Despite his emphatic denials that he ever beat his son Michael, Joe Jackson’s infamous mug was featured in an anti-child abuse PSA in Brazil.
The ad, which reads “Domestic violence. Nobody condones it,” really needs no explanation at all. And that’s what makes it a really clever and powerful piece of advertising.
Almost nobody on the planet believes that Joe’s innocent to the charges that beat MJ all through his youth and even into adulthood. Actually, a recent report revealed that Joe may have somehow beat Michael sterile sometime after the release of Off the Wall — around the time that MJ was 21.
And, if you’re looking for more evidence… Michael left his dad out of the will, which I would classify as a pretty huge statement. If he wasn’t guilty, why would MJ dis him from beyond the grave?
