Michael Jackson's Music Dropped From Radio Stations Following Finding Neverland Premiere

Michael Jackson Dropped From Some Radio Stations Following Child Sex Abuse Doc

Australian, Canadian and New Zealand radio stations have made a decision to stop playing Michael Jackson's music as new allegations of sexual abuse have been claimed against the late king of pop.

Michael Jackson faces allegations that he used to groom young children, even carrying out a fake wedding ceremony with a 10-year old in HBO's Finding Neverland documentary.

Since the documentary was first broadcast in the U.S., major radio stations in Canada and New Zealand and individual DJs have moved to remove his songs from their playlists.

MediaWorks too confirmed that his music had been pulled, as a "a reflection of our audiences and their preferences". A Hollywood DJ says she will now refuse to play any of his music and is urging other people to do the same. Despite repeated allegations, Jackson and his family continue to deny all claims of abuse. It was reported in 2004 that Jackson paid approximately $25 million to settle a civil suit with that alleged victim.

"We are attentive to listeners' comments, and last night's documentary created reactions", Christine Dicaire, director of marketing and communications for Cogeco, said in a written statement shared with the CBC.

The documentary, Leaving Neverland features interviews with Wade Robson and James Safechuck who claim to have been sexually abused by Jackson when they were seven and eight respectively.

Legit.ng gathered that Australian radio network, ARN, is keeping a close eye on how the public will react to the pop star's music after the documentary has been broadcast. His estate has criticised "Leaving Neverland" as "an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson".

The broadcasters have yet to clarify how long the bans will last.

James will find himself propelled into the limelight following his part in the Leaving Neverland documentary.

The National Football Museum has had the statue of Michael Jackson since 2014, when it was donated by former Fulham chairman, Mohamed Al Fayed.

The estate said the documentary is "the kind of tabloid character assassination Michael Jackson endured in life, and now in death", and added that "the film takes uncorroborated allegations that supposedly happened 20 years ago and treats them as fact".
