Mo’Nique Defends Michael Jackson Against Oprah Winfrey’s “After Neverland”2 weeks ago by Amber Le in TV News, Trending
Oprah Winfrey is currently receiving a lot of backlash. The controversial HBO documentary, Leaving Neverland is tearing communities apart. There doesn’t seem to be an in-between and it’s clear who’s on who’s side. After the documentary aired, Winfrey did an interview special with the two accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck. Many public figures are speaking out regarding their stance on the Michael Jackson subject, Mo’Nique was one of them.
Everyone adores Oprah and what she’s done for people. It’s almost as if she could do no wrong but this time around, many are giving her backlash when it comes to the After Neverland segment. The actress had a few words for the talk show host along with a few questions as to why she would invite the two men on her show, first referring to the court case back in the early 2000s.
“Here’s a man [Michael Jackson] that was found not guilty in the eyes of the law. And you wait 10 years after this man was deceased, to now do an interview with people who said they lied… For me, it’s sad and disheartening. That man welcomed you in his home and you spoke of how beautiful, and all the love this man has shown children all over the world.”
She then proceeds to bring up another case that was thrown out in 2014 that had Robson’s name written on it.
“When we’re calling someone a molester and they’re no longer here… Michael Jackson is not here to defend himself, which is a major problem. He was found not guilty… then you come back and allow these two men to get on your platform and tell this story, and that man cannot defend himself, who does that?”
