Michael Jackson outraged by new Eminem video, asks for it to be pulled from the air

NEW YORK - Michael Jackson (news) is reportedly angered by the way he is portrayed in rapper Eminem (news - web sites)'s recently released video "Just Lose It." The pop singer is said to be so upset that he has asked networks to remove the video from their rotations.

"Michael Jackson is very angry. He feels that Eminem has crossed the line," Jackson representative Ramone Bain told the Daily News in Tuesday editions. "Michael is calling on all networks to pull the video."

In the video, Eminem appears dressed mockingly as Jackson with a group of boys in the background, jumping. Then he sings the lyric in reference to Jackson's child molestation allegations: "Come here little kiddie, on my lap. Guess who's back with a brand new rap..."

Later in the video Eminem also ridicules plastic surgery done on Jackson's nose, and an accident in which Jackson's hair caught on fire while filming a Pepsi commercial in 1984.

So far, Black Entertainment Television has agreed to pull the video, and was expected on Tuesday to announce that it is removing the video.

"Michael feels the video is disrespectful and offensive...it's one thing to spoof someone, it's another to be completely insensitive and disrespectful," said Bain.

It's called being in the public eye, Michael.

I'm not defending Micheal.... he needs a lot of growing up to do!

But isn't Eminem sick of this rediculing others already? I sure am! So much for being original.... it's been done to death even by him!

I agree! it's like Em has no ideas but to use every one he possibly can to be the "Butt of his raps"
The video is funny though

I like the song...but I saw the video, and it was pretty excessive on the Michael bashing. I was wondering if Michael was gonna speak out against it. I'm not a big Michael fan these days, but I don't blame him one bit.

eh, the video was totally unoriginal. Didn't Em do the SAME thing in two other videos -- ya know, the dressing up as someone else nonsense? by now, its boring.

Im not a fan of Michael, but since hes a human being, like the rest of us, he deserves respect as a human being. There is a line, and Eminem crossed it on this one, even if it is funny. Oh screw it, what is the world coming to.

I think they should pull the video because it's just like all of Skittle's other videos. All he does is rag on other people. And the song is TERRIBLE! 15 year old boys will buy anything.
