Michael Jackson (circa: 1990)

While the whole world was hit hard by the King of Pop’s death, 12 of his biggest fans were hit the hardest. Apparently, they took the whole “I love MJ to death” thing a bit too far…

According to Gary Taylor, founder of an online MJ fanclub, many of them could not cope with the sudden passing of Michael Jackson and ended their own lives.

“I know there has been an increase (in deaths), I now believe the figure is 12. It is a serious situation that these people are going through but Michael Jackson would never want this. He would want them to live.”

Meanwhile, Rev. Jesse Jackson has recorded a message to Jackson’s fans, begging them not to “self-destruct”.

“This is a time when hearts are heavy. There is great pain but great cause to celebrate Michael’s life. It made Michael happy saying ‘We Are The World’. Don’t self-destruct. We fall down sometimes, we get back up. That’s the right thing to do. In Michael’s name let’s live together as brothers and sisters and not die apart as fools.”

We here at GOT send our prayers to the families of those in mourning. We ask those in a depressed state over the loss of MJ to talk to someone! There are many places that can help you through this hard time. Let us celebrate his life and his accomplishments and not dwell on his death. And above all, please … DO NOT take your own life over someone else’s death. We love MJ too, but damn…
