--> ...dancing robots appear with LED breastplates that first flash dollar signs amidst videos of urban and international violence, then display hearts as Mother Teresa appears onscreen to feed starving children. The number was originally designed for Jackson's This Is It shows (performances that were preempted by the artist's demise), so Cirque can't entirely be blamed for its unseemly exploitation of human suffering for commercial entertainment. Of course Jackson would have seen himself as raising awareness, and Cirque doubtless think the same thing about the pro-Gaia number ["Earth Song"] that unfolds as 30,000 people sip from souvenir plastic cups.

* EveryoneHatesMimes: A RealLife example -- a common professional critical complaint is that The Mime is ''just'' a dancing mime, with no distinctive personality, and makes a weak viewpoint character.

* WhiteMaleLead: The Mime; while it's never been unusual for a Cirque show to have a white male performer playing the viewpoint character, the trope sticks out more in a show paying tribute to a ''black'' performer.

* {{Retool}}: Over the course of the overseas itinerary, several acrobatic acts were cut to trim operating expenses. The licensing fees Jackson's estate charged were higher than Cirque budgeted for, so the show was selling lots of tickets while turning little profit for the company.

* WhiteMaleLead: The Mime; while many Cirque shows have white male characters serving the viewpoint role, this trope comes off as odd for a show paying tribute to a black performer.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: At the show's first performance in China (Beijing, to be specific) in 2013, [[http://www.cnn.com/2013/08/15/world/asia/tank-man-cirque-soleil/index.html the audience was shocked]] to see the famous image of the Tiananmen Square "Tank Man" during the "They Don't Care About Us" video montage, even though the show was prescreened by the country's Ministry of Culture. As this image is literally BannedInChina, subsequent performances in the country cut the offending clip out.
