Jermaine Jackson Fires Back At Donald Trump Over Michael Jackson Comments

By  | 

Michael Jackson’s brother Jermaine is coming to the pop icon’s defense following comments made by Donald Trump regarding the singer.

During CNN’s GOP Town Hall event, Trump was asked about his taste in music by moderator, Anderson Cooper. “Michael Jackson was actually a very good friend of mine,” Trump said. “He was an unbelievably talented guy. He lost his confidence. He lost tremendous confidence because of, honestly, bad-bad-bad surgery. He had the worst. He had people that did numbers on him that were just unbelievable … you know, the plastic surgeons,” the presidential hopeful explained.

“He was an unbelievable talent who actually lost his confidence. Believe it or not, when you lose your confidence in something you can even lose your talent,” Trump continued.

On Friday morning, Jermaine took to Twitter to respond to Trump’s comments, saying Michael’s confidence didn’t take a shot because of botched plastic surgeries.

Jermaine does admit that Michael and Donald may have been friends, but still finds the reference made by the politician offensive.
