Bette Midler
« on: July 06, 2018, 05:17:46 pm »
Bette recently stated that she was relieved Joe Jackson had died in so many words. She says she hated every minute he lived. That wasn't nice to say. What do you think? Freedom of speech? Evil? Or should she had just kept that comment to herself?

I have no idea why she would say such a thing.   I've always loved Bette Midler's music and her outspoken nature.  But this is one of those times she should have considered how it would have made his survivors feel.   She probably should not have tweeted her feelings about the man.   That's one of the issues with Twitter and other social media sites, people will post their feelings without thinking.

Did she know him personally?  Did he do something to her?  It's weird to say she hated every minute he lived like he actually did something to her.

Allegedly he molested his daughters - at least two of them. It is alleged that he set his son Michael up to meet "business men" when Michael was still a kid/teen and that he would leave Michael alone with these grown men. One of his brothers (I forgot which one) said that Michael would come home after these meetings and be sick for about a week. So it sounds like Joe Jackson set up his son to get molested/raped for money- allegedly.

I didn't know about that. Thanks for that info.

Hmmmm, that sounds odd coming from someone like her. Seems that there must be more to the story we don't know.

Its such a definite statement.  Seems like she must have a good reason to say it.

This is freedom of speech, even if what she said wasn't nice.

She should have that kept those comments or thoughts to herself, no one should say things about hating death on a person, no matter how you feel about them. Karma will visit her, she needs to repent.

I know he was suppose to be "hard" on his kids and would hit them with belts, but I didn't hear or know he sexually abused them.  If he did, where was Kathrine (his wife) I think if your husband is abusing your kids you are 100% aware of it.  You can either do something about it, or turn a blind eye to it.  I know what I would do and its not turning a blind eye.

I think people just need to keep their comments to themselves

I wouldn't know what the truth is because I didn't see the tweet. Did anyone else? When I did a search, all I got was rumor mills.  Plus the fact that anyone can hack someone's Twitter account. Other well knowns have had their accounts hacked, even Trump. None of this came from her directly so I am being cautious.

I do know one of the daughters did come out and had some not so nice words about Jackson that weren't nice but I guess that story was hidden from view. .Only time will tell.

Doesn't sound like something that should be said to the public but then again, not knowing the reasoning behind it, it's hard to really say.  From what I've heard he was a really awful person.

That was not a nice to say by Bette Midler. Whether Joe Jackson was good or bad he is in a better place now.
