The Tuesday Twat(s)No. 21. Michael Jackson.
(apologies Lascivious - so many Twats, so few Tuesdays... I'll do it next week, I promise).
Wacko Jacko - BBC Online
Haven't you heard Sane - they found him NOT guilty, I hear you cry. Absolutely true. Michael Jackson was found NOT GUILTY by a jury of his peers, who found that there was not enough evidence to convict him of any of the 10 charges he faced. And that's all I have to say on the subject. But frankly, he was getting a Twat award either way, just for getting himself into that position.
Quite aside from looking and acting like a Twat, he really has done some twatish things whilst surrounding himself with Yes Men and "friends" worthy of a Twat award themselves.
After the Jordy Chandler affair, it must have become apparent to him that he was wide open to allegations of abuse due to his lifestyle. Yet did he do anything about it? No, he still shared his bed with little boys and admitted to it. And that is where his decisions regarding his friends and advisors come in. His Yes Men just told him what he wanted to hear. So who else was there to tell him that he was acting like a fruitcake? His family? Jesus look at them - it probably seems perfectly normal to them. His friends? That would be Lisa Minelli/David Guest, Liz Taylor and Uri Geller - most of whom regard planet earth as a nice place to do lunch, but they wouldn't want to live here.
And what about his actions in court? He turned up wearing jackets adorned with medals that claimed he fought on behalf of obscure European countries in WWII. I mean for fuck's sake, even Premiership football players can put a suit on for a court hearing. And what about his repeated turning up late and being "rushed to hospital" with the flu? Surely one of his "advisors" should have took him to one side and said "Michael - try not to look like a twat in front of the judge and jury. There's a good boy".
Oh well - it seems that the prosecution's star witnesses were even bigger twats - so he was found not guilty.
I'm still not letting him babysit though.
