Why does Twitter worship Michael Jackson so much?

If any other celebrity behaved like him today they’d be calling for his arrest. I don’t get it.

I just can’t stop loving you 😩

Twitter's not a monolith, tons of people there (including me) have criticized him

A lot of the worship is coming from teens and young adults who didn't live through the child molestation scandals

R2 “ A lot of the worship is coming from teens and young adults who didn't live through the child molestation scandals”

Which is crazy to me because Gen Z is quick to call out other celebrities for being predators/groomers/creeps/etc.

German fraus. Not kidding. They're fucking crazy about Michael Jackson.

Take heart, OP, Twitter has an overblown profile in America and the first world. Just remember, 80% of the human beings on this planet don't have Twitter, have never seen Twitter and it has no influence on their lives whatsoever.

It's useful to bear this in mind whenever you happen to come across some dumb as shit thing from Twitter.

by Anonymousreply 4February 18, 2023 11:14 PM

especially since he confessed in song:

I want to love you pretty young thing

Pretty young? He wasn’t kidding!

by Anonymousreply 5February 18, 2023 11:19 PM

He was. I loved him so much. I’m do lucky that I grew up listening to his music at the height of his career.

by Anonymousreply 6February 18, 2023 11:27 PM

Couldn’t stand him then & especially can stand him now. I’m appalled he’s still on the radio. Much less Broadway.

I’m so sick of reading about Michael Jackson. There’s so much propaganda posts about him on Reddit and how he totally didn’t abuse children.

by Anonymousreply 9March 4, 2023 4:18 AM

OP, why are you even on Twitter? It's a fucking shitshow.

by Anonymousreply 10March 4, 2023 4:24 AM

Leaving aside the pedo stuff he peaked at 12. While he was always a great performer, his solo stuff is overrated and doesn't hold up IMO. When I listen to my favorite 80s pop and R&B he's not even on the list. Give me the Gap Band, Prince and Electro for starters.

Ignore the unfunny Bill Cosby bits - this special shows the Five at their best.

I don't Twitter.

Yet somehow, my life is still complete.

by Anonymousreply 12March 4, 2023 4:39 AM

Deplorables thrive on Twitter these days. They know he was a pedo, so they create these posts to trigger the libs who are still on Twitter.

by Anonymousreply 13March 4, 2023 4:57 AM

Anyone who isn't in a massive state of denial has left his fandom.

I’m Glad he’s dead . He can’t hurt anymore children

by Anonymousreply 15March 4, 2023 5:36 AM

Because he’s a fucking legend!

by Anonymousreply 16March 4, 2023 6:46 AM

You'd have to be deaf dumb and blind not to see what he did.

It shouldn't surprise me to see how celebrated some of the worst people are, but it still does.

by Anonymousreply 20March 4, 2023 11:53 PM

Gen Z and millennials worship MJ's pedo ass. I've noticed that if you call him out on twitter, you get lots of hate from the woke crowd, yet white celebs who date younger girls (not children) like Leo di Caprio are called out by this same crowd all the time.

by Anonymousreply 21March 5, 2023 12:22 AM

Even on here there are morons who will defend him relentlessly - that one called the Train Station Troll, for instance.

by Anonymousreply 22March 5, 2023 12:27 AM

Because he was black............and white.

Chinese propaganda.

OP, if you are tired of him being worshipped on twitter, why do you need to start ANOTHER thread about him here? And why are people here talking about him like he's still alive? He's dead you idiots. You all sound fucking senile.

by Anonymousreply 25March 5, 2023 2:52 AM

I read this and thought you were talking about Sondheim.

R25 He’s physically dead but he’s very much still present in the culture. He has a successful Broadway musical and will be getting a biopic soon.

by Anonymousreply 28March 5, 2023 11:04 AM

R21 That’s what I don’t understand. They call Leo a predator on there all the time because he dates women under 25 but are perfectly fine with MJ’s close friendships and sleepovers with young boys?

by Anonymousreply 29March 5, 2023 11:07 AM

r28 his work is still present in pop culture and his estate is has authorized a biopic. *HE* does not have anything, he's DEAD. Get a grip.

R30 He’s dead but his alleged victims aren’t.

by Anonymousreply 31March 5, 2023 11:13 AM

MJ’s estate and die hard fans have successfully smeared his accusers all over the internet. This is one of the few spaces on the internet that believes MJ is guilty.

by Anonymousreply 32March 5, 2023 11:14 AM

Reddit straight up removes posts that insinuates MJ’s guilt, like this one.

How MJ isn’t canceled makes no sense.

So many people today have zero critical thinking skills.

It’s like they’re not even human. Just spoon fed BS zombies.

It's the OJ Simpson Syndrome. If Jacko had been white he'd have been reviled and abandoned way back in the 90s.

Because his music is fantastic, OP, and he was an amazing dancer.

His music was good in the 80s and never again. Gross pedo with pedo apologist fans.

I finally joined Facebook during lockdown. I’m not on it everyday, have no profile other than a made up name, and only use it to browse. For some reason a couple of months ago I started to receive loads of Whacko posts in my newsfeed. At first I just assumed that they were all from one group, but then realised there are dozens of these groups. They all have weird names like Kingdom Of Magic, most of the members seem to be black Africans, and god and religion features strongly.

They are all completely bat shit crazy, “you was too beautiful and pure for this world” “you had the innocence of a child that the corrupt world couldn’t understand”. Crap like this. All of the pics of Whacko are heavily filtered and photoshopped so he looks like a cartoon, instead of a ghoul. I sometimes reply to posts saying things like Michael licked young boys asses, that kind of stuff. They mostly reply by saying that that’s what my daddy did to me when I was young and I enjoyed it.

They are fucking weirdo’s, and mostly seem to be younger people. It really is quite scary.

by Anonymousreply 52March 16, 2023 2:03 PM

Yes, Gen Z love Jacko especially black kids.
