yes i do think his father was bad to him.And here are my reasons. Number one his father calling him big nose and calling him ugly. toi DONT call your own child ugly!Number 2 he wipped michael and his brothers when they didnt sing a song right. And number 3 he showed no emotion what so ever when mj died. It like he didnt care that mj was gone, and not only that at mj's memmorial he had the nerve to get up on stage and annouce something about his new musique group and then he walks off stage not saying one word about michael. Now if thats not bad enough tell me what is.
