Following the allegations of child molestation made against Michael Jackson in the Leaving Neverland documentary, some radio stations and places of business have started to pull the King of Pop's music from their playlists. But Juice WRLD took to Twitter on Sunday to share his thoughts on the pop star's legacy moving forward.

"Rip to the legend Michael Jackson let the legend rest and his legacy stand," the Chicago native wrote.

If you recall, G Herbo repeatedly referred to Juice as the "new Michael Jackson" throughout the "Lucid Dreams" rapper's rise. "I don't give AF what nobody say. You heard it here first," he said back in October.

The 20-year-old dropped off his highly anticipated sophomore album Death Race for Love on Friday, which is well on its way to topping the Billboard 200 next week. Keeping support of the project going, Juice also decided to share the Twisted Metal-inspired "Hear Me Calling" video to kick off this week (March 11).
