Conrad Murray

FELONIOUS MONKEY

1101_conrad_murray_monkey_business_launch_v2Conrad Murray -- a black man -- decided he wanted to go trick or treating as a gorilla last night ... and even swung from a tree. And it got us thinking ... why the hell would he do that???

Considering the history of horrible racist people comparing blacks to apes, it just seems like a bad idea.

Then again, there are some people in our office who feel that if any white person (or Latino, Asian or anyone else) can wear an ape costume on Halloween, a black guy should be able to do the same thing.

Here's another theory -- we know Murray is gunning for a reality show, so maybe he picked the costume because he knew it would stir up controversy ... just the kind of thing reality producers want.

Still, we gotta ask ...

Classy for a professional adult, that went to prison for malpractice and the inevitable death of a patient. this is all he can muster up? He looks like a child, incompetent, actually some kids are smarter than him. No sense of decorum. He should be mentally evaluated. Note: I'm not a MJ fanatic.

Was he this crazy before Michael died or was he already this crazy when Michael hired him?

I thought Conrad Murray was Trinidadian? That would make him primarily a whole melting pot of races, unlike what TMZ is trying to imply as an ethnic slur directed at Blacks of African American descent. Fail.

This man is disgusting. He killed someone whether it was an accidentally or not, has shown no remorse or taken responsibility and now he's out of prison serving half of his sentence and famewhoring trying to get his creepy face everywhere. Also TMZ you are also disgusting for following this creep everywhere, he is not a celebrity he is a convicted killer he should not be getting any attention. And if any network gives this man a show they should be ashamed of themselves. It's basically spitting on MJ's grave, he should not be getting awarded for killing someone.

It allowed him anonymity. If it hadn't for for you apeholes, he might have achieved it.

I checked "who cares?"

Exactly projecting your own racist ideas.... If you want to link his being black to gorrillas or apes that's probably because that's already had that about black people on your mind. Racist MF who ever posted this.

I don't see why the costume is controversial. I just think the man has lost his mind.
