Oprah Winfrey’s interview has spearheaded a controversy among people from the industry and Michael Jackson fans from all around the world.

After HBO fully released the four-hour and two-part documentary Leaving Neverland about Michael Jackson's dark life, Oprah Winfrey has an exclusive interview with the two men in the story, James Safechuck and Wade Robson and director Dan Reed.

In an hour-long interview ‘Oprah Winfrey Presents: After Neverland’, the Queen of all Media invited sexual harassment survivors to the studio. Oprah Winfrey, who is also a survivor said Dan Reed did an excellent job of presenting the real meaning of child sexual abuse that she has been trying to say - paedophile not only a kind of abuse but also in the form of seduction toward children.



“It is much bigger than any one person. This is a moment in time that allows us to see this societal corruption. It’s like a scourge on humanity,” Winfrey spoke eloquently.

Even though Michael Jackson’s estate has brought legal charges against HBO, termed Robson and Safechuck as liars and Jackson’s fans from all around the world express their rage, Winfrey still conducts the interview.

Winfrey began her conversation by asking: “Did you know you were being abused, and you were just defending Michael Jackson?”.


James Safechuck later narrated the same terrible story which happened to him, said Micheal seduced him that: “If you’re caught, we’re caught, your life is over, my life is over.”

Robson decided to disclose his sexual abuse story only when he underwent a nervous breakdown after realising what happened to him and what may happen to his son. And that is the first moment he ever thought he needs to tell someone about this horrible experience. Safechuck also shared that he finds the courage to speak out after he knew he wasn’t the only victim.

“Now I’m able to tell the truth”, said Wade Robson

When being asked if the two accusers are looking for compensation, Leaving Neverland director Dan Reed further explained his purpose of making the documentary. First of all, he said that the film wasn’t about Michael but the molestation case between him and Wade and James.

Talking about his aim this time when he decided to detailed his story, Wade Robson who hauled the matter into court before said he was trained to lie but now he needs to uncover the truth.

“I wanted to get on the stand again, because now I’m able to tell the truth,” Wade said.

At the end of the interview, Oprah Winfrey received thunderous applause for saying that they are now preparing for all the anger but ready to face it.
