Macaulay Culkin

Rocking with Band in NYC

NOT Rushing to Ailing Father

1/24/2014 7:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012414_macaulay_culkin_launch
Macaulay Culkin chose the kazoo and his band mates over his estranged father -- who just suffered a massive stroke -- choosing instead to perform in NYC last night.

Macaulay and The Pizza Underground took the stage 2 days after Kit Culkin had a stroke ... and is currently in really bad shape in an Oregon hospital.

As we first told you, family sources say Kit had tried unsuccessfully to get Macaulay's phone number recently ... all in an attempt to reconnect.    

You gotta think Mac's heard about his dad's dire situation by now -- and it's possible he could be headed west soon -- but hey ... someone had to play the kazoo solo last night.

Yes, there was a solo. Just watch.

No one can really judge him... I think he is a strange dude but I can't judge him for his relationship with his dad. Maybe he has his reasons...

it means hi father was more than a bastard. if he didnt go there in this situation and not just him and also none of his siblings were there, that's te only explanation. and if he chose t have party that doesnt mean it doesnt hurt him. maybe he's just trying to cover it. that culkin was worst dad on the planet. so bad that even make michael lohan "angel"

Americans weirdly value blood relatives over everything else. His dad was a right b##tard and probably helped ruin his life but for some reason you believe Macaulay's 'got to be there for him'. ridiculous. You drop toxic friends there is no reason you shouldn't be able to drop toxic family.

it;s his life. but he is being stupid for at least not showing up there to see his dad one more time. but maybe he does not have the money to travel. as his career is not really going anywhere. so he has to play with the band to make a few dollars.

Wow ...    

There is a reason he didn't run to his dad's side. Just because a person creates you, doesn't mean they parented you. In fact sometimes they are nothing but toxic. Look at Lilo. I support him in his decisions, whatever they might be. Don't shame the guy for taking care of himself, it should read his dad ought to be ashamed, he was sooo bad his own son does not want to visit.

Considering the conditions of his youth, I'm not surprised Mac did not run to his father's bedside. But just because Mac is performing doesn't mean he is not in touch with either his father and/ or his family.

Just because someone is family doesn't mean they are nice. There is a huge reason why Kit Culkin's children do not speak with him. He was the original Kris Kardashian except he verbally abused his kids and stole their money. Macauley nevet had a childhood and after all his years of working has far less due to his father's greed and substance problems. I wish no one ill health but I certainly do not judge Macauley's actions either. Father or not, Kit only has himselfo to blame for the way his children have ignored him for years.

Just My Opinion    

Dude, go to your Dad. The dude wants to make it right before he dies. Don't leave it like this. I am sure he wants your forgiveness before he passes away.
