'Urban Myths' Cancels Michael Jackson Episode

Paris Jackson lead the pack of the Jackson family being up in arms over Urban Myths show potrayal of her father, the late Michael Jackson

She has since deleted her tweets, but she shared with the world that she was super offended by what she saw, and felt it was intentional to make her father and Liz Taylor (her godmother) look ridiculous. Taj Jackson echoed Paris's disappointment, and E! quotes him saying "Unfortunately this is what my family has to deal with. No words could express the blatant disrespect."

Joseph Fiennes was not the best casting, that's for sure, but what may have killed it was that a petition was risen for more than 20,000 signatures to boycott the Sky Arts episode. Still, Fiennes is quoted by E! saying that he "knew the sensitivity, especially to Michael's fans and to Michael's family. It doesn't negate who he was."

Variety shares that Sky Art's spokesperson said: “We have taken the decision not to broadcast ‘Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon,’ a half-hour episode from the Sky Arts ‘Urban Myths’ series, in light of the concerns expressed by Michael Jackson’s immediate family. We set out to take a light-hearted look at reportedly true events and never intended to cause any offence. Joseph Fiennes fully supports our decision.”
