Fans Irate Over Michael Jackson Autopsy Special

by at . Comments

Michael Jackson fans are not pleased with the idea of the late King of Pop's autopsy being reenacted on TV, calling the concept an "affront to human dignity."

No arguments from THG there.

The Discovery Channel is planning on broadcasting a gruesome reenactment of MJ's autopsy in the UK next month, sending many Jackson fans into a tizzy.

Fans have already gotten nearly 1,500 signatures demanding that the network nix the special, entitled simply and gruesomely Michael Jackson's Autopsy.

The fans behind the petition call the documentary offensive and add that "This type of sensational and unscrupulous reporting can only cause harm."

They conclude: “We ask the directors of the Discovery Channel programming to proceed with the outright cancellation of this indecent documentary.”

Hopefully they succeed. In much more uplifting Michael news, watch his new music video - a duet with Akon on "Hold My Hand" after the jump!
