Newspaper article on Michael Jackson being the modern day Elephant Man

Also saying paedophile hunters might dig him up.

Kind of an unfair article and comparision. Joseph Merrick was no victim, far from it. He capitalised on his 'freak' value 50/50 with fair owners, not at all how his story is depicted in the David Lynch film.

Er, no. Merrick's life condition was a terrible genetic disease. He lived in poverty, got used in freak shows before dying of a broken neck aged 27, because his head became too heavy for his neck to support sad .

Most of MJ's problems were self-inflicted. He had mental issues, but obviously a great performer.

No comparison smile.
