Michael Jackson show CANCELLED after backlash from his family

Sky Arts have cancelled an episode of their highly anticipated television movie Urban Myths, which featured Michael Jackson, after the trailer received major backlash from fans. 

Paris Jackson was adamantly against the casting of Joseph Fiennes as her father, Michael Jackson, in the upcoming flick.

“I’m so incredibly offended by it, as I’m sure plenty of people are as well,” Paris responded on Twitter, when asked for her thoughts on the portrayal.

"It makes me want to vomit."

The TV movie was set to focus on an alleged road trip across America that Michael Jackson took with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando, after 9/11.

However, people were outraged by the depiction of MJ in the TV movie.

"We have taken the decision not to broadcast Elizabeth, Michael And Marlon, a half-hour episode from the Sky Arts Urban Myths series, in light of the concerns expressed by Michael Jackson's immediate family.

We set out to take a light-hearted look at reportedly true events and never intended to cause any offence. Joseph Fiennes fully supports our decision," read a statement from Sky Arts. 

Paris took to Twitter to express her surprise and gratitude at the fact that the opinion of the family was taken into consideration. 

Michael's nephew, TJ, also took to Twitter to thank people for helping to preserve Michael's dignity. 

The trailer of the film has been set to private on YouTube.
