Jackson's Death Mocked In South Park

MICHAEL JACKSON fans have hit out at the creators of SOUTH PARK - a new episode of the controversial animated series shows their idol living in Purgatory.
Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, David Carradine and Patrick Swayze - who all lost their lives this year (09) - feature in the latest series, entitled I See Dead Celebrities, which depicts the stars waiting to enter heaven.
The King Of Pop's spirit takes control of one of the characters - and the plotline has infuriated fans of the singer, who have slammed creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone for the insensitive storyline.
One Jackson devotee rages, "It's a disgrace. Michael had a hard enough time in life - why can't they let him rest in peace."

I join all fans in their disgrace over this! Boycott "SOUTH PARK"!!!! Terribly poor, poor taste and leaves me to wonder just where the hell these writers' souls were at the time they thought THIS was funny????? Clearly...absent. Wonder where their souls will go upon their demise?

Leave MJ Alone, he was (IS)the best preformer to ever live. South Park should be ashamed for disgraceing this wonderful, beautiful man who only had good in his heart, and only wanted to better this world. MJ was the most god like person to ever bless us with the love he showed to all the world.And South Park needs to be canceled if this is aired

C'mon you guys, I'm an MJ fan and I love him too but I also believe in free speech. I might be offended if they singled out Michael but South Park pokes fun at everybody, always has and always will as long as it's on the air. A few years ago they did a satire on Michael called the "Mr Jefferson" episode and while they did poke fun at him it was actually good because they also exposed the crookedness of the Santa Barbara DA and the greed of those parents who accused him. Considering that it was South Park, they actually went pretty light on Michael in the episode. They showed Michael as being in Purgatory but so were all the other celebs in the episode. I didn't like that they made fun of his skin issue but alot of the humor is actually derived from poking fun at the tabloid stories-and the fact that people actually believe them. I am normally pretty angry like when I read trashy tabloid stories about him or I see someone putting him down on TV. But shows like South Park you just have to let it roll off your back. They thrive on offending people. You either "get it"or you're offended, and if offended, you're only giving them the reaction they want.

Leave Michael Jackson alone and let him rest in peace. His doctors were insensitive and uncaring about his life and only interested in his money. LEAVE HIM ALONE!DOT

Aww Jeese, will you leave it alone already?!!If you all really love that motherf**ker so bad why don't you all get together like the loving, grieving family that you nOw are, and go dig him up. Or form a gangster group, rob the morgue and get hime cloned. I think the place is in England.I mean, they cloned Dolly the sheep, didn't they? First it was cool to hate him n now he's dead it's cool to love him. WHAT? We're you all like scared of him at the time he was breathing? I hate humans and I hate human Nature,\f**k Off!!!

That was the best South Park ever, MJ was a joke all his adult live. That was the best representation of Wacko's personality.
