Louis Theroux says Michael Jackson fans who think he wasn’t a paedo are ‘blind’
Jimmy Savile documentary-maker Louis Theroux has weighed in on the row over the Michael Jackson Leaving Neverland film, insisting it proves he was a child abuser.
The filmmaker launched a blistering attack on fans who still support the star as the second part of the controversial movie aired on Channel 4 tonight.
Louis, who famously interviewed Savile before he was exposed as a sexual predator, insisted that anyone who doesn’t think Jackson was a paedo is "being willfully blind".
He tweeted: "If you can’t see that Michael Jackson was a paedophile after watching danreed1000‘s film you are being wilfully blind.
"And if you are campaigning against it you are actively colluding in the silencing of victims."
W ade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, talk about their alleged abuse at the hands of the King Of Pop in the shocking film, which aired in the UK for the first time on Channel 4 this week.
It featured gruesome descriptions of child sex abuse, which left many feeling so physically ill they had to switch off.
Both Wade and James went on to explain why they never spoke out about their torment before – and even defended Jackson publicly when he was accused of molesting other boys.
The stories of grim sessions with the superstar included James’ harrowing story of being taught to masturbate by Jackson.
He described in intimate detail he was too young to ejaculate properly and his penis swelled up after excessive sexual sessions with the star.
Wade also gave a grim account of the alleged sex sessions with Jackson, describing how he would give his idol oral sex by Jackson chose not to ejaculate in his mouth.
He said one of the final acts of abuse he suffered was at the age of 14 when Jackson allegedly tried to rape him analaly.
James also gave a shocking account of a fake wedding between him and the star, even showing off the ring he’d been given by the star.
Leaving Neverland’s explosive allegations against the King Of Pop, who died in 2009, sparked outraged among some of Jackson’s most ardent fans.
It led to protests outside Channel 4 this week as Jackson’s loyal followers vented their fury over the decision to screen the movie.
The late singer’s estate has since confirmed plans to sue the documentary makers, and his family condemned the film in a scathing statement, comparing it to a "public lynching".
The Thriller hitmaker was tried on child molestations charges in 2004-2005 – but he was acquitted on every count.
He died in 2009 aged 50.
