Michael Jackson Fans Are Killing Themselves in Grief

Michael Jackson Fans Are Killing Themselves in Grief-photo

Some of Michael Jackson's fans are taking their devotion way too far.

Sky News quotes Gary Taylor, owner of Jackson fan mega-site MMJCommunity.com, as saying that as many as a dozen MJ fans have killed themselves in grief since the music giant's untimely death last Thursday at the age of 50.

"I know there has been an increase, I now believe the figure is 12," Taylor estimates. "It is a serious situation that these people are going through but Michael Jackson would never want this. He would want them to live."

In light of this growing epidemic, Rev. Jesse Jackson has released a video on YouTube urging Jackson's fans not to "self-destruct."

"This is a time when hearts are heavy. There is great pain but great cause to celebrate Michael's life," Jackson—no relation to the deceased singer—says. "It made Michael happy saying 'We Are The World'. Don't self destruct."

Check out the video below:

You heard the man, people. Don't do anything rash.

    Shawn Lee Henning who went back to the states under a muslim name. But when he got arrested they finally found out his true identity the San Diego police found out he is a wanted fugitive in numerous states such as California for probation violations, drug charges and other mics charges, then in Arizona for drug charges, then in Utah for drug charges and indecency with a minor charges and in Texas for bond jumping, drug charges and indecency with a minor. He has numerous charges. So why are people promoting a pedophile child molester, drug dealer and a muslim??????

    Your statement is complete garbage, MJ WAS NOT A DISGRACE, YOU ARE A DISGRACE, what do you know about the man, he went away from the USA BECAUSE THE COUNTRY NEARLY KILLED HIM, he should never have returned, he was happy living away in Ireland, and Bahrain, you have no idea about him, you just listen to the media garbage, he was the kindest most generous human being ever, WHO NEVER TOUCHED CHILDREN, i have been a fan of his for well over 40 years, I believed in him then as I do now.

    Everyone has made mistakes in life. Maybe your favorite artists(for those whose favorite artist is not MJ) has made mistakes as big as Jackson or even bigger. But they've just bought their way out of it. Listen guys, I know not everyone likes Michael Jackson. I know some people are crazy enough about him to give up their lives because he died and some just hate him. In my opinion, Michael Jackson was the best artist there has ever been. I don't need to say what all he's done, everyone knows that. Everyone has an idea of his greatness. But people, you just need to relax. For those who gave their lives- Guys, I love Michael Jackson too. I grew up listening to his music but you can't just commit suicide for him! He wouldn't want that at all! He taught us love and encouraged us to live in peace. He was feel very sad if he would get to know now that his fans are giving their lives for him. For Michael Jackson haters- People, you all are aware that's he's the most successful entertainer of all time. You know that he was full of talent and its very, very difficult for someone to reach at such a level. In fact, no one has ever done things as great as Michael(his songs and music videos, philanthropy, broke records). Now there were rumors about him, and they've been proven wrong in the court. But its up to you whether to believe them or not. It's okay for you not to like him. But at least don't hurt other's feelings by insulting him. You know that the world loves him. If you really hate him so much, why can't you just keep it do yourself and don't talk about him? Why do you need to start a fight on Michael Jackson with the people who like him? And finally, please learn to think about the positive side of a person. Every coin has two sides. Focus on the brighter side, you'll be happier and people will like you more.

    Sooo, what you're trying to say is that you're pro child molestation? Got it. What this says to me is that you only scimmed over the top of what was said and done and why he was found not guilty. Are you trying to insinuate that the American Justice System is flawed greatly? Do you hate America, or are you a Communist? This is your mindset. I, however, don't impulsively make assumptions, unlike you do. I am not fooled by your grammer--I can point out that you are closeminded, and I pity you.

    I love Michael Jackson, and I love what he stood for. You can say he stood for child molestation, and that he was a freak. But the guy clearly had some psychological damage and still held true and strong. He had great visions, was a superb entertainer, and had a heart filled with love. Do not bash a man who promoted love and peace-those of you that do, are the source of destruction. Believe what you may, but none of us truly knew him; remember him for the facts, "It's all for love."

    Wow, These comments here are truly sad, People actually are happy that fans of Michael Comited Suicide and yet have the nerveto Talk about some alleged abuse case against Michael that he was proven Not guilty of, do you people do anything before you type your response? How can you post happiness over someones suicide and then condem someone over a case you obviously are clueless about. Please people use some common sense and think before you type a comment unless you are comfortable with showing you are a complete uneducated heartless sheep.

    I agree that the best way to deal with MJ’s death is to celebrate his life, not commit suicide. We have his music and his videos and that is a great gift he gave to us. There is also his legacy that we have a responsibility to protect because we are enjoying his gift of music. To all you people who have posted on here calling him a freak or a child molester I have to say that you are stating this out of pure ignorance and you should be ashamed of yourselves for being so small-minded. Please do the intelligent thing and actually do some RESEARCH before you call him these things or dare bash him. MJ was found NOT GUILTY ON ALL 14 COUNTS. There is NO EVIDENCE he ever molested a single child. He has also done a lot of charity work and has given more of himself than any other pop star. He is also in the guiness book of world records for his charity work, supporting over 39 charities. He used to visit children’s hospitals and orphanages when he went on tour bringing toys, if a child needed a liver transplant he would pay for it. What about Heal The World Foundation and that wonderful song from the 80s We Are The World which Michael helped organize to provide hunger relief in third world countries? I can site sources for people to do research to find out what kind of man MJ truly was. MJ was a musical genius and a humanitarian, not a criminal. His accusers were extortionists trying to get rich quick. If you are so unwilling to do this research then please refrain from saying anything at all about MJ if you can’t say something nice. I can only guess that you are calling MJ these names because it makes you feel big. But to say these negative things without any research to back it up is nothing but ignorance and stupidity. Here are some research sources.

    You need to calm down, I don't know how YOU feel about MJ's reputation, but no one can deny MJ's Influence on all the top artist, producers, and choreographers today. Hell yeah he was nutty, weird, and damn sure odd and unusual. And with all that he was also the Greatest entertainer in the world. THATS the reputation he's left with, not to mention being the first black artist to be aired on MTV, Guinness world records for most successful video, most Grammy awards, Entertainer of the Decade, most Successful Concert Series, Most number 1 hits on Billboard's 100, dude I can go on, these people killing themselves had problems way before MJ died. The press is gonna say what they want, and so will everyone else. Thats no excuse to go jumping off of buildings, MJ is not God, life will MOVE...ON... He is a rusty fag duh! People dont understand he was LOVED I MEAN LOVED more than anybody could ever be loved by millions its like their parent died it hurts and the fact the world wasnt ready for such perfection they still choose to judge him and treat him like sh*t as if hes not dead.

    dude.. completely agreed.. If you're that dumb to end your life over a pop singer dying then i agree, the world is probably better off without you. It is sad that he died but on the other hand, he's been a freak for awhile. The last cool thing he did was come out with the Black and White album and the CD's before those. He was the laughingstock of a lot of people for quite a long time. "don't you climb trees?" come the f*ck on. all in all, Completely talented but made a disgrace of himself over the past 10+ years!!

    I Love Micheal He seriously is a huge part of my life I will Never forget him. I since curruption in his death though and feel as though he tried to warn us with the song "Morphine " From the Blood on the Dance floor album where he says "Relax this wont hurt you before I put it in close your eyes and count to ten. Don’t cry, I won’t convert you. There’s no need to dismay, close your eyes and drift away. Dimeral. Dimeral, Oh god he’s taking Dimeral, Dimeral, Dimeral, Oh God he’s taking Dimeral. He’s tried, hard to convince her. To remodel what he had. Today he wants it twice as bad. Don’t Cry I won’t resent you. Just a day you had, distrust. Today he’s taking TWICE as much. Dimeral, Dimeral Oh God he’s taking Dimeral...." the medication "Dimeral" is a pain killer medication that has been found in his system ... according to CNN.

    When people think of Michael Jackson, they don't think of child molestation!!!! They think of the KING OF POP, AN ICON, A LEGEND....this world is F*^CKED UP, but I think most of us have reflected on the positive aspects of Michael's life, not the media battered and horrible accusations of the negative aspect. What he did with his time on this earth will never be matched, if it is possible to be larger than life, Michael Jackson was. EVERY STRAND OF DNA IN HIS ENTIRE BODY HAD TALENT IN IT!!!

    People can be so heartless. As a teacher, I witness children cope with so much, and I wonder how they'll be treated in life. It pains me to see so many people judge each other and with such extreme anger. This just reminds me that I need to not just teach the curriculum, but also how to treat others and how to cope with hate.
