Jackson Autopsy Documentary Too Shocking To Show

Well it looks like we won’t be seeing Michael’s autopsy.

Executors of Michael Jackson’s estate on Wednesday asked a TV network to cancel a program re-enacting the singer’s autopsy, calling it “in shockingly bad taste”.

“Your decision to even schedule this program is in shockingly bad taste, insensitive to Michael family and appears to be motivated solely by your blind desire to exploit Michael’s death,” co-executors John Branca and John McClain wrote in a letter to Discovery Communications.

“On behalf of Michael’s family, fans, common sense and decency, we urge you to reconsider and cancel this program,” they added.

The show, “Michael Jackson’s Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson,” is set to air in Europe in January.

A print advertisement for the program shows a body covered by a sheet, with one hand poking out wearing the “Thriller” singer’s trademark sequined glove.

“Discovery obviously views this as clever advertising and creative ‘branding’ for its program. But in fact, the ad is debased, sick and insensitive,” Branca and McClain wrote.
