Michael Jackson's eldest child is putting his relatives on blast -- particularly Janet Jackson -- by posting what he claims is an angry group text message convo about his grandmother Katherine Jackson.

Katherine returned from Arizona late last night, but a few hours later Prince Jackson sent out a tweet that included the text message, dated July 23rd (Monday). In it Prince says, "This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO MY GRANDMA NOW!!!"

A reply from "Janet Jackson" reads ... "Don't let them pls." It appears the message continued, but Prince did not post the rest of it.

In his tweet Prince also says, "Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I’m really angry and hurt."

He continues, "For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth.”

Prince added a reference to his father -- "As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways."

11:20AM PT Prince has deleted the tweet ... including the screen grab of the text message.

Why Do People Abuse Donkeys?
Written By MiMi the Rabid.


 In a donkey rescue organization two questions pop up in every conversation, “Why do donkeys need rescuing?” and “Why do people abuse donkeys”.  The first question is usually answered by an introduction to the 100 plus donkeys at our rescue, the second question however has always been a tough one to answer.  Who can truly understand the human mind?  How can we broad brush everyone?  What separates those who handle animals roughly from those who inflict abuse?  How can one truly explain the motivation behind abuse?


 The answer came one Saturday afternoon while giving a tour of the rescue to a church group.  The kids and parents alike genuinely enjoyed the donkeys.  They saw how lovable and sweet these animals were.  They remarked on how gentle and quiet they were with even the smallest of the children.  They saw first hand the fear and aggression in the abused donkeys.  They saw the scars, the split ears, the lumps, the bruises and the cut noses.  They were able, for the first time in many of their lives, to see firsthand the result of cruelty that no animal should ever have to face.


 After the tour, the Pastor made the remark that the donkey was the only mammal in the bible to be given the power of human speech.  I was amazed!  I had heard the stories in Sunday School, even read the bible a time or two, but how could I have forgotten this?  Embarrassed, I asked to know more.  I thought that this might make an interesting addition to my tours, lectures and arguments.  What I heard went much deeper than an amusing anecdote, what I heard answered the age old question, “Why do people abuse donkeys?”


 Numbers 22:21


Balaam, a prophet of God, was employed by some local rich folks to speak out against Israel.  He saddled up his donkey and began a trip to Kirjathhuzoth.  God was really upset that Balaam was going against his wishes and sent an angel to stop him.  As the man and donkey traveled down a road the donkey saw the angel in front of her and turned away.  Angry at her apparent misbehavior, Balaam whipped the donkey. Again the pair traveled on until the donkey once again saw the angel blocking the road.  Again she turned away and again she was whipped. 


 Once their journey resumed, the angel blocked a narrow passage between two walls and as the donkey turned away, she crushed Balaam’s foot against the wall.  As the donkey could not get away from the angel, she simply laid down.  Balaam was outraged by this transgression and whipped the donkey without mercy. 


 As God saw this taking place, He gave the donkey the gift of speech.  The donkey said, in only the way a donkey could, “Why are you beating me? Am I not the same donkey that has been faithful to you all of these years?  Am I not the same donkey who has always taken you wherever you wanted to go?  Why are you beating me?”


 And Balaam replied, “Because you made me look stupid”


 The story goes on the say that the angel appeared to Balaam and explained to him that if the donkey had not turned away he would have killed him.  And Balaam saw the error of his ways and they all lived happily ever after.


 But...........


I had the answer!  I was amazed at its simplicity and honesty.  I had always searched for a deeper meaning; perhaps a genetic deficiency, or eating paint chips as children, or too much fast food and television.  But it was none of these things.  It was something simpler, something that weak people have no tolerance for and ignorant people lash out at.  The one thing that attacks us as the “superior” being.


Question:            Why do people abuse donkey?


Answer:            Because they make us look stupid.


 No other animal that I have ever come across has the ability to take all of your power away like a donkey.  In a parade one of my donkeys stopped and would not move.  On a pack trip 2 of my donkeys decided that it was time to stop after just 2 hours of hiking.  In both cases I was powerless.  They had all of the control over the situation.  If a donkey makes a decision, he will stand by it until the end.  The only way to get him to change his decision is to make him think that he has had a better idea.


 You cannot force a donkey to do anything.  Beating will only make him more persistent.  More persistent leads to more frustration on the part of the abuser.  More frustration leads to more beating.  You can beat most animals into doing anything including killing themselves.  You cannot do this to a donkey.  Simply stated, they make us look stupid. 


 Eventually, we resumed the parade route as well as the pack trip.  In both cases, the donkeys simply had made a new decision and all was well in their world once again.  As I enjoy these particular traits of my donkeys, I never get frustrated with it.  Many times I take the opportunity to sit back and reflect on what may lie in my path (life) that may be blocking my way.

Outside looking in    

Hopefully, the courts won't let behavior of the Jackson adults involved be justified away. Disappointed to hear Mrs. Jackson justify her adult children's behavior. A serious concern for reinstating guardianship.

Michael took care of his children. They appear to have good head's on their shoulders.

So his twitter account was probably hacked that's why it was deleted. Those delinquents leeches need to know Michael's children know them and their dad taught them how to defend themselves from vultures like them all!!! They need to be prosecuted, they kidnapped, drugged, threated, assault, hit, scared, chased three children, need to pay!!!!

This whole story is sad...sad. Michael raised his children so well and knew that his sisters and brothers were always jealous of him; so sad. I have to say, I thought more of Janet but have completely lost ALL respect for her. If you notice, her net worth online has not been updated since 2007?? I am done with you Janet. Michael, we all miss you so much and will watch your Amazing kids. Kids, keep your heads up and know that we are here for you and so is your beloved, father....in spirit.

From CNN News:


The Twitter posting referred to lessons taught to him by his father.


"As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways," he tweeted.


The tweet concluded with this: "If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth." It was signed "Michael Jackson Jr."

The tweets mysteriously disappeared several hours later, replaced with a message disavowing them.

By mid-afternoon, when the children done with summer school, Paris posted tweets explaining
:

"the thing my brother tweeted last night was the last true thing he tweeted.. he was hacked saying what we tweeted was false..


prince will repost the image of the text


'if you continue with your lives , i will continue with the truth' prince wanted me to tell you guys that okay . please know its us tweeting"
