BBC Radio Bans Michael Jackson’s Music

Action Follows Shocking Allegations In HBO’s ‘Leaving Neverland’ Documentary

British radio listeners won’t be hearing any Michael Jackson songs on BBC Radio 2, with the Sunday Times reporting the nationwide radio station has “quietly dropped the King of Pop’s music from its playlists” due to the shocking allegations in “Leaving Neverland”, the controversial HBO documentary set to air on Sunday, March 3 and Monday, March 4.
.
Directed by Dan Reed, “Leaving Neverland” details the horrific accusations of Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 41, who both allege that the “Thriller” singer sexually abused them when they were children.“We consider each piece of music on its merits and decisions on what we play on different networks are always made with relevant audiences and context in mind,” a spokesperson for BBC Radio 2 told NME.

First, I was not a big MJ fan, his talent and music is of the highest grade though in the pop music category. But let me add thoughts.

First off, where was all this new found outrage when he was alive? The BBC (big black c**k sucking) liberal, self-righteous British Broadcasting Corp. are not going to play MJ’s music based on the new rhetoric of others. NO DAMN TRIAL, NO CONVICTION! HELL JUST DIG THE DAMN BODY UP AND PUT IT ON TRIAL FER GOD SAKE!

Yeah, crucify a DEAD MAN in all your condemning, self-righteousnes. OH WAIT! THE BBC!!! That is the network that had JIMMY ‘PEDOPHILE’ SAVILLE work for it and the HEADS OF THIS PUTREFYING GOVERNMENT RUN CORP KNEW ABOUT THIS MAN! AND WAITE YEAH THEY ALSO KNEW FOR YEARS ABOUT MUSLIM RAPE GANGS OF YOUNG BRITISH GIRLS AND REPORTED NOTHING! OH YEAH AND THEY VIGILANTLY TRY TO CRUCIFY TOMMY ROBINSON WHO EXPRESSES HIS FREE SPEECH TO INFORM BRITS ABOUT THE ISLAMIC CULTURE PROBLEMS OF JOLLY OLD ENGLAND!! FCUK YOU! YOU DAMN HYPOCRITES!

Again MJ was not my cup of tea music wise and yes the rumors about him were abound, but NO CONVICTIONS OF SUCH WHEN HE WAS ALIVE! But now dead what 8+ years the smug self righteous BBC along with others and a few people who say they were victims and NOW IT’S CRUCIFY MJ! I’VE GOT SOME BAD NEWS FOR YOU SUNSHINE! HE’S ALREADY DEAD, YOU SELF RIGHTEOUS HYPOCRITES! How can he defend himself now you aholes?

Am I peeved? YES because this is a nonsense story about a bullshit British government run broadcaster trying to virtue signal when its own history is steeped in lawlessness . 🙁

Let me first say I am not fully versed on everything regarding alledged charges against MJ but I always have concerns especially today with so many unfounded accusations against anyone without hard evidence and due process.

As an example in the Cosby case i believe that Cosby would have once again been found not guilty had the second trial taken place before “Me Too”.

We only need to look at the Politically motivated Kavanaugh Hearing and Charges to see that without Due Process with hard verifiable evidence Justice can very quickly turn into No Justice.

Far to often today we see false accusations and claims turn out to be crimes themselves, simply consider the Smolette Fiasco. Thank God for a diligent Chicago PD, they showed great courage and honesty in following through with their investigation regardless of being vilified for years on almost everything they have done. IMHO Media did/has not done enough to give credit to that
Police Department, the CPD work under very difficult circumstances with runaway violent crime and a disgustingly corrupt and dishonest Mayor hampering their every move.

In the case of MJ I tend to agree with everything you said except for one thing, I liked the Music and Talent of MJ very much and I am now torn.

Again I am not sure about any of the accusations and evidence presentedagainst MJ and I am frankly sick of the he said she said, he said he said, without hard evidence proven in a court of law.

Far too many Hypocrites with far too many politically motivated and monetary interests out to gain something and anything for me to fall into lockstep with any unfounded accusatiins or allegations regardless of the source.

The BBC. CNN, CBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, WaPo, NYT, LA Times, MSNBC, and far too many more are motivated and influenced by their own agenda and none of them have a very good relationship with Respect, Truth, Honour, Balance or Fair Play.

Interesting how much of that applies to Canadian PM Justin and several of his Staff and fellow MP’s.
