It's hard to know who is the most disgusting father.

But it's a good thing Joe Jackson is on that list. One need look no further than Michael to see the results of his "parenting."

At least Joe wasn't half as bad a John Phillips. Ewwwww! But then in your cases he wasn't a Jackson. That's what the real issue is with you both.

Michael Jackson was a devoted and loving father.

Oh and before you sling up the balcony incidents for the umpteenth time, Len is Disgusted. Have a look at this one. I don't find it bad at all.

So you don't think that a father that has raped and knocked up his daughter over a 10 period is not the most disgusting.

You are a true one eyed Jackson basher.

They didn't put MJ on the list of bad celebrity dads, did they?

Joseph beat MJ as a child which is why the bastard made the list.

But Michael certainly wasn't his father.

Yes, John Philips was pretty gross.

A truly disgusting dude.

A has been drugged up hippie from The Mamas And The Papas.

I don't think there is any worse example than that dead sicko.

Yuck!

All of them including Joe Jackson.

MJ didn't make the list. That should make you happy, right?

I've read the whole article.

Shall I put John and Woody at number one as the worse dads?

Does it matter?

Joe Jackson beat MJ and hung him upside down from buildings.

Real fine dad.

This Phillips made Joe look like a Sunday school teacher. He was one hell of a sick f*cker and this didn't even hit world news considering the Mamas and the Papas were huge during their time.

This happened in the late 70's.

His daughter told her story in a book after John Philips death.

The Mamas And Papas were only huge for a short period in the 60's.

Why would it hit the world news?

John Philips was a has been and very few people really care.

I agree the dude was one sick pup.

But he doesn't lessen Joe Jackson's abuse to Michael.

You can't put one bad dad over another bad dad cause one is worse.

Have any of MJ's brothers whined about what monster Joe Jackson was? The only people I've heard do it are Michael and his mom and I wouldn't believe either of them. I'll bet if Michael said Joe was a great dad, Katherine would back him up.

Joe admitted on Oprah he abused his children.

During the 60s and late 70s, family values and morals had stricter protocol than today.

I disagree, long term rape and incest is a much more serious form of abuse than of Joe Jackson's. Michael Jackson broke the cycle with his children through respect and love.

Obviously, John Philips and Joe Jackson are two peas in a pod.

You forget that Latoya once claimed that Joseph raped her.

Yes, MJ wasn't his father because he was still better than that.

Hardly. Joe never used the word, "abused." He said he spanked his kids.

Something you could have used some more of.

I would put MJ saying that his father "beat him" in the same category as him saying Sony was out to destroy his career.

MJ was a drama queen and his gullible fans swallowed every word that tumbled out of his drug addled mouth as nothing less than the absolute truth.

Yeah, she flipped flopped because she got in trouble.

The Jacksons blamed Jack Gordon for making her say those things.

He was her manager and Latoya thought it would help her career.

What kind of person turns against her brother when he's down?

I remember how she went to the media calling MJ a pedophile.

She obviously loved being in the spotlight even with no talent.

Exactly how most of the Jacksons behave.

As why she would claim that Joseph raped her...

I don't know why she would say that but she obviously hates him.

Family affairs are meant to be private. If some celebrity is openly slandering their own family, they're after something.

In MJ's case, he was hoping the public would be so wrapped up crying for this poor little rich boy, hopefully they wouldn’t notice that he was getting away with things we wouldn’t tolerate from anyone else!

He sure knew his audience. It’s a shame that he used his fan's emotions to cover his tracks but they don’t seem to mind.
