Michael Jackson is undeniably considered to be one of the greatest musicians of all time with hits such as Thriller, Bad, Billie Jean, Beat It and Smooth Criminal. Don’t forget about his legacy as a dancer too.
But Jackson’s life was embroiled with multiple allegations of child sexual abuse like a looming cloud that hung over his head since 1993.
And now that allegations resurfaced, actress and singer Barbra Streisand said something so horrifying about his accusers that it will make your jaw drop.
Michael Jackson could never escape the stigma that he was an alleged pedophile since the early 1990’s and the fact that he had an amusement park on his infamous Neverland Ranch, inviting children to stay with him, didn’t exactly help his case.
They both went into explicit stomach-churning details about his sexual abuse.
Although the documentary, ultimately, is very convincing, and the accusers stories even aligned in a way that gave them credibility.
Like with anything, there was backlash and outrage from people who didn’t believe Robson and Safechuck because they refused to believe one of the most iconic music symbols of all time would be capable of such heinous acts.
But actress and singer Barbra Streisand took it to a whole other level when she said the kids “were thrilled to be there,” at his Neverland Ranch and that when it came to Robson and Safechuck, it “didn’t kill them.”
She obviously didn’t get the memo that they were young children who couldn’t process the reality of the situation, if the allegations are true. Amazing that she actually believes it was okay because at the end of the day it,“didn’t kill them.”
If you think that was the worst of it then you’re wrong. Streisand said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”
She told The Times, “His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has. You can say ‘molested,’ but those children, as you heard say [grown-up Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”
There is a subtle implication and distinction that she’s making here too. That being it’s okay to do that as long as you’re an icon. Everyone else abides by the same rules. That’s perverted and downright sick that she thinks it’s acceptable by anybody.
Needless to say, everybody torched her across both aisles and from all industries.
One Twitter user, Lisa Bee, summed it up best about the atrociousness of her comments by saying, “As a lifelong fan, I am deeply disappointed about your remarks regarding Michael Jackson. I don’t understand how you could be so dismissive of the abuse that he inflicted and the damage that’s been done. It’s so unsympathetic to ALL victims of sexual abuse.”
Many celebrities were shocked that she would say something like that. After all, she still remains Hollywood royalty.

Still, if she really believes what she said, and it looks like she does, Streisand needs to see a psychiatrist ASAP.
