Final 12 months, we truly heard about Joseph Fiennes’ horrible profession choice to take the function of Michael Jackson. We heard that it was a bizarre TV film and that the story was primarily based on an unverified declare that instantly following 9/11, Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando rented a automobile and tried to drive throughout the nation, from New York to California. The opposite casting selections had been shocking strong – Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox as Brando, each of which match fairly properly. However Joseph Fiennes as MJ was and is… troublesome. Silly. Idiotic. Offensive. It was made worse by Joseph attempting to speak his method out of the controversy and making a hash out of it.

The trailer for the undertaking, referred to as City Myths, got here out this week and it created a firestorm. Right here’s the trailer once more:

Yeah, I nonetheless don’t know why anybody thought this could be a good suggestion. MJ’s daughter Paris Jackson tweeted this in response:

Effectively, excellent news. As a result of after the trailer dropped and everybody on this planet was like, “Yeah, this was a TERRIBLE concept,” Sky has canceled the airing of this one episode.

European pay-TV firm Sky has ditched plans to air the controversial footage from British comedy sequence “City Myths” by which Joseph Fiennes performs the singer Michael Jackson.

My questions nonetheless stay… why forged Joseph Fiennes within the first place? Why didn’t they cancel this final 12 months when the controversy first broke? Why did they really put this episode within the trailer? Was all of it promotion for this foolish present?
