PEOPLE REACT TO THE MICHAEL JACKSON DOCUMENTARY
In its new two-part documentary Leaving Neverland, HBO explores the relationshipsMichael Jackson had with Wade Robson and James Safechuck, two men who allege Jackson abused them when they were young boys in the ’80s and ’90s.
The Jackson family has denied all the allegations made in the documentary, but both Robson and Safechuck claim that sleepovers and playdates at Jackson’s estate, known as Neverland Valley Ranch, eventually turned abusive.

Many people think the documentary is powerful and important, while others have legitimate critiques on how it was made. Here are some of the most poignant reactions.
