Boston Bruin Comments On MJ
December 23, 2002 – Boston Bruins wing man P.J. Stock wrote on his journal on BostonBruins.com: “I was watching TV last week and saw that whole Michael Jackson thing. I don’t know if you all saw this, but he was hanging his kid out of a window. What is that all about? I’m a huge fan of Michael Jackson and his music. I mean people will say that they don’t like him, but you have to be honest – everyone loved his music growing up and he was great for the music world. But right now, what is that guy doing? I mean he’s had enough problems as it is, having been accused of some improper actions and all, and now they have pictures of him holding a kid off of his balcony with a scarf on the kid’s head. What is he doing? He has a pet chimpanzee…go play with the pet chimpanzee. Bring the chimp out with a towel over his head or something, but don’t be bringing kids out and hanging them over the balcony. I don’t know if you’ve seen Michael’s arms, but if that kid makes one quick move he could go flying. I think Michael needs to hit the weight room before he starts picking up kids and dangling them from balconies.”
