Michael Jackson Fans Protest Discovery Channel’s Autopsy Special

At least 1,500 Michael Jackson fans are petitioning to stop the Discovery Channel from broadcasting a reenactment of Michael Jackson's autopsy, Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson, scheduled to air January 13 in the U.K., calling the special "an affront to human dignity." An online petition states, "We ask the directors of the Discovery Channel programming to proceed with the outright cancellation of this indecent documentary." Though Discovery Channel is probably expecting high ratings, Michael Jackson fans can be pretty extreme, so this beef is still anyone's game. [TMZ via E!]
