF THEM ALL.
THE FAMILY, MICHAEL & ALL, ARE REALLY EMBARRASSING.

Right. The Jackson estate and the Jackson family are so known for their good taste and dignity. I'm sure if there were money for them involved, they'd change their tune.

I saw Jermaine on the Ellen show today, talking about how strong and healthy Michael was; that his wheelchair photos, etc. were part of the great practical jokes he played to get the media to report on his poor physical health. So he could then jump up and 'miraculously' show what good shape he was in. Jermaine, you just keep telling yourself that and maybe you'll make peace with the fact that you and your family ignored his drug use and deteriorating health so long as the money was rolling.

OMG...Jermaine Jackson is a certifiable moron...HE'S not giving it attention, so he Tweets about it??? This, from a guy who can't seem to make a dime anymore, is behind on child support (allegedly), and was totally against the tribute concert. Whatever Jermaine.....pull your head out of your ass already.
