Jermaine Jackson Announces his Brother's Death - My thoughts are with his family....
Edited on Fri Jun-26-09 11:09 AM by Triana
You can tell Jermaine's heart is heavy as lead and that he's on the verge of tears.

:cry:

The Jackson family was disordered and I believe abusive in some ways, to their kids. Nonetheless the loss of Michael has to be hitting them VERY hard. I feel so sad for them.

5. It is.
My aunt was the first sibling on my mothers side to pass on. No one never thought she would be the first because she was 2nd youngest of 8 and healthy.


Jermaine has defended Michael so much over the years, and this is hard on him and his family. They have lived a hard personal life. :(

Thoughts and prayers are with them all. :grouphug:

3. A jury found him innocent. Take your hate elsewhere.
Edited on Fri Jun-26-09 11:13 AM by Triana
PeeEss: And that does NOT negate the sadness of the loss to his family.

Get over yourself. It's NOT all about YOU and your hate.

9. I never said it was about me
And yes, he was found innocent by a jury. What about the folks he paid off? Was OJ innocent? I'm just saying that all of the good stuff aside, he will always carry the negativity of being a pedophile. Sorry, thats just the way I see it.

10. And disagreement is not hate. Don't be so quick to use that term, as it lessens it's meaning

13. You chose to come in here and shit inside a thread about how hard this is for MJ's family...
Edited on Fri Jun-26-09 02:07 PM by Triana
...and THAT is not hate?

What are you DISAGREEING with? That we feel for his family and how hard this is for them (ie: for somebody ELSE, NOT YOU)?

IF NOT then WHY are you in this thread -- if not to shit YOUR HATE in it and have it recognized? Your ACTIONS are those of narcissistic hatred more than any "disagreement" with the OP.

If that were NOT the case, you'd have NEVER posted what you posted in this thread. Your lies tell themselves ; your pretenses are obvious and transparent.

You didn't HAVE to say it was about you. Your ACTIONS did it for you.

16. Wow, this MJ thing really has you upset.
Focus some of that energy on something more productive. You may feel alot better. Sorry to have offended you, but thats how I feel about MJ. A great entertainer and a pop culture icon who liked little boys. Sorry, but thats the way it is.

21. Mighty hypocritical of YOU telling ME to focus my energy on "something more productive"
Edited on Fri Jun-26-09 02:58 PM by Triana
You need to stop projecting your own crap onto other people, hating, stirring up shit, and take your own advice. If you are so upset yourself about Mr. Jackson that you have to defacate in other people's threads about him, I think you need to do some refocusing of your own. Shit in your toilet, not in other people's yards. Narcissistic Neanderthal. Go beat your chest somewhere else.

22. Your overt overuse of profanity and hate leads me to believe
that this is a very emotional issue for you. As I will never understand the emotional attachment of starstruck fans to celebrities, I will let it go and allow you to deal with it in your own way. Good luck, and I hope you can move on. Good day.

25. Nice try, but I think I got the last word in there!
And I was trying to allow you an out without losing face. Go ahead and ignore my posts, but that doesn't change the fact that you come off like a crazed fan who waits outside the courthouse to see MJ show up late to his pedophilia trial in pajamas.

19. And for the record, he was found "not guilty", just like OJ.
Was OJ innocent too?

11. Why don't you just hide this thread if it bothers you so much.
And stop telling other people what to do.

12. Funny, as you just did the same to me
Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the biggest hypocrite of them all? The last time I checked, this was a forum for all of us to express our opinions, isn't it?

18. It's just in good fun!
You and I agree on many subjects, from what I've read in your posts in the past. Its always ok to agree to disagree, right?

20. It sure is...
you could cut the snark in my house with a knife at times. We have three teens and they are raising me awfully quickly, although many times I FAIL.
