Joe Jackson Defends Spanking Michael Jackson


An interview with Joe Jackson was filmed by over the summer and will be used in Katherine Jackson’s upcoming movie produced by Howard Mann.

The interviewer asks Joe to elaborate on past comments made by Michael as far as being abused as a child. Joe says, “I had to be like that because when raising him, in those days, so many gangs out there getting into trouble, going to jail. Most of them are dead now. He didn’t have to worry about that.”

The interviewer also asked if Joe had any regrets, “No! They tried to make a big issue when I spanked Michael or some of the kids, ya know? Just like they didn’t spank their kids when they did wrong. The media twists everything.”
