Since the untimely death of his son, Joe Jackson has emerged from the ensuing media frenzy with a library of quotes that, rather than reinvigorating his image and career, instead confirm he is the insensitive, money hungry, exploitative father we all have long suspected he is. After plugging his record company at the BET awards just three days after Michael's death, Joe called a press conference where, instead of apologizing for his gross error in judgment, plugged his record company again. To the horror of mothers everywhere, Joe is currently helping his wife Katherine care for Michael's three children, and in an interview yesterday with ABC, Joe again said what none of us wanted to hear, this time pondering the future musical careers of his grandchildren. If anyone needs reminding about Joe's suspect parenting abilities, take a look at his 2003 BBC interview, in which he asserts that it only counts as a beating if you do it with a stick. Below are some of Joe Jackson's most absurd/horrific/insensitive/ignorant comments from the past few weeks, and a few from way back when:

Joseph Jackson was a failed musician who used his children to vicariously live out his dreams of fame and money. He even helped himself to groupies and fathered at least one child out of wedlock behind his wife’s back.
Notice how any mentionings of him were largely absent at the memorial service ? The more I think about those rumors that Joe may have allowed young Michael to “spend time” with powerful individuals in the music business (who also happened to be homosexual pedophiles) in order to get ahead in the industry would just about explain away everything that went wrong psychologically with Michael as he got older. One thing is certain, MJ’s kids shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near Joe.
He was not included in Michael Jackson’s will. I know that he lives in Las Vegas now. I don’t know where Katherine Jackson lives, but I’ve read that they are essentially living separate lives. I certainly hope so. It appears that she was a devoted mother who tried her best, but that she was helpless to stop what Joseph was doing.
