Estate Lawyers Outraged and Disgusted.

A letter written by Michael Jackson Estate lawyers, Mr. John Branca and Mr.Tony McClain, to the Discovery Channel President, David Zaslav, in which they voice their disgust over the proposed re-enactment of Michael Jackson’s autopsy, saw the light of day yesterday after it was leaked to TMZ. Within hours, fans were Tweeting, blogging and posting it across the Internet.

We already knew a letter had been written, but to read the words of the Estate lawyers; to see with our own eyes their words of horror and outrage over this program, energized fans everywhere to step up the pace in a worldwide collaborative effort to stop it from airing. It also gave us an insight into the hearts of these two men, who have been accused of many things since Michael's death. The letter clearly shows that their intentions are to protect Michael's name and legacy and in this we are united.

Although the Estate has expressed disappointment over the private letter being made public, I can't help feeling that it was a blessing. Almost 10,000 signatures now appear on the "Against Discovery" petition, and major media outlets across the world are now covering the protest, including CNN, BBC, and the New York Times. The letter has been a major boost to the campaign, but more voices need to be added. To see how you can add yours, please write your letters and sign the petitions.
