La Toya Jackson Demands MSNBC Yank Dr. Conrad Murray Documentary

by at . Comments

La Toya Jackson is irate over the documentary featuring Dr. Conrad Murray to air on MSNBC. She's demanding it be pulled out of respect for her brother Michael.

The late pop singer's sister says the controversial documentary, which will air tomorrow, essentially gives "a murderer and convicted felon ... celebrity status."

Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, not murder, but MJ's estate and fans are still understandably upset about the Conrad Murray documentary.

La Toya Picture

La Toya fired off a letter to MSNBC, claiming it's outrageous that Michael cannot defend himself against Murray's claims, of which there are apparently many.

Some of Murray's comments about MJ in the film, taken during the run-up to his trial, which ended in a guilty verdict earlier this week, are extremely critical.

La Toya says Murray will profit from "homicidal acts that left my family without a brother, my niece and nephews without a father, my parents without a son ..."

La Toya wants the network to shelve it, but MSNBC has no plans to, and insists that Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team didn't get any money, directly or indirectly.

There are reports out today that MSNBC funded Murray's legal defense in return for the rights to air the documentary, but TMZ sources say that is simply untrue.

In fact, Murray's lead attorney Ed Chernoff is about to leave the case - possibly even before an appeal is filed - because the Murray case almost put him under.

Murray reportedly got $1 for his participation in the documentary, but there could be loopholes, such as a side deal to give him share in profits from the show.

La Toya can be heard cheering the verdict below. Classy.

La Toya Jackson has had a less than happy life, so perhaps she should not be judged too harshly. After escaping from her abusive husband (who had been hired by her father to manage her career) she claimed that it was Jack Gordon who had forced her to support the accusations of child molesting aimed against her brother. This may be true, but in the course of supporting those accusations, she did raise a legitimate question when she asked whether it was appropriate for an adult male to be taking other people’s children into his bed when he was not related to them or their parents.

MJ GOT AWAY WITH MOLESTING CHILDREN. THE DOC IS GETTING BLAMED, FOR WHAT MJ DID TO HIMSELF. LET THE DOC, PROFIT FROM THE DOCUMENTARY. IT'S BAD ENOUGH, HE HAS TO GO TO PRISON, AND CANNOT PRACTICE MEDICINE, ANYMORE. ALL THOSE YEARS OF STUDY, DOWN THE DRAIN, BECAUSE OF MANIPULATIVE, ADDICT.

Latoya seizes every opportunity she can to be seen. Back in the mid 1990's she held press conferences every chance she got to discredit Michael,and she was "the voice" who really condemned MJ publicly, and then claimed that her then husband/manager pimp Jack Gordon made her do it. Instead of making a Name for herself, she is constantly looking for a reason to be a Jackson and become vocal to the media. Of course by Now, you would think that the family would hire a spokesperson to get their messages out instead of Latoya putting herself in the middle of MSNBC'S programing.To millions of people, Michael continues to be a News story, something that Latoya hasn't been for years. She Needs to take some hang gliding lessons and get lost!!

La toya likes to toya with the media. Is she not the one that betrayed her baby brother Michael. Is she not the sister of the J5's that at this time are feeding of Michael's children. Is she not part of the family members that are exploiting Michael with all the tributes. Thank God for the executors of Michaels estate.
