Well then.

But Joseph Fiennes looks SO MUCH like Jackson … oh wait.

You have to wonder who thought this was EVER a good idea? Especially with the social climate of the world today. Did Sky Arts really think they wouldn’t get pushback from casting a white guy to play Michael Jackson?


Of course if they had cast a black man the reaction may have been similar? Let’s face it, people have lost their ability to laugh at almost anything anymore, even when it’s meant to be funny.

It was predominantly Jackson’s daughter, Paris, who took issue with Fiennes as the actor playing her dad.

Incredibly offended. The premise itself is pretty stupid as well, just sayin’.

Fiennes should honestly thank them.

Not so much. Well they are when they’re in a room full of their peers talking about how tough it is to be in the entertainment industry.
