‘Leaving Neverland’ Director Dan Reed Defends ‘Leaving Neverland’

‘Leaving Neverland’ Director Dan Reed Defends ‘Leaving Neverland’

During a recent interview with Deadline, ‘Leaving Neverland’ director Dan Reed has defended his documentary against the death threats from Michael Jackson fans. He said:

“It certainly hasn’t cowed either me or HBO. I stand by every second of the film and so does HBO.”

He continued:

“What they both experienced was a gradual psychological and physical seduction. Jackson did not violently, brutally, break these little boys. He took his time, and he seduced them, in the way that an adult would seduce another adult, but—and this is the most horrifying thing—he treated these little children as you would a sexualized adult.”

Reed also believed that Jackson was a serial pedophile. He said:

“What’s puzzling about the case of Michael Jackson is the ferocity of the disbelief, if you like, in the stories of these two young men. At the beginning, we had a ton of emails that were very hostile, hostile death threats, and people saying awful things about me and my family.”
