Michael Jackson is a sad man, who had a very sad life.
His Father, interviewed by the BBC:
"I whipped him with a switch and a belt. I never beat him. You beat someone with a stick."
Theroux asks Mr Jackson if he wishes his son had a partner.
When he describes partner as "boyfriend or girlfriend", Majestik says: "What are you trying to say, that Michael's gay?"
Majestik says the question is disrespectful to Joe Jackson, who later says "we don't believe in gays. I can't stand them." Mr Jackson then calls an end to the interview.
