Prosecutor David Walgren showed a Michael Jackson death photo during the Conrad Murray trial. The picture showed the King of Pop lying dead on a gurney. Jackson's family teared up at the site of their loved one in such a state. Fans reacted to the shocking picture on Twitter as well.
In the picture presented at the trial, Michael Jackson was pale on the bed with a hospital gown draped over him and tape between his nose and mouth. Beside the death photo, Walgren placed a picture of the superstar singing the night before when he was very much alive. As he did that he asked, "What happened between that time and approximately 12 hours later when Michael Jackson is dead on June 25, 2009?" What happened indeed?
Twitter fan Archie Wonder tweeted, "That MJ death photo is so sad...Smh. R.I.P. Michael Jackson." Another fan took to Twitter to express his disgust. Eric Benett tweeted, "They just showed a photo of Michael Jackson on his death bed on the news. I think the media should be a little bit more considerate, smh."
After the Michael Jackson death photo was shown, his sisters Latoya and Janet were seen with tissues. What a difficult time this must be for everyone who loved the singer. His death came as such an incredible shock to the world, and to have this photo available now is hard.
What do you think? Have you seen the photo of the King of Pop on his death bed? Are you surprised it has been circulated today?
