STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE

“STOP IN THE NAME OF LOVE” was a reference to her biggest hit with the supreme. She voiced out her support for Michael Jackson with Barbra Striesand. Michael Jackson was alleged because of the HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland” where he was accused of sexual harassment by two men when they were children. Two men were Wade Robson and James Sahechuck. The documentary has seriously damaged Michael Jackson’s legacy.
They said they suffered a lot because of sexual abuse as an adult.

Streisand, 76, said she had “a combination of feelings. I feel bad for the children. I feel bad for him. I blame, I guess, the parents, who would allow their children to sleep with him.”
“His sexual needs were his sexual needs,” said Streisand, “coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has.” When she met him, she said, she found him “very sweet, very childlike”.

Streisand posted an apology online. “I am profoundly sorry for any pain or misunderstanding I caused by not choosing my words more carefully about Michael Jackson and his victims,” she wrote.
“I didn’t mean to dismiss the trauma these boys experienced in any way … Like all survivors of sexual assault, they will have to carry this for the rest of their lives. I feel deep remorse and I hope that James and Wade know that I truly respect and admire them for speaking their truth.”
Jackson’s estate, which has made $2.1bn (£1.6bn) since the singer’s death, has called Leaving Neverland “an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson”. They said they will save Jackson’s name in any circumstance.
