‘I was surprised how unceasing the abuse was’: the fallout from Leaving Neverland https://t.co/GVAR7JVYdu— The Guardian (@guardian) December 18, 2019
In a new interview with the Guardian, Dan Reed, the director of Leaving Neverland, discusses the fallout of the documentary. A few points:
- He received a constant barrage of threats and emails which were sent to his film company, along with Tweets and messages telling him that he was a liar and deserved to die (obviously all from delusional MJ stans).
- Jackson stans once parked outside his office and blasted MJ's music all day from a van. Reed only found out about it because they posted a video on Twitter - he wasn't even there.
- He says that he pretty much avoid Twitter these days, and that Wade Robson and James Safechuck avoid social media for the most part.
- Reed is now thinking about making a documentary about other kinds of denialists. He doesn't care about whether people listen to Jackson's music or not, saying that, "“I’m not about cancelling Jackson. But I think people should know that he was, at times, a monster to children."
