Some things aren't worth mentioning. Michael Jackson ran from New York City on September 11th and didn't stop until he hit New Jersey. Well, thanks for the helping hand, buddy!

Michael should be putting his mask back on to cover his face - in shame this time. According to Canada's Much More Music channel, Michael admitted fleeing New York and hiding out in New Jersey on September 11th. Not a big deal considering the circumstances of that day. However, the pop star, who was in New York to play a tribute concert to himself, wasn't doing anyone any favors.

9/11 and Michael Jackson

On the morning of September 11th, Michael received a call in his hotel room from a friend in Saudi Arabia who told him that New York was under attacked. Michael said he ran down the hotel halls yelling for everyone to get out. (More likely, he was screaming like a little girl for his buddy Marlon Brando and his security people.) Michael loaded everyone into his limo and then high-tailed it to New Jersey.

So Mike, you've done a lot of stuff for charity, did it ever cross your mind to maybe stay and help out? And why did someone from across the world have to call you and tell you - you were in NY ever think of watching the news? Hmm... definitely the behavior of a zero!

1 How dare you say that about the King of Pop?! He has done so much for the world and after all the accusations he recieves he still tries to make the world a better place for children. So what if he fled? Who would want to stay? You're forgetting he is only human, and screaming like a little girl? ANYBODY in that position would be scared. Whoever wrote this article was NOT there and does NOT have their facts straight. Perhaps they should be in his shoes before they talk. And another thing, I'm sure someone as famous as himself would have something more important to do than watch the news all day. He was in NY for a concert. Did you ever stop to think that maybe he was concentrating on that? Nah, didn't think so.

1 You guys are being very unfair to Michael Jackson. He may have fled but it was more than likely for a good reason. That is really not fair how you people sit here and critize people just so you can get satisfaction.

1 He is the king of freaks is what he is, having all that surgery done. I like his music but he's just too weird.

Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
