Several international radio stations mute Michael Jackson's music over abuse claims

Michael Jackson Dropped From Some Radio Stations Following Child Sex Abuse Doc

The post was shared ahead of the documentary Leaving Neverland was aired on television, which included new allegations of sexual assault on minors by the "King of Pop".

According to numerous reports, there have been a number of radio stations across the globe that have opted to pull Michael Jackson from their playlists.

Earlier, a chain of dozens of Canadian radio stations said they would not play Jackson megahits such as "Billie Jean" and "Bad" for the time being.

In Perth, a Christian radio station also confirmed it had stopped playing Jackson's music.

"We aren't deciding whether Michael Jackson is guilty of pedophilia or not", he said in an interview on MediaWorks' station "Magic".

Michael Jackson's estate is suing HBO over the documentary, which it describes as a "public lynching" and a "tabloid character assassination".

Whilst Chandler received a reported $23 million (£17.5 million) in a settlement, Arvizo's allegations led to Jackson being put on trial in 2005.

She added that the decision will also apply to Cogeco Media stations in smaller markets in Quebec.

"Leaving Neverland explores the experiences of two young boys, James Safechuck, at age 10, and Wade Robson, at age seven, who were both befriended by Jackson".

So far - radio and streaming services haven't pulled Jackson's music but that could change as backlash grows. Others have maintained he is innocent, not believing claims made in new documentary Leaving Neverland.

The film chronicles allegations from two men who claim they were groomed and sexually abused at the hands of the singer when they were children.

Since then, it has aired on HBO in America and on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom with viewers making their feelings about the programme pretty clear on social media.

The BBC has clarified that they do not ban artists and Jackson could be played on BBC Radio.

Roxanne Pallett has returned to Instagram for the first time since her Celebrity Big Brother punch row with a message defending Michael Jackson.

This is when all broadcasters are moving to act in-between all this pressure from the listeners who have seen the documentary that has torn apart Michael Jackson's grand legacy.
