In the last few weeks since Leaving Neverland aired in the US and UK, multiple radio stations have stopped playing Jackson’s music. Similarly, shows like Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor will not be using his songs going forward. The late star has been accused by Wade Robson and James Safechuck of sexually abusing them when they were children during their visits to his Neverland Ranch. Despite the allegations, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is not removing Jackson from the famous museum in Cleveland, Ohio.
Jackson was voted into the Hall twice by music historians, musicians and music industry professionals.
The first time was in 1997 with the Jackson 5 and again in 2001 for his solo career.
According to TMZ, Jackson’s exhibit and recognition will not be removed for the simple reason that “music is music is music.”
Allegedly, the Hall of Fame said it recognises musical excellence that had a lasting impact on rock ’n’ roll, which Jackson did.
Robson told TMZ: “That’s not really my concern. I mean that’s everybody’s individual journey.
“If I have any hope it’s just that we question in general who it is that we’re worshipping and why. So it’s beyond Michael.
“I don’t have any moral authority to make a judgement for everyone else on that.
“I don’t listen to his music because I have a personal experience with it. But that’s everyone’s individual choice.”
