A Sky TV comedy featuring Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson has been axed following major criticism from the late superstar's family and fans.
Secondly, let's just say the portrayal was done correctly, black people come in ALL shades. They could easily have cast a light skinned black man or fair complexioned biracial and used make-up for the finish. Regardless of MJ's physical appearance in later life, he was still a black man who always spoke proudly of his roots.
MJ's daughter Paris Jackson criticises the portrayal:
@TheMJCast i'm so incredibly offended by it, as i'm sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want to vomit.— Paris-Michael K. J. (@ParisJackson) January 11, 2017
