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.

It is not written in stone that you owe your parents one damn thing when they have fcuked you up and fcuked you over. I'm sure he's doing his reflecting but why should he let the paps and fools with cell phones see it?

The rumor that never goes away is that Macaulay was molested by his Dad(and handlers) and that's why he and Michael Jackson were so close-because Michael Jackson was also molested by his Dad and handlers(and older brother).
The many years of financial and sexual abuse turned Michael and Macaulay both into addicts.

somethings you cant forgive whether they are your parent or not. some people you're better off without in your life. I feel that way about my mother. its possible that being stolen from and jerked around Mac feels the same way.

If your parents were deadbeats or abusive, the best things that you can do is to stay away from them, try your best to live life and be happy. You don't owe these egg and sp-rm donors anything. I'm talking about people who deliberately try to ruin their childrens' lives, make their kids lives a living hell. If they're on their deathbed, good for them. Let them stay there. If it was the other way around they would not give a sh-t. If you see them in the street on fire, do not waste your spit to put them out. This also goes for siblings and any other deadbeat relatives. Some people are just destructive and toxic, and think that being family excuses anything. F-ck off!

I'd rather stay 'Home Alone' that go watch this dude play a kazoo. Mercy, this guy's life has really sunk to a new low. That video is one of the saddest things I've seen so far in 2014

Macaulay, I've been where you are, and I would like to give you some good advice. Go and see your dad before he dies, not for him, but for you. You need to put your anger aside so that you can feel good about your own humanity.

Leave MC alone. His relationship to his Father is very personal. If Mac wants to go to his Father, he will.

Ummmm    

His dad was physically abuse to his mother and the children, robbed him of his childhood and forced him to keep making movies. Than spent all his money. Just because someone made you doesn't make them a parent. His father treated him horrible. Why would he go see him? It's not really anyone's buisness anyway.

No one knows how or if he is hurting, that's his own private matter. I can't believe he doesn't feel something, but when a person is estranged from someone, even their own parent, it feels strange to try to fix or mend things after so much time has passed. And what can he say to someone who is now all messed up? the whole situation is just screwed.

Hipsters annoy me. I hope the fad ends soon. Take Macauley's music with you. Take Coachella with you. Take the Big Bang theory with you. I get it. Nerds are cool too. Nerds are now cooler than whatever was cooler then. WE GET IT. Please go away hipsters.

I don't blame Macauley one bit. They are estranged for a reason(which we don't know why). He worked so hard as a child to support his family and I'm almost positive he resents his parents for stealing his childhood away from him... Everyone handles personal family moments in their own way all because he didn't hop on a plane and isn't crying his eyes out doesn't make him a bad person. Annnddddd his band defiantly needs some help. Hahaha

i don't think he has any obligation to go. His choice, and i don't think he needs to justify it
