Jacko’s Dad: I Never Beat Him!

joejacksonIf you’ve read any extensive interview with Michael Jackson, you probably share my nausea at the display of self-serving bull that Michael’s father Joe Jackson handed Larry King last night. (Video here.) Other people are going to seize upon Joe’s accusations of foul play involved in Michael’s death on Larry King Live. I’d just like to zero in on what Joe said when King asked about the “many” reports “over the years” that he’d “physically assaulted” his son. “That’s a buncha bull-s,” said Joe, saying, “I wish I could say the s-word… I never did.”
Joe’s denials that he ever beat his son have been repeatedly contradicted by Michael’s own words, including those in Michael’s autobiography Moonwalk, in which he wrote of his father, “He would beat you… he would hit me so hard.”
