“Diane Dimond and Court TV have obtained a court-issued restraining order against the leader of a Michael Jackson fan contingent,” according to Drudge. Based on his description, it sounds like the fan is BJ Hickman, an 18-year-old (or 20, depending on the story) from Tennessee. The fan allegedly screams “bitch, bitch, bitch” while Dimond works outside the courthouse, Drudge says.
BJ has received plenty of press, most recently from this USA Today story. It describes how Jackson supporters shout “stop the lies” to reporters: “Those words are directed toward the media, ensconced in tents within shouting distance of the fans. A chain-link fence separates the two groups. Some fans blame reporters for Jackson’s problems. They heckle Court TV’s Diane Dimond, crime author Aphrodite Jones, who serves as an analyst for Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, and MSNBC legal analyst Susan Filan, among others.”
