Michael Jackson Documentary Described As ‘More Disturbing Than You Can Imagine’ By The First People To See It

Fans demand proof.

The Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland has finally been released, and people are not very happy. People are requesting proof about the many accusations that have been pinned on the late pop icon.

  • On January 25, the 4-hour documentary was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival

    The documentary is focused on the cases that involved celebrity choreographer Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, who claim that Michael Jackson sexually abused and manipulated them at a very young age. According to Robson, Jackson ran one of the most sophisticated child sex abuse ring.

     

  • The documentary was met with very strong reactions from movie critics, who said that the accusations of sexual abuse are disturbing and shocking

  • While the critics had plenty to say, the people had even more questions, and the topic got very spicy! The people are not here for the accusations made in the documentary and expressed it via Twitter

  • The King of Pop’s nephew Taj Jackson also got involved and shared his thoughts:

  • The Jackson estate also issued a statement to People.com “This so-called ‘documentary’ is just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations.”

    Although the reactions to the movie were strong, Robson and Safechuck received a standing ovation at Sundance after the film had ended, according to TMZ.

    The documentary will debut to the viewing public on HBO in Spring 2019.
