Michael Douglas & Ex-Wife

Sorry, Your Son's No One Special

Michael Douglas and his ex-wife, Diandra have just been derailed in their effort to see their imprisoned son -- ironically derailed by a group that fights for prison reform ... TMZ has learned.

Cameron Douglas is currently serving time on drug charges and prison officials are not letting visitors see him -- including his parents.

Diandra has been enlisting Hollywood celebs to sign a petition posted on Change.org -- a petition urging prison officials to let them see their son. 

Her campaign was picking up steam but suddenly it disappeared from the website with no explanation.

We did some digging, and contacted the Drug Policy Alliance, which actually spearheaded the petition drive.  DPA officials told us they had a change of heart ... the sentiment was that it was unfair to help individuals and not focus on the big picture of prison abuses.  It seems there was also a feeling that it didn't look good to help famous people and not everyone else.

So Diandra and Michael are back to square one.

I love how they tried to make this a "thing" by whining about it at an awards show, but no one cares. Try fighting for the rights of people who are WRONGLY imprisoned. Then maybe people will give a crap.

I have to agree. The petition was, in fact, asking for preferential treatment.

Does anyone know what Cameron did to get his visitation taken away? Usually that is only done when a major rules violation has taken place. Perhaps Cameron's parents need to learn how to stop enabling their son and give him some tough love. Write a letter.

Dear Michael and Deandra STFU
Be grateful your son is doing what he needs to do, this is not about you. and be grateful he is not in Syria where problems are deadly.

Leave your son alone, stop creating drama.

Your son did the crime so now he has to pay like every other normal person out there. I don't feel sorry for this guy at all. He probably thought daddy was going to get him out of trouble like he always did before. Not this time, you won't ever learn if you don't think there will be any consequences

Why are you people calling cameron a kid? He's 34 fu(kin years old. Stop calling him a kid, and saying the government is raising him.

OK    

So he probably violated the rules and this is his punishment. Seems like the parents never disciplined him so the state is finally doing it.
