Michael Jackson upset after being compared to the IRA.

Michael Jackson apparently was upset and has demanded an apology after a pair of radio comedians compared the pop star to the Irish Republican Army (IRA).

The comedian Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis had in the BBC 4 Weekly comedy show, The Now Show, made light of the troubles in Northern Ireland by referring to the pop star and terrorist group as "80s celebrities".

They said: "I can't believe which 80s celebrities I want back less, Michael Jackson or the IRA."

In addition to Jackson's complaint several listeners to the show were also said to have lodged complaints. Coming on the back of the problems the BBC have had with Jonathan Ross, Russell Brand and Carole Thatcher I can imagine they will be quick to smooth this over

Michael Jackson
is currently set to start his "This is it" tour with a residency at the 02 centre in London.
