Michael Jackson Autopsy Documentary Pulled From Discovery Channel

Earlier this month, a petition to stop the Discovery Channel from broadcasting a reenactment of Michael Jackson's autopsy, Michael Jackson's Autopsy: What Really Killed Michael Jackson, made the rounds, garnering thousands of signatures and the approval of the Jackson estate. Previously scheduled to air January 13, the documentary has now been pulled. A rep for the Discovery Channel said Friday, "Given the commencement of legal proceedings beginning next week, and at the request of Jackson's estate, the broadcast of the medical documentary has been postponed indefinitely." Proving, once more, that few things in the world are as powerful as a die-hard Michael Jackson fan. Do not try to pull one over on these people. You will not win. [TMZ]
