Michael Jackson Used His 'The Simpsons' Episode 'To Groom Boys'

Paris Jackson is sure that her father Michael Jackson's name wont' be torn down following the damning documentary Leaving Neverland, in which James Safechuck and Wade Robson claim they were sexually abused by the King of Pop when they were children.

A 1991 episode of The Simpsons that Jackson guest starred in was withdrawn from streaming services and TV channels by the show's producers, who said it was "the only choice to make".

The episode was written specifically for Jackson.

"It wasn't just a comedy to him".

James L. Brooks told The Wall Street Journal last week that "Stark Raving Dad" was a "treasured episode" that was hard to dismiss.

Michael Jackson used his guest appearance on "The Simpsons" to groom potential sex abuse victims, according to the animated show's longtime boss.

"I think it was part of what he used to groom boys", Jean continued.

After Leaving Neverland was aired on Channel 4 earlier this month, viewers were left "feeling sick" at the explicit allegations. "I don't believe in going through and making judgments on every guest star and saying 'this one was bad, that one was bad, ' but the episode itself has a false goal, and that's what I object to about it now".

In light of the damning new accusations, Jean said be believed it was the right thing to no longer syndicate the episode, despite admitting that he would suffer financially from the move. He wasn't entirely a Cosby parody either, which is why I don't think anybody looks at the character now and says "Oh, that's Bill Cosby". "I don't believe in going through and making judgments on every guest star and saying 'this one was bad, that one was bad, ' but the episode itself has a false objective, and that's what I object to about it now". "It's from the heart, on our part, and I think Jim [Brooks] put it really well. And that makes me very, very sad", Jean concluded.

"The documentary gave evidence of monstrous behavior", Brooks told the Wall Street Journal.

The posters had been funded by a crowdfunding campaign which raised £20,000, with campaigners arguing: "We would not think twice in turning our backs on his legacy, if we for one second felt that there was any truth at all in these heinous events".
