People Still Trying To Defame the King of Pop
People's complete ignorance about Michael Jackson's vitiligo and how vitiligo sufferers must treat their vitiligo still baffles me. Even a so-called "legitimate" news distributor Fox News, and several other news media, had found it quite entertaining to still try and insult the late King of Pop (rip) by telling everyone something we were already aware of. How it has been confirmed already numerous of times (including after his autopsy) of how MJ was a sufferer of vitiligo for years. What are they trying to prove? What does this solve exactly? Yet, thousands of people still find it "scandalous" and "entertaining" without educating their selves first about the skin disease vitiligo, well-known treatments given to vitiligo patients such as benoquin and hydroquinone.
There was no reason for this to be reported, especially in order to disrespect the deceased with attempts to further defame Michael. Where was the news to spread the importance and taking into consideration of his illness? To at least educate the public about skin diseases such as vitiligo and the treatments that are available?
...majority of the media makes me ill, really. Sad that they are still trying to capitalize on his death as well as his illness that he had. Everything else they had found of little importance. Let alone, people finding it amusing to make a mockery of MJ and then gossip about how "awful" they think that he must have been just because he used prescribed products to help with his illness.
Well anyway, here is the excerpt below taken from the official FoxNews.com. Share your thoughts and reactions to what was published by the media. And if you still seem to hear a few companies claiming that Michael Jackson used their cheap-labeled lightening products...well, you know their claims are false. His were prescribed.
"Documents Reveal Skin-Whitening
Cream Found in Michael Jackson's Home AP

LOS ANGELES -- Newly unsealed search warrants detail an array of skin-whitening creams and medical items found in Michael Jackson's home after the singer's death.
The documents were unsealed Friday following a legal motion by The Associated Press. They show detectives found four bottles of anesthetic and dozens of tubes of skin-whitening cream in a cupboard in Jackson's room.
Jackson had the skin condition vitiligo that creates patches of de-pigmented skin. The skin-whitening cream can be used to cover patches of skin that have retained their color and give a more even appearance.
Detectives found 19 tubes of hydroquinone and 18 tubes of Benoquin among the drugs and medical items in the singer's room.
Jackson died in June."
