In a stand-up move Usher Raymond reportedly walked off the set of Larry King Live when the conversation about Michael Jackson went negative. Mr. King, other guests and "experts" are among a growing list of journalist and news networks dead set on highlighting the negative aspects on the tail end of MJ's life, instead of respecting his family, children and fans who are still heavily mourning his unexpected death on Thursday June 25th.
I've always liked Usher but now I LOVE HIM for taking a stand and not participating in the media's desire to taint MJ's legacy!
Here's Usher's statement to Larry King before walking off the show:
“I realize this is your platform, but a family has lost a son, a brother, a father and they are still mourning the loss, all the other stuff will eventually come out but I can’t believe we are sitting here talking about addiction at this point!”
I feel like Usher's actions should start a MOVEMENT so I have chosen to stage a one woman boycott starting now of CNN, CNN.com, Fox News, Entertainment Tonight, E Online & MSNBC until further notice for such disgusting coverage of MJ. There's absolutely NO RESPECT for the dead anymore and it's a true shame! So thank you Usher for waking us all up...
