    They are alike because they were both great at what they did and were an inspiration to many people.

    They were different to eachother because Michael Jackson sang and danced where as Charlie Chaplin did movies.

    Both human and both born males.


    Charlie Chaplin did not molest little boys or have surgery to become a different race.

    Michael Jackson molested little boys and tried to go from black to white through surgery.

    Charlie Chaplin was not a weirdo. Michael Jackson was a weirdo!
