Michael's Former Publicist Issues Controversial Statement

Michael Jackson’s former publicist Michael Levine has just issued a statement regarding the death of his former client. We’ll put it this way—he did not sugarcoat anything.

The official statement reads:

"As someone who served as Michael Jackson's publicist during the 1st child molestation incident, I must confess I am not surprised by today's tragic news.

"Michael has been on an impossibly difficult and often self-destructive journey for years. His talent was unquestionable but so too was his discomfort with the norms of the world.

"A human simply can not withstand this level of prolonged stress.''

What do you think of Levine’s statement? Should he have shown a little more compassion towards a man whom he worked for? Many think it is a little unprofessional on his part. What do you think?
