Michael Jackson's Music Banned From Radio Stations All Over the World

By

The Leaving Neverland documentary has gotten a lot of people conflicted over the legacy of one of Pop Music's greatest icons, so much so that radio stations all over the world are now banning Michael Jackson's music.

To say that the reception to the documentary was divisive would be an understatement.

There are multitudes of people who are saddened, angered, and shocked by the allegations brought up by several of the people Jackson lived with on his Neverland Ranch while they were children. Although there were murmurs of the singer being guilty of child molestation in the '90s, it's now, ten years after the death of the artist, that a documentary highlighting the stories of the ranch's "survivors" on HBO that brought the long-standing story back into a large-scale social conversation.

Following the controversy, three major Montreal radio stations have decided to stop playing Jackson's music altogether. A spokesperson for the stations intimated that it had everything to do with the fervor surrounding the newly-released documentary:

"We are attentive to listeners’ comments, and last night’s documentary created reactions."
