Saw an article yesterday where Jackson was responding to the charges,and flatly denying what was reported.He says the wranglers were a few malcontents that were not doing their job properly,were fired,and waited a period of time till just before the premiere to bring these charges..I guess it is turning into a he said/he said situation,without independent corroboration it is tough to say what really went on..:dunno:
I am decidedly anti-abuse -- I've got five cats (one of whom is meowing at me quite vigorously at the moment for reasons unknown), which surely counts for something -- but I'm also decidedly anti-PETA. They are run by clowns, and are seemingly always pulling some stunt like this.
Is it possible that the production was responsible for the abuses? Sure, it's possible. But it's unlikely, and I'll tell you why: it's in everyone's best interests to make sure that things like that do not happen. You cannot account for every person who works for you, though, and it sounds to me as if this was the work of a couple of people who were incompetent at best.
In my mind, the worst you can say about the production is that it made a couple of hires that worked out poorly. Nothing ominous, or boycott-worthy, about that.
Just want you all to know that I am a card carrying member of PETA and I have been for years. I don't agree with everything they due but they certainly aren't run by lunatics.
I think I just wrote "due" instead of "do." Oops.
...sorry Shasta, couldn't help myself...
PETA=People Eating Tasty Animals:wink2:
