M.J. died a few hours ago from cardiac arrest. They couldn't revive him! I can't believe it!

Re: Dudes! Michael Jackson is Dead! Really!

I was driving home from the mall and I heard it on the news, I was literally thinking "Is this a joke? It's probably a joke." But they sounded pretty serious, and it'd be really terrible if they joked about that. I put in my casette tape of Thriller on for the car ride home in memory of Michael Jackson. And Farrah Fawcet died, and Ed Mcman! Death comes in 3's.

Re: Dudes! Michael Jackson is Dead! Really!

I texted a girl from work and told her about MJ and she's like "Yeah I know. He was a freak though, he molested little boys." First of all, was that proven? I don't remember it being proven, even if it was, you should forget about that for now. He died, I'm not saying that molesting little boys is okay, it's definitely not. But really? How insensitive can people be?

Re: Dudes! Michael Jackson is Dead! Really!

i know right, thats exacly what i read he did this and tht, and im like for gods sake, he jsut passed away and this is the best you can say, people can be insensitive and its wrong, any of us can get accused for things we didnt do, and our worst nightmare is to still have that tag when we pass away, i wouldnt wish that on anyone and its jsut wrong..  did u give her a earfull i hope you did, becuase thats a horrible thing to say

Re: Dudes! Michael Jackson is Dead! Really!

Well, I didn't say anything back because I work with this girl and I don't want any fights at work. Trust me though, I'd love to give her a mouthfull.

Re: Dudes! Michael Jackson is Dead! Really!

omgsh!  i heard it 2!  its soo crazy!  i heard that the big news stations and stuff r'nt reporting it yet cause they think its like a publicity scam or something!

Re: Dudes! Michael Jackson is Dead! Really!

This is a very sad passing. May Michael Jackson rest in peace. I feel so bad for his family, and my heart goes out to them.

Re: Dudes! Michael Jackson is Dead! Really!

I have never really been a michael Jackson fan but I heard the news this morning and at my softball game at like seven tonight I looked in the sky and there was a cloud that was shaped like a J.  I showed the girl next to me and she said yeah like J for jill, who was batting at the time.  Then I look to the left of the J and there is a M!!!!! I was like OMG look there is a MJ.  It was so creepy
