Embarrassing
11 November 2019 | by jonsnow-80520See all my reviews

You can't have a documentary about this subject without barely mentioning the man who changed the world and this venue forever, Michael J Jackson.

Obviously HBO did not put him in the doc because of the ongoing lawsuit against his estate. The allegations against him has all been debunked and his accusers have been proven to be both criminals and scammers. There has to be something wrong with those who still defend these proven liars after everything that has come out about them
