The people who were very close to Michael Jackson and who are mature enough not to be irresponsible with their words have conducted themselves with respect in the wake of an incredibly difficult time for the world. Rev Al Sharpton and Gladys Knight are a few.
However, while watching news coverage today I have seen people like Deepak Chopra and Jackson-hanger-on Brian Oxman who have both behaved in an unacceptably irresponsible way, and they should both be slapped in the mouth for creating/spreading unconfirmed and speculative comments about Jackson’s death.
Oxman, who apparently never met a camera he didn’t like, started not even 24 hours after Jackson’s death.
Michael’s body ain’t even in the ground yet and they got their happy a$ses in front of a camera talking about something neither one of them know anything about.
