‘I don’t have any moral authority’ - Michael Jackson accuser Wade Robson on boycotting singer’s music

MICHAEL JACKSON accuser Wade Robson has said it is “everyone’s individual choice” as to whether they boycott the singer’s music.

The comments follow the release of the documentary Leaving Neverland in which Robson and James Safechuck detail the years of alleged child sex abuse they suffered at the hands of Jackson.

In the wake of the film’s release, several radio stations have already moved to ban Jackson’s music from the radio with RTE among those to take the King of Pop off its playlists.

However, Robson believes people should make their own mind up about whether to continue listening to Jackson’s music.

Speaking in an interview with TMZ, he also hit back at any suggestion he wasn’t telling the truth in the film.

"People are going to believe whatever they want to or whatever they're ready to believe,” he said.

"I have no say in that matter... There’s been an incredible outpouring of support from friends and family and from strangers and I’m so grateful for that.

Responding to reports Jackson’s music has been boycotted by fans and broadcasters, Robson said: "That’s not really my concern. That’s everybody’s individual journey.

"If I have any hope it’s just that we question in general who it is that we’re worshipping and why. So it’s beyond Michael.

"I don’t have any moral authority to make a judgment for everyone else on [listening to Jackson’s music].

"I don’t listen to his music, ‘cause I have a personal experience with it.

"But that’s everyone’s individual choice.”
