What's sadder than MJ dying?

People who make, share, forward or promote jokes about his (or any persons) death.

Why do people do this?

It's a tragically horrible thing to do.

I'm not laughing.

RIP Michael.

what's sadder? My best friend struggling with cancer at 38. That's what. I didn't know Michael Jackson. Liked his music, sad that anyone dies - but I don't know him.... any more than I knew some guy in San Francisco who might have died last night.......

What's sadder than MJ dying? the way it was covered, I watched 40 minutes of BBC news yesterday and they were actually following the chopper wich carried the "body" of MJ, that they repeated a zillion times, over to people on time squares, spring them with fact that Michael died, some did not even know and constantly asking how they feel about that to coax reactions from the people.
The fact that probably hundred thousands of people dropped to their knees last night crying as if their father died, and many guys who have had them surgically transformed to Michael were ready to grab the pistol, others might have seen it as jobsecurity.
Panic in newsrooms to get an item ready before the red lights go own or the presses start rolling.
The new collector boxes and dvd's will hit the shop by end next week.
Massive fuel will be used to distribute all this and the migration of people that will be the televised funeral of MJ, with hords of people many real kings would be jealous of.
That is what's sadder than MJ dying, be happy for the man they tried to recessitate that decayed body and trouble mind for over one hour.
I for one am glad for him as a cardiac arrest is a nice quick way to go.
He pretty much set the standard for the top in pop, in hits, album sales, behaviour, money spent and earned, making people go crazy.
and it's interesting that in the reports they already talked about an Era dying in the music industry and talked about the dire situation the industry is in now.

Being one of the most global public figures there is and with the erratic behaviour he has shown there's nothing inhuman about cracking jokes at this event, sometimes to poor taste, others cope with situation through humor.

I was saddened by the fact how or global media reacted to this event more so than the death as Michael is now in Peace.
His children will be deeply saddened and will remember this strange soft father figure early in their life who used to dominate the globe and made millions of people react in a very hystarical way.
and might have a chance of a more normal life if our culture would be a bit more sane.

The only footage I watched was when the ambulance was leaving his home, and then out of no where paparazzi are pushing their way through the medical team to get photos of him after his death. It disgusted me and I had to turn it off. Definitely a sad day in the music world and my condolences go out to his family and friends.

Correct me if I am wrong, but that era ended about 15 years ago, maybe more. I think that guy died a long time ago.

Good pop songs, good business mind. Overcame everything thrown at him since childhood. Much respect to that. Respect to the art as well.

We created that monster that acted that way. Look at us now, crying and buying stuff. Good god that's horrible.

We are the monsters.

No wonder he was so screwed up. Hopefully the kids can change their name to something normal and live like normal people and not end up the same.

If a movie producer dies, do people just appreciate the movie, or do they scream and cry and go to the house and give flowers?

Celebrate the art, not the person. All those people crying and writing notes scare the heck out of me. Good lord we are primitive.

15 people died the same day from a bombing. They never lived in a mansion, racked up half a billion in debt, or lived some weird fantasy life.

I would say lets mourn them but instead lets just mourn humanity for being so damned backwards and weird.

Go watch TV so you can see Jon and Kate and MJ and FF.

I sure would have loved to watch him track the truck loads of vocals he would do for just one song.

Truly a genius artist that has inspired me more times than I can say.

It's a shame that our technology has advanced at such a rapid pace but we still behave like a bunch of guys with sticks and rocks.

RIP MJ

I am middle of the road about the whole MJ thing , kinda "meh"

I am quite shocked to see posts (like the above) on GearSlutz that make the average 14 y/o gaming forum look mature .
What next ?
Will we have gear reviews that declare the product "failzorz" .

You think a reminder that MJ was a friggin pedophile is immature?
I'm sorry. I know he was likely one of the most talented musicians that had ever lived and all..
But I think the fact that he gave little kids alcohol and climbed in bed with them overshadows any talent he may have had.
But hey that's just my opinion.
I'm also the guy who can't make himself go see any film made by Roman Polanski, due to the fact that he anally rapped a little girl and fled the country to avoid going to prison for it.

We sure are willing to forgive people an awful lot if they can keep us entertained!

YA..no ****, I must have seen the picture of him dead in the ambulance with a bag in his mouth while getting cpr 75 times yesterday in a half hour...what a bunch of ****...I so wish that these media monsters all go to hell in the end...3 sad little kids that have to see their dead fathers body being worked on every 30 seconds on tv...Lets see if they do it to the ceo of General Electric when someone finally gets tired of their **** and blows their face off!! ughhh I hate these ass holes!!

Guess he really couldn't pull off those gigs.

He really should have had a better physician, from what the crew said he was shattered after every rehearsal....that and the skinny frame he held as well as him being 50 was gonna certainly strain his heart. He hadn't performed in how long?

18 year olds have died of cardiac arrest, that is sadder.

Maybe there was such a halo around him nobody could say ''this could damage your health''....but it's different when he IS probably the most famous person of all time right after Jesus.
