Michael Jackson's Death

Fans Send 10k Roses

to MJ's Gravesite

EXCLUSIVE

0625_michael_jackson_memorial_roses_launchOver 10,000 roses were sent to Michael Jackson's final resting place today -- marking his 3-year death anniversary -- all courtesy of some very devoted fans.

A MJ fan group based in L.A. tells TMZ ... they used social media sites to raise money from fans all over the world for the memorial project ... finally collecting over $30k.

All that green bought a lot of flowers ... over 10,000 roses were delivered to Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, CA today -- where the King of Pop was laid to rest in 2009 -- all to honor the late-singer on the anniversary of his death.

What's more -- we're told the roses will be put to good use and recycled after today ... over half will be sent to senior centers and other places where they can be used to make people happy.

Michael Jackson died June 25, 2009 ... he was 50.

actually as far as the money being used for other purposes..
this was a 3 dollar rose that people all over the world donated.
that doesnt mean it was the main donation people made in his memory.
So people gave to many different charities in Michaels name and donated a rose as well just for Michael.
these roses are going to cheer up a lot of eldery people in nursing homes and hospitals, and other places that need some cheer.
What a beautiful gesture from his fans, to continue his generous charity work in his honor,,

Leader of the ignorant masses    

I would prefer that they donated the money to charity in my honor rather than waste it on flowers that will be dead soon.

The TRUE idiots are the people who donated over $60...0.000 for a WHITE grandmother who had some mean things said to her, & over $250.000 for the BLACK child killer George Zimmerman. If Michael Jackson had 10 kids, including his own adopted son accusing him of molestation, he would have got locked up too. But being that out of the thousands of children that came to neverland & spent the night, only 2 money hungry WHITE boys & their families who was not satisfied with Micheal just paying their Medical expenses, came out!!! So get over it, R.I.P Mikie!!!!!!!

For all the people complaining that the money could have gone to a charity to help starving kids or whatever, you are probably all hypocrites. So what if a bunch of people spend $20 or whatever on these flowers.... I'm sure all those complaining regularly spend more than $20 on the stuff they want but don't need wether that's music, cinema, beer, clothes or whatever else. Unless you are spending every penny you don't need to survive on charity then you have no right to criticise.

You know , I find it ironic that Michael Jackson wanted to do so much good for the world that he donated , what 400 hundred million , and that wasnt enough for his critics.
and his fans pay 3 bucks for a rose for him , and that is TOO MUCH on his behalf..
This baloney people throw at this man is just silly..
I saw someone thrilled last night on this site, because they cancelled a mj radio show for the election in Egypt..why wouldnt they ? that is a huge event ,
Why wouldnt it trump MJ??
Why would MJ fans , who actually understood how important an issue like that was to the world, and all of us , who live in it, be upset??
You are missing the point..
It is about world peace , something MJ was advocating for .......that is a win for MJ fans , if you didnt know that....................
If you are following all the MJ stuff , you might consider that ...
Lots of MJ fans are busy donating time and money in this mans name ..

Folks, we have a winner! TMZ is pleased to announce that HumanNature, based on number of comments, is Michael Jackson’s number one fanatic! Over seven thousand unique comments, over 900,000 words so far! Over a period spanning an incredible 3 years! To put this in perspective, if we bundled all of HumanNature’s comments together in book form, we’d be looking at something the size of Dostoyevsky’s “Brother’s Karamozov.” His comments now account for over 40% of entries posted on any Michael Jackson story on our website (he also posts under at least one additional alias, Duilama).

And even more remarkable, he is even more obsessed with another topic: pedophilia, or “pedo” as he fondly calls it. Be it an article on any subject at all—football, perfume, real estate, public schools, adolescent girls, baby names, and hairstyles (just to name a few), he is able to deftly weave this topic in.

So to reward HumanNature for his admirable interest in Mr. Jackson, we thought we’d give him our “special treatment” even though we had to send our scouts out beyond our thirty mile zone for this one. With help from our IT department and our web surveillance team we were able to trace his true name and identity:

HumanNature (second web alias Duilama) is a registered Level Three sex offender who currently lives in Sedro-Woolley, a city in Skagit County in the State of Washington. HumanNature was convicted in 1997 of: “rape of a child in the first degree. Victim: 7 year old female daughter of his girlfriend.”

Though for litigious reasons we can’t reveal his real name here, you can read more about him by clicking on: http://www.city-data.com/so/so-Sedro-Woolley-Washington.html#ixzz1ypX8Unqw
