Show Starring White Michael Jackson Gets Canceled After Backlash

Joseph Fiennes Michael Jackson canceled

The controversial episode of Sky Arts’ Urban Myths featuring a white actor playing Michael Jackson has been canceled.

After photos of Joseph Fiennes leaked as the late King of Pop, the Jackson family was outraged. Taj and Paris Jackson both took their Twitters to voice their disgust with the casting.

“Unfortunately this is what my family has to deal with. No words could express the blatant disrespect.” – Taj Jackson

The episode was scheduled to air on January 19, and it focused on the singer’s road trip from NYC to Los Angeles with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando after the 9/11 attack.

It seems like the production company actually listened to the concerns because they decided to cancel the broadcast after hearing the concerns from the Jackson family.

“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 lighthearted look at reportedly true events and never intended to cause any offense.”

After news of the cancellation was released, Paris shared her appreciation.

Were you looking forward to seeing a white man play MJ?


  1. People are butt hurt too easily! Big deal, the actor is Caucasian. Make-up is part and parcel of an actor’s craft. PC is BS.

    • If they portrayed you, your mother, grandmother and every one of your female ancestors as a herd of cows would that be accurate? Or would you be butt hurt?

      • But he looked like Michael though.

        But if the self hating family wants to complain let them. We all know they are procreating the hardest to wash out blackness from their family.

        Joe is the cause of Michael bleaching his skin calling him ugly and making fun of his nose and physically abusing him when he was young. Letting industry executives molest him as a boy.

      • @17:08….. ROFLMMFAO!!!! Hopefully the message got home! These neanderthals have been trying to have someone significant from our race on their “team” for the longest because they are devoid of creation and are anti-life. Everything they “create” has been stolen, gentrified, adversely possessed, etc. Sky Arts Urban Myths did intend to create offense because the casting was not FACTUAL. Who doesn’t know that Michael Jackson IS “black”? Imagine a production company casting Frank Sinatra as a biracial or mexican. Neanderthals are such filthy hypocrites.

  2. Paris is a junkie who keeps saying she’s black & michael did his best to look white do whats the problem?

    • Yup!
      90’s Michael would have given this movie a thumbs up but 00’s Michael would have hated this portrayal.

      • True. In his last days he seemed to have come to his senses that no matter how much he whitened himself, to them he’ll always be a ‘nigger’

  3. I Loooooooove Mike. But it’s what he always wanted to be WHITE. This shouldn’t even be a decision.

  4. MJ tried to look as white as he could, but you’re not supposed to actually say that. Just like black women and their hair hats. We all know it’s fake af, but actually suggesting that it’s fake hair is considered offensive.

    • Look a here bitch black women do NOT have the lock on fake hair…so STFU with the generalizations.

      You self-hating piece of shit.

      • When white, Latina and Asian girls start buying African hair, your logic might hold some weight. Unfortunately for your point, that is not the case. It’s only you dumbasses buying hair from other nationalities thinking that shit doesn’t look absolutely mismatched on your heads. I mean, do y’all own mirrors?

        • First off I don’t buy hair bitch and secondly fake hair is fake f*cking hair dumbass bitch, it looks good on NO ONE!!!

          Your mom must be a chickenhead for you to have such hate for black women…no you just suck that much that no sane black woman wants to f*ck you…get over it loser.

          • Lies upon lies! You know you got about 5 bundles sewn in your head right now; why else would you be taking this all so personally? Loosen up your tracks and relax, Weaverina!

            • Lies upon Lies! Only broke down low bitter queens give a shit what any women puts in her hair REAL BLACK MEN don’t give a shit. Losen up the tampon in your butt, and relax, QUEEN!

              • Yes, just keep telling yourself that there is a REAL BLACK man out there that will love all yo fake shyt. Whatever delusion gets you through the night, love.

            • Yeah you and your mom are chickenheads…and I know who I am, too bad your ignorant ass cannot say the same.

              Stupid ass bitch.

              • Very few white women wear fake hair these days. There was a 3 year period when clip in extensions were popular, but that’s over.

                And the hair that white women would clip on looked like their natural hair.
                That is the big difference.

                Cultural appropriation of straight hair is appalling.

                Just kidding…we don’t care

              • ^^^BS they don’t…their hair is f*cked up if not moreso… they have always worn some form of fake hair whether it be falls, clip ins, sewn in plz miss me with the BS.

              • And just because YOU can’t tell really does not mean much…we all know you drink any Kool-Aid kakkra’s give you so stay asleep.

    • Loser black male trying to deflect how f*cked up he is just look around at black American it’s the result of black males being f*cked up. Abandoning their communities are not raising your sons and all the fingers point right back to the black males nice try though punk.

      Based on your sassy bitch ass mouth one of these days you’re going to mouth off to a cop and you’re going to get put you out of your misery I will be applauding that day.

      • Well close your legs and quit giving birth to these “loser black males” then.

        • Still sucking your own dick…smfh.

          What a sack of shit you are…asap, 100, original wo~man, and all your other shit ass handles.

          • Forgive me. I’m crazy AF. Getting molested by your mamma’s boyfriend F’s up a person.

        • Well then close your down low thug legs and quit sticking your raw infected dick giving seed to produce “Loser down low mentally ill black males” then.

          Keep f*cking your white bros on the down low and shut up we already know you sock puppets are down low punks.

          • But who is ultimately getting the infected seed though? Even in what I’m sure you thought was an ingenious comeback, you’re still the loser. Try again?

      • How come black males punk black women when we are alone in comforts of the black community but when around whites black males don’t even pretend that they are our friends… denouncing their stereotypes and stats as false cheesing to white males and white females unloyal punks don’t raise their sons.

        Black males = down low mentally ill snakes


      • Lol she said that police killings of punk ass bitch mouth down low e-troll black males are justifiable. HELL YES, BITCH. LOL

  5. It’s supposed to be a comedy/satire. MJ looked crazy after he changed and many many black parents had to explain that shit to their kids, “mommy why does Michael look different now”. We had all kinds of answers!

  6. Good point. Do you think black women sewing Asian hair into their heads is tantamount to MJ’s bleaching? I do!

        • It is not your mother’s fault you ain’t shit…it is yourz.

          You are a grown ass man who needs to take responsibility for his short and I do mean shortcomings.

      • @09:31 Dude, if you’re trying to attract a “beautiful feminine black woman one day” then you are WAY OFF MARK. The essence of your cantankerous vibes will repel every eligible black woman who you think should be attracted TO you. Like attracts like. You can not fake frequencies! You can be smelled a mile away! You are a touched bird and a rotted corpse to the very type of good black woman you think should want you. What an idiot, you know nothing about women, that’s obviously why you think you can pretend on line to be a “masculine worthy”, but your vibes speaks volumes! Like attracts Like so I’m sure you’ll end up with a cantankerous bitter black females just like yourself. Good luck with that! #YouBecomeWhatYouBelieve #WhatYouDislikeInOthersIsUsuallyAMirrorOfSelf

        • You really have to ask?

          Go over all the negative shit you say about black women and ask yourself would you f*ck you if you were a black woman…if you dare say yes, you are full of shit.

        • I’m sorry sisters that’s an imposter! I’m the original asshole and I’m here to apologize I know I say some wacky shit and that’s because you all know I got some serious problems please forgive me.

      • Dude stop impersonating me yeah I know both you and me hate black women and we’re f*cked up for that you know that’s how we roll on the DL and shit anyway please forgive me sisters were disrupting this blog with my personal insanity.

    • @PC POLICE: How about those TANS though!? Do you think that’s tantamount to wanting to BE BLACK?

  7. This guy’s skin is so yellooooooooow….the make up was pretty bad.

      • I had a feeling that the grim reaper wasn’t done yet. Let that be a lesson to the rest of the pedophiles and ratchet assed people in our community who want to keep on perpetuating generations of dysfunction.

    • Yeah I agree. Good riddance. Nigga was up here lying about his frail ass appearance-“Im on a juice diet!” FOH!

  8. Hopefully down low punk ass bitch black males will stop bleaching their skin to be like white males and stop getting perms and trying to pass with their closeted gay asses. It’s funny how if black males hate to be black but try to monitor black women and diss bw to get props from white males = down low bottom bitch punks. #bitterqueens

  9. OMG please stop saying he was trying to be white!!!Michael had vitiligo!!! It started a long time ago..that’s why he started wearing those gloves!!! He didn’t want blotched skin so he finished his whole body….Do your research!!!

    • it makes your skin not have any pigmentation… it starts with a blotch here and there… turn no natural protection against the sun…ect….that’s why he always had umbrellas….

  10. dude died looking like a white woman.

    yall gotta realize in that interview where he claims hes black it was during the rape allegations. that’s when MJ became black again LOL
