We’ve entered a new phase of the whole #MeToo movement with HBO’s airing of the Michael-Jackson-was-a-pedo documentary, Leaving Neverland. The essential question is this: What do we do about Jackson’s music moving forward?
Some radio stations in Quebec have taken a stand, saying that Jackson is no longer welcome on any playlists. Oprah has bailed on Jackson, siding with his accusers. A Hollywood DJ says she will now refuse to play any of his music and is urging other people to do the same.
What about record stores? Tiny Record Shop in Toronto has taken a public stand, refusing to stock any of Jackson’s records.
This has resulted in a Twitter storm. Follow the thread to see how nasty this got. Wow. (Via Todd)
This discussion is going to get a lot louder and a lot more complex in the coming days and weeks.
