Michael Jackson Dies, Soap Stars React

The sad news of Farrah Fawcett's death has not even sunk in yet and now comes word that pop star Michael Jackson has died. Jackson, 50, passed away at 1:07 p.m. Pacific time today following cardiac arrest and being rushed to UCLA Medical Center.

Soap stars have begun to share their shocked reactions on Twitter.

@TaylorSpreitler (Taylor Spreitler) Rest in Peace MJ-don't think you had much of that here :(

@cathickland (Catherine Hickland) Another child gone home. May Michael Jackson be remembered only for his incredible talent and remarkable heart.

@Ali_Sweeney (Alison Sweeney) ITA RT @PerezHilton Shame on you Entertainment Tonight for posting that photo on your website! Shame on you!!!!

@Chrishell7 (Chrishell Stause) In complete shock over Micheal Jackson. There are no words-just prayers for the family.

@edenriegel (Eden Riegel) OK, @Sami_Angel, how's this? Very thankful Michael Jackson walked among us -- he was an unparalleled talent. #thankfulthursday

@mollydollyy (Molly Burnett) my prayers are with the families and friends of farrah and michael.

@realandrews (Real Andrews) Props go out to Michael Jackson God Bless you Champion

@michaelmuhney (Michael Muhney) Wow. Rest in peace Michael Jackson. Wow.

@CliftonsNotes (Scott Clifton) I think Nik and I are the only ones who aren't THAT sad about MJ dying. He had a good life, and he was done giving us what he had to give. He wasn't doing well in life. And in fact, it's good that he didn't go on so long that we forgot about how amazing he was in his prime.

@KnowJR (J.R. Martinez) just getting home from gym,another great workout! Such a tragedy with Michael Jackson, another reminder. Live every moment b/c u never know

@sarahjoybrown (Sarah Joy Brown) "The Burning Bed" changed things for so many woman and girls - one of the most memorable performances I've ever seen. R.I.P. Farrah Fawcett

@krisalderson (Kristen Alderson) aw, what a sad graduation day.
