In 2012, Michaels faced backlash from law enforcement officers and their families following her outspoken comments on the July 28, 2012 episode of her podcast, "The Jillian Michaels Show. " Approximately 8 minutes into the episode, Michaels expressed a lifelong hatred of police officers, to wit: "Cops are just A-holes . . . I've hated cops since I was a kid. The 'Po-Po,' I hate 'em. I've always hated 'em. I tried to pretend like I don't hate 'em. " Michaels' comments were prompted by the police response to a burglary that had occurred in her Malibu home earlier that month.  According to TMZ, on July 3, 2012, at approximately 9:00pm, career-criminal Gerjuan Harmon broke into the home she shares with her then-fiancée Heidi Rhoades and their two young children. While Michaels and family were elsewhere in the home, Harmon, a parolee, entered through an unlocked door and removed Michaels' purse, which contained her wallet and the keys to her 2011 Bentley GT. Following a high-speed police chase, Harmon crashed the Bentley into a light pole.  After fighting with the responding officers, Harmon was placed under arrest. In September 2014, Harmon was convicted of unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle, evading an officer, resisting executive officers and misdemeanor hit-and-run driving. He is now serving a 17-year sentence in state prison.  When describing the incident on her July 28, 2012 podcast, Michaels claimed that the responding officers were bribed by TMZ, accepting money in exchange for details about the crime. With no evidence to support her assertions, backlash from the law enforcement community surfaced on social media. A Facebook page, "Jillian Michaels Hates Law Enforcement," was established in an apparent effort to counter Michaels' vitriolic comments and assertions by suggesting boycotts of the various brands endorsed by Michaels. The July 28, 2012 podcast episode in question, titled, "Jillian Finds Gratefulness in a Personal Loss," was removed from the show's iTunes feed by the show's producers, but can still be found on SoundCloud.
