Michael Jackson accuser Wade Robson doesn't mind if people continue to listen to his music: 'It's not my concern'
Wade Robson revealed in an interview with TMZ that he did not listen to Michael Jackson's music anymore and added that he didn't care if others did
Wade Robson has found himself in the spotlight following the release of Dan Reed's HBO documentary 'Leaving Neverland' in which he and James Safechuck opened up about being sexually abused as children by Michael Jackson. Robson has now said that it's not his place to dictate how people react to the allegations made against the singer.
In an interview with TMZ, Robson confessed that he no longer listened to any of Jackson's music, but insisted that it was everyone's personal decision on whether or not they wanted to continue listening to the 'King of Pop.'
"That's not really my concern," Robson said when asked about the increasing number of people and stations boycotting Jackson's music. "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]," he explained further. "I don't listen to his music because I have a personal experience with it. But that's everyone's individual choice."
Speaking to NME earlier this month, Reed himself seemed unsure whether he would continue to listen to Jackson after 'Leaving Neverland.' "I probably would," he confessed. "But that's because I have a professional interest."
He continued, "Would I listen to his music as a punter? Most of the people who watch the film say they can't bear to listen to his tracks anymore. I have no ax to grind about that. If people can't listen to him anymore and feel repulsed, repelled, revolted, then so be it.
"Can people ever listen to his music again knowing that he is a prolific child rapist, as I believe he was? Jackson's music has been part of people's precious memories for so long I certainly wouldn't advocate shutting it down."
Singer Aaron Carter, who has been friends with Jackson since 2001, had previously criticized the intentions of Robson and Safechuck and asked why they had not come out with their allegations while the singer was still alive.
"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 in a three-minute rant. "No, what you're doing is, you're actually stomping on an icon and a legend's grave — you're stomping his grave."
Robson claimed during his interview that the disapproval of disbelievers such as Carter did not bother him. "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, I stay focused on that."
