The Discovery channel's planned special, Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson, has been canceled amid controversy and public outcry from the late King of Pop's friends, fans and estate.
The show was a re-enactment of Jackson's autopsy, and was reportedly sensationalistic and not educational or revelatory.
The show had been scheduled to air several countries of western Europe and in the United Kingdom on January 13.
"Given the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week, and at the request of Michael Jackson's estate, the scheduled broadcast of the medical documentary related to Michael Jackson's official autopsy has been postponed indefinitely," Discovery Networks International said in a statement. No further comment was issued.
Would you have watched the Jackson autopsy special or did you think it was in poor taste? I certainly fall into the latter category.
