Barbra Streisand Facing Backlash Over "Leaving Neverland" Comments

March 23, 2019

Barbra Streisand has been receiving a heavy backlash from a couple of recent comments about Michael Jackson and the HBO documentary "Leaving Neverland". Streisand said, "His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has" and "You can say 'molested', but those children, as you heard [the grown-up Robson and Safechuck> say, they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them" while referring the two men featured in the documentary. Streisand's comments drew quick criticism from the director of the documentary Dan Reed and hordes of people online.
