Radio stations will drop Michael Jackson's music amid abuse claims

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

Sony signed $250m distribution deal for Michael Jackson recordings in 2018 - report

As the family of Michael Jackson continues to speak out about "Leaving Neverland", blasting the allegations of accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck as money-driven lies, the late King of Pop's children have been conspicuous by their silence.

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.

Dozens of stations in Canada and New Zealand, including the public broadcaster, RNZ, pulled the music following backlash over the film.

"In light of what is happening at the moment, SmoothFM is not now playing any Michael Jackson songs", a statement by one radio station read. "As part of our ongoing plans to better represent the stories we want to tell, we have made a decision to remove the Michael Jackson statue from display".

Jackson's estate has denied these allegations and is suing HBO for $100 million, claiming the cable outlet violated a non-disparagement clause in a contract for a 1992 concert special. A whole bunch of worldwide networks across the globe have united in their anti-Jackson crusade. The company operates 23 radio stations.

Its attack on Huawei is purposeful and punitive. "Huawei has never had a fair chance to confront or cross-examine its accusers". We purchase billions of dollars' worth of components, equipment, and software from these companies every year.

Gathering outside the headquarters of British TV network Channel 4, the channel on which the documentary will be aired Wednesday and Thursday, a group of fans clutched photos and chanted in unison: "Facts don't lie, people do". The two claim MJ molested each of them on the "Neverland Ranch" and they go on to describe a number of specific encounters in very chilling detail. The Michael Jackson estate, in cooperation with Columbia Live Stage, is planning to launch a stage musical inspired by the life of the pop star.

The BBC has clarified that they do not ban artists and Jackson could be played on BBC Radio.

A Facebook event for the protest lists the organisers as Michael Jackson's Children United Worldwide - Hospital Fund, and called on Jackson's "army of Moonwalkers" to come together to both protest and boycott the release of the film on Channel 4.

Michael Jackson stood trial in 2005 for sexual abuse and was found not guilty of all charges.
