The recent presidential election of Donald Trump might take the cake this year for bringing the world to a screeching halt. But the upset following the tapping of actor Joseph Fiennes to play Michael Jackson in a British comedy television show comes a close second.

The actor and British TV channel, Sky Arts, came under fire this week after its offensive and downright wrong portrayal of MJ in an episode of Urban Myths.

After the world practically spontaneously combusted following the release of the show’s first trailer, the network decided to cancel the episode that was set to air January 19.

It was announced on Friday that the show was pulled and will not run.

The channel released a statement that read: “We have taken the decision not to broadcast Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon, a half-hour episode from the Sky Arts Urban Myths series, in light of the concerns expressed by Michael Jackson’s immediate family. We set out to take a lighthearted look at reportedly true events and never intended to cause any offense. Joseph Fiennes fully supports our decision.”

The 30-minute episode, titled “Elizabeth, Michael & Marlon,” chronicled a road trip the late King of Pop took with dear friend, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando following the 9/11 attacks.

Jackson’s daughter, Paris, by the way, called the show “offensive” and it was enough to make her “vomit.”

A video has gone viral of a group of white high school students screaming what appears to be “f*ck ni**ers,” but is there more to the disgusting clip?

The horrendous visual, which went viral earlier this week, shows three girls from Weber High School in Utah yelling the offensive phrase at the top of their lungs.

“We are shocked by the conduct of these students and the contents of the video,” Weber School District said in a statement of the 10 second video. “School officials have started an investigation and the matter is being taken very seriously.”

They added, “We are trying to determine when the video was made, where it was filmed, why the students would engage in such conduct, and how the clip ended up on social media.”

While folks around the nation are disgusted by the disturbing occurrence, some school officials might be defending the group of perceived racists teens.

The district confirmed that an IT guy is looking into the video to see if there was an original video that was put into an app to make a phrase play backwards.

So what could the girls possibly been saying? “Surgeon cuff.” Ummmm, because there’s nothing like yelling “surgeon cuff” in the middle of the day.

After watching the video: Do you think the girls are outright yelling “f*ck n*ggers?”
