Michael Jackson was a singer and dancer who changed the entertainment world forever once he set foot upon the stage. There are statues of him placed everywhere so that his legacy will never be forgotten. However, due to some allegations that have been made against Jackson, a museum in Manchester has taken their Michael Jackson statue down. What in the world could he have done for them to do such a thing? Through a four hour documentary that aired on television in the UK on Wednesday, March 6th, Wade Robson and James Safechuck claimed that Jackson sexually abused them for several years.

Since the release of the documentary, the National Football Museum in Manchester has decided to remove the statue. Jackson’s family claims that he did no such thing and that the documentary is slandering his name. Therefore, they are suing HBO, the company which co-produced the documentary. “Although the museum did not explicitly connect the statue’s removal to allegations against the singer, the fallout from “Leaving Neverland” has led to some fans boycotting the singer and has prompted radio stations in Canada and New Zealand to stop playing his music” (Picheta CNN).

Jackson’s family still claims that he is completely innocent, yet cases that were dismissed during the time span of his music career say something quite different. In 2003 and 2004, he was accused of TWO different child molestation cases. He never got sentenced and was able to live out his career with a squeaky clean record.
