Jackson Blasts Eminem On Radio

Subscribe To:

Michael Jackson called an American radio station to express his anger at Eminem's controversial new video, which mocks child abuse allegations against him.

The video for JUST LOSE IT shows Eminem dressed as Jackson sitting on a bed with young boys jumping in the background, while he sings, "Come here, little kiddie, on my lap."

In another scene Eminem's nose falls off and his hair catches fire - a reference to an accident that occurred in 1984 when Jackson was filming a PEPSI commercial.

The outraged star - who is accused of molesting a 12 year old boy - successfully called on BLACK ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION (BET) to pull the promo from their schedules and yesterday (12OCT04) expressed his anger in person to Los Angeles radio host Steve Harvey.

He said on air, "I am very angry at Eminem's depiction of me in his video.

"I feel that it is outrageous and disrespectful. It is one thing to spoof, but it is another to be demeaning and insensitive.

"I've admired Eminem as an artist and was shocked by this.

"The video was inappropriate and disrespectful to me, my children, my family and the community at large."

Jackson also applauded BET's decision to refuse to show the video and called on others to follow suit: "It is my hope that the other networks will take BET's lead and pull it."
