After Leaving Neverland aired this weekend, Michael Jackson’s legacy was tainted once again. It appears as though the man will never truly rest with allegations being made against him by two previously-silent victims, James Safechuck and Wade Robson
The victims are the stars of the HBO documentary, coming forward to speak about the abuse they allegedly suffered at the superstar’s hands when they were children.
Since Neverland aired, the public’s view of Michael Jackson has shifted slightly with radio stations pulling his music in Canada and New Zealand. In addition to the radio ban, an MJ statue has been removed from Britain’s National Football Museum.
According to CNN, the statue was taken down because of the public’s reaction to new sexual abuse allegations. The statue was installed in 2014 inside of the soccer museum, but it was no longer being displayed this week.
The decision to remove MJ’s statue from this specific museum shouldn’t be too big of a hot topic, simply because Jackson was not a professional soccer player but his reach was so vast that he could be placed in a soccer museum without people thinking twice about it.
