Michael Jackson Horrified A White Actor Might Play Him In Oprah Interview (VIDEO)

Michael Jackson went on record 23 years ago in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that he’s horrified that a white actor would play him on TV. This was in reference to rumors that he had wanted a white child to play him in a Pepsi commercial.

Jackson said: “That’s the most ridiculous, horrifying story I’ve ever heard. It’s crazy. Why would I want a white child to play me? I’m a black American. I am proud to be a black American. I am proud of my race. I am proud of who I am.”

This is significant now because a British TV network has cast white actor, Joseph Fiennes, to play Michael Jackson in a 9/11 Terror Attack Road Trip Comedy titled “Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon.”

Michael Jackson’s nightmare just came true. Thanks a lot Joseph Fiennes.
