Folks along with comedian/actress Mo’Nique are not with Oprah Winfrey’s decision to interview the two individuals who claim they were sexually abused by Michael Jackson following the airing of ‘Leaving Neverland.’
The media mogul hosted her own television special, After Neverland, where she interviewed Wade Robson and James Safechuck. Mo’Nique and with her husband Sidney Hicks shared how they felt during the latest episode of their podcast-web series “Open Relationship.” And they both disapprove of her decision.
“Here’s a man that was found not guilty in the eyes of the law,” Mo’Nique said. “And you wait for 10 years after this man was deceased, to now do an interview with people who said they lied.” The actress was referring to Jackson’s previous court trial in the early 2000s where he was accused of molesting a 13-year-old boy and was later acquitted. “For me, it’s sad and disheartening. That man welcomed you in his home and you spoke of how beautiful, and all the love this man has shown children all over the world.”
“When we’re calling someone a molester and they’re no longer here…Michael Jackson is not here to defend himself, which is a major problem. He was found not guilty…then you come back and you allow these two men to get on your platform and tell this story, and that man cannot defend himself, who does that?”
