Stop Leaving Neverland Now

The 2019 Sundance Film Festival is set to premiere Leaving Neverland later this month. The film is a new two-part 233 minute Dan Reed documentary, focusing on the alleged sexual abuse of Wade Robson and James Safechuck by Michael Jackson.

Following initial confusion around who the subjects of the documentary might be, the website for Reed’s Amos Pictures clearly shows a photo with Jackson and Robson, who testified in Michael Jackson’s 2005 criminal trial as a defence witness, and then later sued Michael Jackson’s Estate claiming he was molested after-all, only to have his case thrown out in 2017. 

A representative for Michael Jackson’s Estate has commented “This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson. Wade Robson and James Safechuck [who was Jackson’s companion as a child and sued Jackson’s estate over sexual abuse claims] have both testified under oath that Michael never did anything inappropriate toward them. Safechuck and Robson, the latter a self-proclaimed ‘master of deception,’ filed lawsuits against Michael’s estate, asking for millions of dollars. Both lawsuits were dismissed. This so-called ‘documentary’ is just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations.  It’s baffling why any credible filmmaker would involve himself with this project.”

Join with us in demanding that this production does not go ahead. We must demand that the Michael Jackson estate pursues legal action and shuts this documentary down.

Dear Sirs,
I am writing to implore you to take immediate legal action over a new film accusing Michael Jackson of molesting two boys.

Sundance Film Festival has announced plans to screen a film titled Leaving Neverland, in which Wade Robson and James Safechuck will accuse Michael Jackson of grooming and molesting them over a years-long period. 
These two men, as you know, were behind a lawsuit which the Estate successfully had thrown out of court in 2017.

It goes without saying that in the wake of the #MeToo movement and the move towards trial by media over allegations against celebrities, this film poses the most existential threat to Michael Jackson’s reputation and legacy since his death in 2009.

For roughly the last five years, the Estate has used its vast resources to mount legal challenge after legal challenge to frustrate and delay a lawsuit by Vera Serova over the inclusion of three fake songs on a posthumous album. It has also used its clout to suppress a positive documentary about Michael Jackson’s final photo shoots.

So fans around the world are now questioning why the Estate is not using its power and resources to try to block the release of this extremely dangerous film, which has the potential to completely decimate Michael Jackson’s reputation forever.

In 2017, a campaign by Michael Jackson’s family and fans successfully blocked the release of a film in which Michael Jackson was to be portrayed in a demeaning way by the white actor Joseph Fiennes.

That film was merely insensitive. This film could destroy Michael Jackson’s reputation forever. The Michael Jackson fan community therefore calls upon you to employ every legal resource and avenue available to you to frustrate, impede and sabotage this film in any and every conceivable way.

    Estimados señores,

    le escribo para pedirle que tome medidas legales inmediatas sobre una nueva película en la que se acusa a Michael Jackson de abusar sexualmente de dos niños.

    El Festival de Cine de Sundance ha anunciado planes para proyectar una película titulada Leaving Neverland, en la que Wade Robson y James Safechuck acusarán a Michael Jackson de acicalarlos y abusar de ellos durante un período de un año.
    Como ustedes saben, estos dos hombres estaban detrás de una demanda que el Estado había desestimado con éxito en la corte en 2017.

    No hace falta decir que a raíz del movimiento #MeToo y el avance hacia el juicio por parte de los medios de comunicación sobre las acusaciones contra celebridades, este La película representa la amenaza más existencial para la reputación y el legado de Michael Jackson desde su muerte en 2009.

    Durante aproximadamente los últimos cinco años, el estado ha utilizado sus vastos recursos para montar un desafío legal después de un desafío legal para frustrar y retrasar una demanda de Vera Serova por la inclusión de tres canciones falsas en un álbum póstumo. También ha utilizado su influencia para suprimir un documental positivo sobre las sesiones de fotos finales de Michael Jackson.

    Entonces, los fanáticos de todo el mundo ahora se preguntan por qué el Estado no está usando su poder y sus recursos para intentar bloquear el lanzamiento de esta película extremadamente peligrosa, que tiene el potencial de diezmar completamente la reputación de Michael Jackson para siempre.

    En 2017, una campaña de la familia de Michael Jackson y sus fanáticos bloquearon con éxito el estreno de una película en la que Michael Jackson sería retratado de manera degradante por el actor blanco Joseph Fiennes.

    Esa película era simplemente insensible. Esta película podría destruir la reputación de Michael Jackson para siempre. La comunidad de fans de Michael Jackson, por lo tanto, le pide que emplee todos los recursos legales y avenidas disponibles para frustrar, impedir y sabotear esta película de cualquier manera posible.

    Thanks for this information. I will send an email to The Estate etc within the next day.

    I’m very angry that this trash documentary is being shown at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Especially as these Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck have no credibility since their false and very exaggerated claims have very recently been thrown out by a court of law.

  4. Ben Scarr

    I’ve sent an email to The Estate. Michael Jackson’s legal representatives have to launch a very tough fight back. I’m sure this documentary will sink in to oblivion.

    Email was sent and this site was shared on my FB account. This hurts my heart that these evildoers are trying to make money anyway they can with Michael’s name. By my faith I pray and believe it wont happen. God bless you.

    Sending an email to the estate right now. Sickened and disgusted by yet another attempt to defame Michael’s character using a very public platform. Such a malicious production should not be permitted to air. Not at all surprised as to who is involved. Michael’s enduring legacy is still in the making, he is not here to defend and fight for himself. Will reach out to the estate and implore them to take immediate and unrelenting action to fight for him and shut this down. Thank you Jamon and all at the MJCast for launching your response and rallying support for Michael.

    Enough is enough 10 years he passed away he was found innocent and is innocent . Makes me sick that people are still trying to get money by tarnishing his good name

  8. Jessica Torres

    Enough is enough with these stupid MJ haters. I’m sick and tired of all there lies and tabloids. I don’t know why they can’t just leave him alone now and let him rest in peace. He is innocent a d didn’t do anything to hurt people or a child. He loves children and nature at that. I get so annoyed when i hear them scrutinize him. I wish they would stop now. It’s really pathetic that they think they can just keep on more and more even after he’s gone. I love michael and will defend him in every way possible and i will help all the MJ fans defend him and help to stop those haters from criticising him. Hell with them haters and money hungry freaks. Enough is enough 😡😡😡.

    Lords of the legacy of Michael Jackson, should take action on the subject about the documentary that will be shown at The Sundance Film Festival 2019 will be released later this month, Leaving Neverland. The film is a new documentary by Dan Reed in 233 minutes, which focuses on the alleged sexual abuse of Wade Robson and James Safechuck by Michael Jackson. They have the duty to defend their legacy, for their children, for their family, for us fans and of course for Michael Jackson.

    Michael was found innocent of ALL charges. Also, he has passed so can’t even defend himself. I feel he was brutally treated by Tom Sneddon and feel it was a personal attack. Please don’t let them show this film and one more time tarnish his memory .

  12. clotilde

    after all the damage caused by the trial where Michael was found innocent, that the FBI recognized him, too, innocent, his fans knew it innocent, it is inadmissible to see that this film can be shown to destroy the dignity, Michael’s integrity; the estate, which is there to protect Michael, must by all means prevent its exit
