Since childhood the Jackson family has consistently been in the public’s watchful eye due to their extraordinary talent and scandals. However despite all of the hoopla, one family member has a few choice words aimed towards the media.
Yesterday during an appearance on HuffPost Live, Jermaine Jackson -- along with his brothers, Tito, Jackie, and Marlon -- talked about how frustrating journalists can be at times.
“There are times when we feel like we just want to kick somebody’s ass for the stuff that they say, because that’s the human side,” the 58-year-old admitted. “But we have to continue to smile and do what we do. But yes, we feel like that sometimes too.”
He continued, “These journalists who be saying the wrong things. And they know they be saying the wrong things, but I guess they have to promote negativity.”
