In the wake of HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary focusing on child-molestation accusations against pop star Michael Jackson, some radio stations have begun to remove the artist's songs from rotation. On Monday, three Canadian stations pulled the plug on MJ after the controversial series aired over the weekend. Now, two New Zealand stations have followed suit.
MediaWorks and NZME have said they will not play Jackson’s songs at this time.
The film has struck a chord due to graphic accusations by two men -- Wade Robson and James Safechuck -- who detail the abuse they reportedly suffered while spending time at Jackson’s Neverland ranch as children in the '90s.
