Exploitation on a whole new level

It’s amazing… no one seems to have shame any more; a topic I bring up time and time again, but usually apply to Trinidadians and Tobagonians.

Now I see it can apply to the Jackson family:

Fans who took part in an online draw to attend the service were set to find out on Sunday if they had won one of 17,500 tickets avaiable. [sic]

More than 1.6m people signed up for the chance to be at the ceremony being held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Can you imagine having a lottery to your son’s/sibling’s funeral? Even in death, the man is being exploited.
