Unless you live in a cave that does not have Wi-Fi, then you’ve undoubtedly heard of Michael Jackson’s death from cardiac arrest today, but did you know about his fine beverage scandal involving serving wine to kids in soda cans?
Entertainment Weekly reported on January 29, 2004 that, “In the latest issue of Vanity Fair, [Jackson’s former business adviser] Myung-Ho Lee claims the singer tried to seduce at least one boy by serving him Coca-Cola cans that were actually filled with wine. Jackson called the white wine ‘Jesus juice’ and the red wine ‘Jesus blood,’ Lee tells the magazine.”
Following this, The Smoking Gun would report about a Los Angeles couple trying to trademark a wine using Jackson’s term “Jesus juice” with label that was controversial to say the least.
Jacko will be missed by all at Mutineer, who will be abolishing wine glasses and drinking all wine and other libations out of soda cans for the rest of the day, a practice our layout editor Jordan Luckman does from time to time anyways…
