Michael Jackson's Music Dropped From Radio Stations Following Finding Neverland Premiere

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

BBC2 in England has reportedly banned Jackson's music, too, according to Variety.

The documentary Leaving Neverland has left Michael Jackson's legacy in jeopardy.

The news comes as three major Montreal radio stations revealed they have stopped playing Jackson's music in the wake of the child abuse allegations made against him which aired in the HBO documentary in the USA on Sunday.

Two men, James Safechuck and Wade Robson, allege in the Channel 4 documentary, Leaving Neverland, that they were sexually abused by the superstar.

According to Vanity Fair, major US radio stations do not appear to have stopped playing Jackson's songs.

The documentary has not yet been broadcast in Australia.

In New Zealand, the star's songs are now nearly totally absent from the airwaves, after being pulled by the country's two biggest radio networks, MediaWorks and NZME. However, the company, which owns more than 400 stations in the U.S.

Meanwhile, BBC recently denied banning Jackson following a report that said BBC Radio 2 had "quietly dropped" Jackson's songs from their playlists.

The "Leaving Neverland" documentary aired Sunday on HBO, though viewers who saw the film when it premiered at Sundance Film Festival weeks earlier called the allegations "harrowing". 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.

"Michael Jackson's musical contributions remain part of the Motown story", Robin Terry said. The four-hour film is divided into two parts, with each airing across two commercial hours on consecutive nights. It was reported in 2004 that Jackson paid approximately $25 million to settle a civil suit with that alleged victim.

"Ten years after his passing, there are still those out to profit from his enormous worldwide success and take advantage of his eccentricities", the suit claimed. He's sold more 1 billion albums worldwide.

Cogeco Media operates 23 radio stations and says the decision will also apply in smaller markets in Quebec.

The story also quotes another report in British newspaper the Sun, in which a "source" claims she's anxious that "Leaving Neverland" could damage her fledgling career as a singer and actress.
