    I think it's a ridiculing name. I think you are a little late.
    Stupid media. First they mock him. Then they respect him.
    Some still mock.

    That name was coined (in the UK tabloids?) during a period of revelations of certain eccenricities which taken together made him appear very eccentric or a bit "whacko": the excessive plastic surgery, the private "fairground" at his estate; wanting to buy the bones of the Elephant Man, and reportedlly sleeping at night in a special chamber. All this was prior to suggestions of improper interest in juvenile boys after which the playfully derisive Wacko Jacko image was eclipsed by the suspicions of latent pedophilia

    Since he is gone, those stories take on a decreasing part of the MJ narrative in rlation to his creative legacy, so he becomes more a "tragic hero" to cherish than a figure to deride.
