[b]At Least 300 Michael Jackson Fans Attend Support Rally in NYC[/b] Source: Team MJJsource Contrary to many published reports, there were conservatively 300 Michael Jackson fans attending the support rally yesterday. The rally took place at 45th and Broadway in New York City. After reading these reports, members of the media have conveyed their concern that the reported fan count was highly inaccurate from the actual number of fans that attended. It is unfortunate that the genuine support and dedicated efforts of Michael Jackson’s loyal fans have been unacknowledged. It is our hope that the Associated Press and others will correct their error. This would be appropriate, out of respect for the many fans that took the time to organize and attend the event. Michael Jackson fans demonstrated over MTV’s refusal to stop airing the Eminem video that demeans Michael Jackson. Unlike MTV, Black Entertainment Television (BET) stopped running it last month, at Mr. Jackson’s request. In a phone call to Geraldo Rivera at the rally, Mr. Jackson stated regarding Eminem and the video, “It’s demeaning and disrespectful,” Jackson said. “And I also want to make it clear that it’s not just about Michael Jackson… but about a pattern of disrespect that he has shown to our community. He needs to stop it, and he needs to stop it now.” Speaking of his deep appreciation for his fans, Michael Jackson said, “Its because of my fans that I am calling in today…. I feel that I have the best fans in the world… I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart…. I love them so so much.” Geraldo Rivera also reiterated his strong support for Mr. Jackson when he said, “Michael, let me just say that I support you because I believe you are getting a raw deal not just by Eminem but in a lot of other aspects of life that I don’t need to mention…” Source: http://www.mjjsource.com/index.php/news/at-least-300-michael-jackson-fans-attend-support-rally-in-nyc
