Oprah’s Interview W/ Michael Jackson Victims Garners Mixed Reviews, Mogul Turns Off Comments After Late Singer’s Fans Lash Out
On Monday night, Oprah Winfrey’s “After Neverland” after show aired on HBO and as expected, it garnered mixed reviews on social media. Oprah’s sit-down with Wade Robson and James Safechuck aired immediately after the part two series of ‘Leaving Neverland’. Prior to the show airing, O Magazine released a statement, seemingly siding with the late singer’s alleged accusers.
On Monday evening, Winfrey spoke to the stars of the docu, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, along with the director Dan Reed in front of an audience of sexual abuse survivors.
During the conversation, Winfrey acknowledged that she and Wade and James will likely face criticism for her involvement.
“All the fans and the estate. You guys know you’re gonna get it, right? I’m gonna get it. Are you prepared for that?”
Robson claims he was molested MJ from the ages of 7-14 and Safechuck says the late pop star began to sexually abuse him at the age of 10. See a clip below.
Both men previously testified on behalf of MJ during a separate child molestation trial.
MJ’s family insists that he is innocent and recently revealed in an interview that he had secretly been investigated by the FBI for 10 years.
Oprah’s after show resulted in mixed reviews, from those who supported the conversation, to those who began a #MuteOprah hashtag. See some reactions below.
Meanwhile, MJ fans have bombarded the comment section of Oprah’s Instagram account, bombarding the media mogul with criticism. See some reactions below.
As a result of some of the criticism, she turned off the comments on her latest Instagram post.
