HBO insists on airing disparaging documentary about Michael Jackson


The documentary is about sexual allegations against the singer which was made by two men who claimed he absurd them when they were kids.

The broadcaster is being sued by the late singer’s estate who say the broadcaster “breached its agreement not to disparage Michael Jackson.”

The complaint filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court says:

“The Jackson Estate will seek all damages proximately caused by HBO’s reprehensible disparagement of Michael Jackson, which could exceed $100 million should HBO succeed in the damage it is intending to cause to the legacy of Michael Jackson”.

“HBO breached its agreement not to disparage Michael Jackson by producing and selling to the public a one-sided marathon of unvetted propaganda to shamelessly exploit an innocent man no longer here to defend himself.”

However, HBO insists on going ahead to broadcast the documentary.

“Despite the desperate lengths taken to undermine the film, our plans remain unchanged,” said the network in response to the filed complaint. “HBO will move forward with the airing of Leaving Neverland , the two-part documentary, on March 3 and 4 . This will allow everyone the opportunity to assess the film and the claims in it for themselves.”

  1. What is the point of making a film about the mistake of a dead person? I think it is malicious and a waste of time. I won’t watch a second of it. Where was HBO when MJ was on earth?

  2. The fact that Jackson is gone doesn’t give him the impetus to tarnish his image and destroy his lied down legacy… Why didn’t he engage on such project while he was alive???

  3. This kind of allegations doesn’t speak well because MJ is gone and it will be bad if his image got tarnish

  4. Where were you when he is alive that you can not revealed this secret then and how long has he dead, why now

  5. I don’t know why I don’t feel good concern this late Micheal Jackson. he looks like dead person even why alive.

  6. This man is long dead and you are bring something that is supposed to be pointed since he was alive…… Pls keep that to yourself

  7. Why are they still carrying MJ’s matter on their heads? The man is dead for goodness sake. Let him rest.

  8. Why must u ridicule a music legend, because u wanna rubbish him, and at d same time make money from his mistakes, if they we’re really his mistakes. Don’t u have other things to do. That’s bullsheet
