Joe Jackson

I CARRY A GUN

And I'm Not Afraid to Use It

Joe Jackson FLASHED A HANDGUN to a room full of people at a recent event in Vegas ... and told the crowd it's just like an American Express card ... he doesn't leave home without it.

The bizarre moment all went down while Joe was at the Tuscany Hotel and Casino in Vegas this weekend to be honored at the Black Music Awards (apparently that's a thing).

Joe was introduced by his friend -- Majestik -- who told the crowd a story about Joe confronting Michael Jackson's bodyguards two weeks before MJ's death.

During the alleged confrontation, Majestik says Joe flashed his gun at the guards and said -- "If I hear you all givin' my son drugs or doing anything illegal with my son ... I'ma kill all of you."

When Majestik turned the mic over to Joe -- JJ corroborated the story ... saying, "It's very true. Every word he said."

Then Joe told the crowd ... "I carry a piece everywhere I go ... I'm gonna show it to you."

Joe proceeded to open up his suit jacket, revealing a handgun holstered by his hip. Joe explained, "I've been threatened a lot of times and so I need to be safe."

We reached out to Joe to see if he is even legally allowed to pack heat -- but so far, we have yet to hear back.

"Wacko Jacko"


1. a term used by critics and the press to denote superstar Michael Jackson. He reportedly hates being called that. He scored big with megahit blockbuster albums like "Off the Wall", "Thriller" and "Bad". He landed several hits from these albums and more. He also has gotten into deep doo-doo and controversy, which we all know about.
"Wacko Jacko" was probably first used by the press around 1983 or 1984 or so.


2. Surrounded by "yes-people" all his life, it's no wonder he can't comprehend what's socially acceptable.
has to have an umbrella to keep out of the sun, and he looks like f***ing Dracula!!!
Mj's oopsies:


3. named his kid Blanket
dangled Blanket off a balcony
blanket's other name is prince, so he has 2 kids named prince!


morphed his face into a dead whitey
thriller video was crap-end of story
"it's not surgery! it's uummm, puberty!"
After 22(!) surguries, Mikey's nose fell off.
"Hi! I'm Wacko Jacko! Actually Dracula!"


4. A rare species of undetermined origins that is capable of changing it's entire appearance(color/hair/nose). Often seen drinking wine and watching porn with 10 year olds and a monkey.


5. Publicly known as Michael Jackson. Can either be one of two things:


A) A pale noseless demon from Hell who drops babies from balconies and does unspeakable things to male children who are left unattended.


B) malfunctioning cyborg which is falling apart thanks to years of neglect as a result of overriding its maintenance program with NAMBLA video seminars.
Oh ****! Wacko Jacko is heading to town. Hide the children quickly!


6. A sicko child molester who claims he's only had two plastic surgeries BUT he looks nothing like he did back in '71 and his face alone scares adults. He also somehow "turned" white because back 30 years ago he was black. He sings good music, but, face it, he's a freak.
If Wacko Jacko could turn back time 20 years ago he would be loved again.

7. A name given too Michael Jackson to express his strange behavior, Often used when refering too molestation allegations.
Wacko Jacko is a child molesting Son of a Bitch.

That wife beating, child beating sociopath should use it on himself, and do his family and the world a favor. The only reason why he would seem to care about Michael's well being, is the steady cash flow he needed to keep coming his way.

Uh    

The fact that he showed it in public speaks volumes. This "story" smells bad. CCW in Nevada has limitations...one of which being it is illegal to carry a gun in a casino, However, the fact he wasn't arrested on the spot gives one hesitation about the validity of this "story".
