Funnymen such as Jay Leno, Chris Rock and Howard Stern crafted punchlines out of the scandal. And they did it unapologetically.
In a Conan O’Brien bit after Jackson was found not guilty in his 2005 molestation trial, the talk show host “interviewed” a fake Jackson, with someone else mouthing the words coming from his lips.
“I never imagined in a million years that 12 adults would get me off,” the pretend Jackson said.
Cringe-worthy or funny or both? Watch the irreverence above and decide for yourself.
