Sky Arts is a massive, cowardly, self-censoring cunt for dropping a short comedy film starring Joseph Fiennes (white actor) as Michael Jackson (black child, white adult) because Jackson’s children are apparently a bit upset by this. Not sure why the press insist on calling them “Jackson’s children” either since none of them appear to be mixed race and therefore cannot possiby be Jackson’s biological children.
Apparently Jackson’s daughter seems to think her drug-addicted, unconvicted child molestor father is deserving of “respect” which presumably means no artistic project of any kind should ever be permitted unless it depicts her freak of a father in a flattering light. The show was called “Urban Myths” (the clue is in the title) and was a comedy – not a serious biographical drama, for fuck’s sake. You would think that any programme maker who valued freedom of speech would not be eager to set such a dangerous precedent – but then again Sky is owned by the Murdochs so automatically has an in-built degree of cuntitude.
