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 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.
