Amidst shocking revelations in the documentary Leaving Neverland, BBC Radio has put an indefinite ban on songs by Michael Jackson.
A BBC Spokesperson said, “We consider each piece of music on its merits and decisions on what we play on different networks are always made with relevant audiences and context in mind.”
Leaving Neverland is a two-part controversial documentary that would air on HBO. “Leaving Neverland” details the horrific accusations of Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 41, who both allege that the King of Pop sexually abused them when they were children.
The Jackson estate has taken legal action against HBO and denied allegations of the men. Taj Jackson, nephew of late Michael Jackson, claimed in an interview that Wade and James were blaming his uncle for no reason and felt that they owed him a lot.
BBC Radio 2 with its roughly 15 million weekly listeners will no longer be able to listen to MJ. The last Jackson song was played on February 23.
