McCartney’s Jackson impression axed by BBC

Michael Jackson may be a pale imitation of his former self (quite literally) but that doesn't warrant the BBC broadcasting a Sir Paul McCartney impression of the king of pop.

According to the BBC’s nemesis the Daily Mail, the interview with the Big Mac has been dropped by the BBC as it was deemed "offensive" and "trans-racial".

"McCartney started to reply in this high-pitched Jacko voice, and apparently it was very funny. But the BBC - deeply nervous, perhaps because of the Jonathan Ross-Russell Brand affair - has declined to broadcast the interview” said a source.

The pop pairing had a falling out when Jackson bought the rights to The Beatles back catalogue.
