Michael Jackson's nephew is crowdfunding a docuseries to exonerate MJ




· Michael Jackson's nephew Taj (son of Tito) has launched a GoFundMe to produce a docuseries aimed at rebutting child sex abuse claims made in the upcoming documentary Leaving Neverland, set to premiere tomorrow at the Sundance Film Festival. Leaving Neverland was financed by Channel 4 and HBO and details allegations made by two men who say they were groomed and sexually abused by Michael in the 1990s
· After the documentary premiere was announced, fans took to twitter to implore Sundance to remove the doc from its lineup, contacting Sundance's sponsors and using the hashtag #StopLeavingNeverlandNOW
· Since announcing the project, Taj has tweeted to Michael's fans that he plans to cover "fraudulent claims" made by the men in Leaving Neverland, as well as Michael's charity work and vitiligo and "falsehoods" surrounding the abuse claims levied against Michael. He says this "will be the definitive historic record of the most discussed aspects of Michael Jackson's private life, placing the most controversial stories under the microscope, tracing their origins and dissecting how and why the media's narrative diverged from the truth"
· The GoFundMe has raised $23,575 (of its $777,000 goal) from 607 people in 3 days. Taj said he chose to crowdfund the project, rather than seek investors, because investors would want creative input and might manipulate the story
