Michael Jackson Used His 'The Simpsons' Episode 'To Groom Boys'

Michael Jackson Used His 'The Simpsons' Episode 'To Groom Boys'

Last week, the Michael Jackson blacklisting hit television, with longstanding tv show The Simpsons pulling their Michael Jackson episode "Stark Raving Dad" from circulation.

James L. Brooks told The Wall Street Journal last week that "Stark Raving Dad" was a "treasured episode" that was hard to dismiss.

About one week ago, Jean, Simpsons executive producer James L. Brooks and Simpsons creator Matt Groening all made the executive decision to pull the episode after they all saw the Leaving Neverland documentary, which detailed Jackson's alleged pedophilia. "I don't believe in going through and making judgments on every guest star and saying 'this one was bad, that one was bad, ' but the episode itself has a false objective, and that's what I object to about it now". "That, to me, is my belief, and it's why I think removing it is appropriate".

When The Daily Beast asked about Michael Jackson's role in penning the song, "Happy Birthday Lisa", Al Jean did not elaborate further, noting that the episode viewed from the perspective of the documentary feels unusual.

Michael Jackson voiced Leon Kompowsky in the 1991 episode of The Simpsons called Stark Raving Dad. "I don't believe in going through and making judgments on every guest star and saying "this one was bad, that one was bad", but the episode itself has a false goal, and that's what I object to about it now", said Jean.


"I really don't know, and I should be very careful because this is not something I know personally, but as far as what I think, that's what I think", he continued.

"Me and my [boyfriend] re-enacted "the californians" from SNL while we were in nola purely for the entertainment of our friends, and paps happened to be taking pictures of it all and.... y'all it looks like a full on break-up scene in a sad drama movie [oh my God]", she wrote, addressing recent photographs that surfaced showing her and her boyfriend appearing to be in a fight while in the streets of New Orleans.

Paris Jackson says she has her father's "moral compass.but not the level of patience".

"I am aware that in light of this documentary the show has caused emotional reactions", Louis Vuitton's men's artistic director Virgil Abloh said in an exclusive statement shared with WWD.
