No proof, no facts, no reasonable suspicion — just the story of two men, who admitted that they lied before. What could possibly be better than the 2019 HBO documentary featured on Channel 4 and HBO, called Leaving Neverland. Jackson's legacy, image, and reputation as a man, and as an entertainer, have been ruined. What the court of law couldn't do in 2005, a film (with no evidence) did — which was deem and deliver the guilty verdict on Michael Jackson.
Even Though You Are Deceased, You Are Guilty!
In this 4 hour long self proclaimed 'documentary', Jackson is accused of sexually abusing two men, by the names of Wade Jeremy Robson, and James Safechuck Jr. — these men accuse Jackson of sexually abusing them from the ages of 7 (Robson) and 10 (Safechuck), on until they hit puberty, which was the age of 14. Robson and Safechuck delivered a compelling, thoroughly detailed story which described the process which Michael Jackson allegedly groomed them, befriended them, and then sexually abused them. What makes these men's stories so very believable to the public? Two factors could explain this:
Why are these factors the main ones? Michael Jackson has been dehumanized by the media, to the point where society considers him nothing less of a monstrous alien (not a man). Anything said about him, whether or not he molested a 13 year old cancer patient, or he bleached his skin. Psychologically, sexually detailed stories in a graphic nature allude the audience into believing the people saying this; in most cases, telling the audience stories graphically, shape the way the audience looks at things. For example, the audience may say that just because Robson and Safechuck's stories are so detailed, they knew what was going on in the bedroom and could recall it, therefore it happened.
The gloved one's reputation and music has been shut down due to this film, and just because of the words of two men, Jackson, an acquitted man, has been pronounced guilty again with the release of this documentary. Another notion which believers of Leaving Neverland have, is that "oh, you didn't watch the documentary", which is not effective in the slightest. Yes, many people and defenders have indeed watched the film, and that's exactly why they debunk them in the first place. It's not plausible, and useless, to debunk and refute something which you did not even watch. Therefore, most, if not all defenders of Jackson have indeed watched the film.
The Most Believable Men In The World
The two most believable men in the world; Wade Robson & James Safechuck. If they said it, it's true. You know why? Cause it's Michael Jackson! The pedophile, skin bleacher, plastic surgery addicted freak, drug addict, the man who built a whole ranch to attract children so he could molest them (certainly not the case), and was the world's most weird, bizarre, and alienated man! This notion is from those who easily deem Jackson guilty without skepticism. But if Jackson said it, or said that he did not molest these children, he's lying! You know why? He is a celebrity, he is manipulative, he had a PR team, and this and that. How come Michael Jackson is not believed when he said that he was innocent? But when other people with shady pasts and backgrounds, such as the Arvizo family accuse him, then their word is easily reliable and Jackson's is not? For most, proof doesn't matter.
Many people came into this documentary with the mindset that either Jackson was guilty, or they wanted to understand the stories' of these two men. Once they watched it, then they came to the firm conclusion that Robson & Safechuck are telling the truth about their alleged abuse, because they explained the grooming method in detail. According to Robson himself, he was a 'master of deception', and even though he said that it was because of Jackson's 'coaching', he still admitted that he was one in the first place, which matters more. Robson could have been easily telling a glib and artfully skilled (in speech), convincing story to sway the audience to believe him, so he could take the cash grab. After all, who wouldn't want $1.62 billion from Michael Jackson's Estate, right? This is their chance, and they seized it.
Despite contradicting statements from other children (Macaulay Culkin, Brett Barnes, more), according to just these two men's words, Jackson was guilty. What does it mean for Jackson's legacy and name now? Jackson's Estate underwent severe damage control after the notorious documentary which was released in 2019, and sent Jackson nephew Taj Jackson (son of Tito Jackson), out on an expedition to defend Jackson, and refute the film. Most of the times, Taj Jackson successfully did this; however, people also discredit Taj's words and say that he is just defending Jackson because of the Estate's royalties and his uncle's legacy (which gains money for them, allegedly). This, all in all, is not true. While Taj Jackson may say things which aren't entirely true (FBI Investigation), he certainty truthfully recalls experiences which he had with his uncle in the past.
A crowd funded documentary with no title is in the works, according to Taj Jackson. This documentary is going to allegedly set the record straight on the Jackson allegations, with exclusive interviews with other people who could refute these men's words. Aside from this documentary, there have been several other documentaries produced by Jackson's family and friends, such as Square One, or Chase the Truth in the midst of Leaving Neverland. More so, Jackson's music has been removed from many different radio stations. But there are still many stations which still play Jackson's music and won't mute the pop sensation.
The Aftermath of Neverland
Michael Jackson always denied sexually abusing children, and some of the times the singer made statements, he would get visibly emotional. Jackson made it clear that he would rather take a swan dive than hurt children, or abuse them in any way. What is it for Jackson's legacy? Will his name forever be known as not the King of Pop, but rather a serial pedophile? Will his music be played? Will these allegations taint his image? The answers lie in those who own Jackson's Estate, and it's up to them to make a groundbreaking evidential documentary which fully contradicts everything which the accusers had to say about Jackson.
