Twitter Reacts With Mixed Emotions Over Michael Jackson Documentary, ‘Leaving Neverland’
The highly controversial HBO documentary Leaving Neverland deals with the alleged sexual abuse Michael Jackson committed on Wade Robson and James Safechuck when they were children.
The two-part documentary, which premiered Sundays night, has already caused a storm of protest from the Jackson family, who are planning on suing the network for the unsubstantiated allegations in the film. The Jackson family also appeared on CBS This Morning decrying the film and saying the accusers “are in it for the money.”
Twitter has erupted with widely different takes on the film with some choosing to agree with the victims – and others denouncing them.
It’s amazing how brainwashed MJ fans are even now. I believe Wade & Jimmy. MJ was not a saint or God he was a fallible human being just as capable of evil as anyone else. #LeavingNeverland

As a former child actress, I can’t help but watch this documentary and think about how wrong it is for children to be put in the position of performing for the soul purpose of pleasing adults. It’s such a slippery, dangerous, often abusive slope. #LeavingNeverland

#LeavingNeverland Look on the FBI vaults website. All the documents they collected on MJ are available for the public to read. They spent 13 years on this & found nothing that indicated he was a molester. Please don’t support these liars & don’t believe what they tell you. pic.twitter.com/raElCbeoHu

The only thing that this "documentary" proves to me is that the name Michael Jackson is still interesting enough to generate loads of money.
And that's what is all about for those boys: money.#LeavingNeverland
