The Reverend Al Sharpton and a female fan got a little carried away during a public memorial for Michael Jackson held at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem last night.
Thousands of fans from all over the country lined up in the pouring rain along West 125th Street near the historic Apollo Theater waiting for their chance to celebrate the life and music of Michael Jackson, who died of heart failure last week at his rented home in Los Angeles.
The memorial began at 2pm with Sharpton calling for a moment of silence at 5:26pm -- the time on the east coast when doctors pronounced Jackson dead at the UCLA Medical Center.
Then Sharpton shocked revelers when he and an unidentified woman got up close and personal with each other onstage as director Spike Lee snapped photos of the spectacle.
