Joe Jackson Blames Michael’s Beatings on Slavery
Last night Joe Jackson was on the Larry King show. When asked if he ever beat Michael, papa Joe responded, “You know where this beating started? The beating started in the slavery days… they used to beat the slaves. And then they used to torture them. That’s where this beating started – the slavemasters. And that’s where that come from.” Sounds reasonable, right?
If I was Joe’s attorney, I would have just pointed to something behind Larry King and yelled, “Larry LOOK OVER THERE!” and when Larry turned his head, I would have grabbed Joe by the hair and dragged him out of the studio. That’s what I would have done.
