Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Hair To Be Turned Into Roulette Ball

Michael Jackson's hair is about to be lucky for gamblers - a clump is to be used for the manufacture of a one-of-a-kind roulette ball.
Bosses at Onlinegamblingpal.com purchased the hair, which was collected at a New York hotel following the King of Pop's stay there, at auction and now they're using it for a macabre new casino toy.
A spokesman for the company tells Nme.com, "We have decided to convert Michael Jackson's hair into a roulette ball - an appropriately unique way to immortalise a small part of a truly peerless entertainer.
"The ball itself will be made to the highest professional standards, ensuring it will be eligible for use at any licensed casino's roulette table. Indeed, considering Jackson dedicated his life to entertaining millions, the prospect of this very special ball captivating crowds at roulette tables seems like a fitting use for it."
Casinos interested in using the unique ball at their tables are being urged to get in touch with the company.

This makes my stomache churn. I wish the Jackson family could have a law passed that would prohibit the use of Michael's name or belongings, including his hair, something he ate or drank from or slept on etc. off limits to anyone looking make any money off of without the expressed written concent of the Jackson family. RIP Michael, we love you always.

Lady Robyn, the difference is....The diamond most likely would have hung around Dame Eliabeth's neck and been charished by her and the roulette ball will be rolling around a roulette wheel for more people to try and win money so they can say they won it at the roulette table where the ball was made from Michael's hair...stomache churning don't you think?

I don't have a problem w/ it. It sounds kinda cool. & I wouldn't be surprised if Michael liked the idea himself. Besides I remember there once was a similar story after is death that a lock of his hair was going to be compressed & turned into a diamond for his friend Elizabeth Taylor who joined him 2 years later. So how is this any different?

This is crappy. If MJ was a gambler this would make sense. These people are buying up anything MJ to get publicity or make a buck. Exploiting Michael is all they know how to do and unfortunately until they can no longer reap the benefits by "using" Michael Jackson likeness or name this will never stop!

What next? I can't believe how many people are still trying to make money off Michael. The poor guy can't even rest in death.
