Madonna Defends Michael Jackson: “I Don’t Have A Lynch-Mob Mentality”

Published: Tuesday 7th May 2019 by Sam

For many, Madonna is the Queen of Pop. It’s natural, then, that her opinion was sought on the King Of Pop Michael Jackson in light of disparaging accusations screened in what some have deemed a “mockumentary.”

Ever outspoken, Madge didn’t shy away from the topic when quizzed during a recent interview with British Vogue to promote her new album ‘Madame X’ (due June 14th).

Her words below…

While expressing that she’d not seen the production, she did stress:

I don’t have a lynch-mob mentality, so in my mind, people are innocent until proven guilty

I’ve had a thousand accusations hurled at me that are not true. So my attitude when people tell me things about people is, ‘Can you prove it?'”

When asked squarely about what would sway her, she said:

 “I don’t know, I haven’t seen the film. “But I guess it would be people recounting actual events – but then, of course, people sometimes lie.

So I always say, ‘What’s the agenda? What do people want out of this? Are there people asking for money, is there some kind of extortion thing happening?. I would take all of those things into consideration.” [Source]

Though tactful with her words, Madonna’s comments function as the latest in a long line of high-profile support for Jackson. Indeed, in the wake of the doc (which lost out to viewers of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta), the likes of Diana Ross, T.I, and Justin Bieber re-affirmed that they’re standing by MJ.

As at writing, the production is at the center of a $100 million defamation lawsuit the Michael Jackson Estate have levelled against the cable network that aired the doc in March.

    He is not here to defend himself & I don’t care how much detailed these men tell a story, they have to still show me the PROOF. They have had YEARS TO PERFECT THEIR LIES. THEY HAVE HAD YEARS TO READ UP ON HOW TO MAKE THIS LOOK AS REAL AS POSSIBLE. I do not believe them.

      That documentary was full of LIES and timeline errors! The documentary also had ZERO witnesses to back up the claims. With the numerous Neverland staff and security guards surely if they were telling the truth there would be some ex-staffers who would back up their claims. Wade and Safechuck are opportunists who went after MJ’s children after he died. The only people who will be hurt by this is MJ’s children at the end of the day.

        Definitely liars and I am not here for the MJ slander either. All this bs is sadly is what I believe put Mike in an early grave too. If MJ is guilty of anything its being too trusting to snakes waiting to bite and rats readying to get some cheese.
