Leaving Neverland: Michael Jackson documentary provokes new wave of outrage

The Reverend Ruth Scott has died

BBC2 is said to have dropped songs by Michael Jackson from its playlist following new allegations of child sex abuse brought up in the documentary "Leaving Neverland".

The first instalment of the two-part film Leaving Neverland aired on HBO in the U.S. last night, after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival.

The two men said they regularly spent hours on the phone talking to Jackson, with one of them comparing the conversations to when you first start "dating" someone.

Explosive new documentary Leaving Neverland threatens to forever taint Michael Jackson's legacy. "But for me, this moment transcends MICHAEL JACKSON". They and their families were invited into his wondrous world, entranced by the singer's fairy-tale existence as his career reached its peak. They go into graphic detail in the film as to what Jackson did to them including claims of masturbation, oral sex and penetration.

I've had conversations with friends in which we've wondered if the actual process of watching the documentary is even necessary-we already know what it's about, and we already generally believe that these awful stories have validity, so do we then need to subject ourselves to the actual experience?

Oprah Winfrey, herself a survivor of child sexual abuse, has been bombarded with hate-filled messages ahead of her interview with his accusers scheduled to air immediately after the conclusion to the two-part documentary.

When the highly-anticipated doc finally premiered, many fans on Twitter stepped in to defend Jackson.

Safechuck claimed that Jackson assaulted him at 10 different spots around the property.

In more recent years Robson would later (unsuccessfully) apply for a job with the Jackson family as a choreographer for the Immortal live shows.

"I'm floored by the courage of Wade Robson and James Safechuck", said another. "It's not a feat of investigative journalism so much as an act of bearing witness", Morris writes, explaining exactly why I think Leaving Neverland should be experienced by someone like me in all its four hours. Michael asked: 'Do you and the family want to come to Neverland?' "This is how we show love". "Anything that Michael did was right to me, for so many years". The judge in the case ruled that Jackson's estate could not be held responsible for Jackson's actions. "'Wade Robson and James Safechuck have both testified under oath that Michael never did anything inappropriate toward them, ' the statement read".
