Dumb casino of the week ... Michael Jackson Casino

5 replies • Last post

Yes you read that headline right. See our story here:
Michael Jackson Casino owners can expect a call from Jackson's lawyers

It goes without saying but I'll say it anyway ... don't deposit and play there if you have any respect for your money at all.

Yeah its bad, its bad, really really bad. boom boom tisshhhhh, thanks I'm here all week folks...

How stupid do you have to be to create a casino using whacko Jacko's name and image without getting permission? I mean could you even find a family with deeper pockets and better lawyers to take on?

And what does he have to do with casinos anyway?

Dumb, dumber, and even dumberer!

Anyway I can't get to the site anymore so it's probably gone already. Lucky I took a screenshot so we can preserve this idiocy for all time! Whoever the brainiac who thought of the idea deserves an instant seat in the online casino hall of shame.

Wait .. it gets even better! A guy who claims to own the copyright of the images used on the site is suing the site's web host GoDaddy for $100 million!

Wow, is it possible that they just didn't think through what they're doing? I mean, just taking anyone's name without the person's authorization is punishable by law. But taking someone hyper-popular, and putting their face and name on your casino just to get better turnover, it's just insane! It's like they wanted to enter gaming history books as the people who went bankrupt in the dumbest possible way! Confused

Here is a statement from the MJ camp in regards to the latest allegations:

I Said You Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'
You Got To Be Startin' Somethin'
I Said You Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'
You Got To Be Startin' Somethin'

Wink!!!
