Aaron Carter slams Michael Jackson accusers, says he wants to punch Wade Robson in the face
Aaron Carter has come out in the defense of Michael Jackson in the wake of Dan Reed's documentary 'Leaving Neverland,' in which Wade Robson and James Safechuck, two former friends of the 'King of Pop,' allege they were sexually abused as children by the singer.
According to Daily Mail, Carter, who has been friends with Jackson since 2001, hit out against both Robson and Safechuck and questioned their intentions on only coming out with their allegations after Jackson's death.
The 31-year-old also addressed a social media post that seemingly was made by Robson that claimed Carter was aware of Jackson's sexual indiscretions and insisted it was a hoax meant to tarnish his reputation.
In a three-minute-long rant, Carter brought up the fact that both Robson and Safechuck testified in Jackson's defense when previous allegations of child sexual abuse had emerged against the singer, suggesting their motivations were insincere.
"You're a grown man, and when Michael Jackson was alive, you are backing him, you are up his a**, you are kissing his a**, you are there to testify for him under oath, and then when he dies, you decide that's a good time to come out?" he said. "No, what you're doing is, you're actually stomping on an icon and a legend's grave - you're stomping his grave."
Carter also asked why neither thought to come out with their stories while Jackson was being tried on multiple counts of child molestation in 2005. "Why not do it when he was alive?" he said. "Why not do it when he was being accused of all of these molestation charges. Why not do it then and actually indict a perpetrator?"
The 31-year-old also points to his own experience with Jackson as proof that the singer is not how he's portrayed to be in 'Leaving Neverland' and that the 'King of Pop' was a mentor figure to him who gave him professional advice.
"I remember having the time of my life with Michael, I was about 15 years old," he revealed. "I hung out with Michael Jackson, I stayed at his house, I stayed in his bedroom ... it's hard for me to understand that - how am I supposed to understand that when my own personal experience with him was gentle and beautiful and loving and embracing."
Carter referenced a tweet where Wade Robson seemingly implies that he knew about Jackson's sexual abuse as well; a tweet which his lawyer rubbished as one from a "fake account," claiming his client was a victim of "several fraudulent postings and hackings."
"He's trying to tie my name into this s***?" Carter can be heard saying angrily. "I'm not that guy. I'm not the one. You lucky I got something to lose now because I would punch you in your face - I would. And then maybe I'd ask you, 'Are you telling the truth?' but I'd punch you in your face first."
