New York, NY – Like so many others, Pete Rock observed the uproar surrounding the late Michael Jackson after HBO aired the Leaving Neverland documentary earlier this month. The two-part collection revolves round Wade Robson and James Safechuck who allege the King Pop sexually abused them as kids.
As a consequence, radio stations worldwide banned Jackson’s music, The Simpsons‘ creators axed a basic episode that includes the pop legend and Drake reportedly pulled the music “Don’t Matter To Me” that includes Jackson’s vocals from his present setlist.
Rock took his ideas to Instagram the place he posted a regal wanting picture Jackson and insisted he wasn’t responsible.
“A True King!!” he wrote within the caption. “Owned all dat music made you the king the music trade. They mad at you! Your harmless however even in dying they wont go away you alone. The Greatest artist/musician on the earth. The King Michael Jackson RIP.”
The Leaving Neverland documentary continues the age-old debate “can the artwork be separated from the artist?”
In the case R. Kelly, it seems it’s changing into more and more tough to easily ignore their previous conduct. Following Lifetime’s Surviving R. Kelly documentary, the #MuteRKelly motion was reignited and a consequence, his music will not be solely being pulled from the airwaves, whole cities don’t need Kelly to ever step foot on their soil once more.
Kelly has since been indicted on 10 counts aggravated sexual abuse.
