Michael Jackson is in the news again. Even though he already passed away, his issues were still left circulating. In 1996, he had his trial in California to clear and settle all cases of molestation and child abuse, including Jordan Chandler (1993) and Macaulay Culkin. Apparently, the raw footage was not released, not until recently, it surfaced on the social media and the cyberspace.
In the video, you can see Michael Jackson’s rare approach to answering questions. The body language seemed odd with his fedora hat, black suit, and red polo garment.
His flourishing singing career was clouded with accusations such as him being a pedophile of an abuser.
Questions such as: “Were you aware that Jordan Chandler, or his family on his behalf, filed a litigation against you?” “To your knowledge, Mr. Jackson, were you ever accused of having sexually molested Brett Barnes?” “To your knowledge, were you ever accused of having sexually molested Macaulay?” were asked. Michael only had a few nods and “Yes” to answer.
His attorney requested him to be careful in answering off-the-camera.
He knew that he’d been surrounded with issues, so he listed them on a sheet and provided the court with his version. He broke his silence. “If people hear a lie long enough, people believe it. People have lied on me. I’m a black American and I’m proud of it, and I’m honored of it..”
Michael Jackson just followed the scriptures, that’s why he put himself near the kids. He stressed out that the innocence and purity of a child should be imbibed by the people, as it is what Jesus told us to do.
He proved that his skin situation was not intentional. “The bleached skin rumor … which is a rumor, I don’t bleach my skin. They once said I wanted a white kid to play me as a child, which was a rumor.”
Also, he was not gay, according to him.
Move on and honor his works. His art and soul is more than his allegations.
