A video has emerged of a 13-year-old boy with cancer claiming that Jackson 'forcefully' taught him how to masturbate.
After being dead for a decade, accusations are dragging the king of pop and making headlines once again. The Michael Jackson documentary which was released in late January has stirred up events which may or may not have taken place in the past and is causing huge controversy. Leaving Neverland, a documentary film directed and produced by British filmmaker Dan Reed, strongly claims that Michael Jackson sexually abused two young children, namely, Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck, causing a public outrage and people calling for a boycott on Michael Jackson and his songs.
And radios across the globe had no choice but to listen to their audience's demand. Several major radio stations across the globe have banned Michael Jackson and have refused to play his songs and classic hits until the matter and controversy dissolves. According to The Sun, radios across the WORLD have put a ban on the king of pop due to the allegations made in the documentary. Michael was first accused of sexual misconduct in 1993.
Finding Neverland claims that the pop sensation groomed young children while molesting them. He also apparently once carried out a fake wedding with a 10-year-old boy. The star already was a center of controversy when he was alive and this posthumous issue has only angered people. However, the two men who have accused Michael in the documentary previously denied being molested by Jackson which raises certain eyebrows.
Amidst the allegations and claims, people have requested radio stations to keep from playing Jackson's songs and ban him. Several stations across the world have already banned Michael from their station, including radio stations in New Zealand and Canada. Two major radio stations in New Zealand have stepped up and totally banned MJ saying they keep their audience's preference in mind. State-owned RNZ said their decision is “a reflection of our audiences and their preferences”.
After watching #LeavingNeverland, we have banned Michael Jackson from our radio stations. This is out of respect for not only his victims, but all victims of sexual abuse.— Fix Radio (@FixRadioUK) March 6, 2019
NZME director Dean Buchanan said, “Playlists change from week to week and right now Michael Jackson does not feature on them.” Radio channels across Canada have also followed up and decided to not play Jackson's hits until things get sorted. Media company Cogeco has removed Michael from all 23 of its Quebec stations, including three major Montreal broadcasters CKOI, Rythme, and The Beat.
Amsterdam-based Dutch radio station NHRadio, Norway's NRK and even the BBC has banned the Moonwalker. A spokesperson of BBC, however, has denied a 'ban' on Michael as such. In the documentary, Wade Robson, a choreographer claims that Jackson started abusing him when he was seven, and James Safechuck, a former child actor, claims that he became Michael's victim at age 10. The documentary has left people absolutely horrified in disbelief.
Following the ban, the statue of Michael Jackson has also been removed from Britain's National Football Museum amidst the sexual abuse allegations and dedicated fans of MJ cannot believe that this is really happening when the legend has been dead for years and can in no way defend himself against the claims against him. "As part of our ongoing plans to better represent the stories we want to tell, we have made a decision to remove the Michael Jackson statue from display," a spokesperson of the museum said in a statement.
A shocking video of a 13-year-old boy with cancer has also emerged in which the boy can be seen talking to the sheriff, telling him that Michael Jackson forcefully made him drink wine and asked him to masturbate. "He showed me, he wanted to show me how to masturbate. Then I said no and he said he would do it for me...He started masturbating me ... I told him I didn't want to do that. I told him not to do that," the boy says in the clip obtained by DailyMail. Jackson was charged with seven counts of child molestation in 2003 but his charges could not be proved and in the case of People vs Michael Jackson, Jackson was acquitted of all charges in 2004.
