T.I. is slamming the HBO documentary, “Leaving Neverland,” and calling for an investigation into other controversial dead celebrities, like Elvis Presley and Hugh Hefner, saying there is an “agenda to destroy” the black culture.
The rapper posted a snippet from an old interview of Michael Jackson talking to Pierce Morgan back in 1999 and wrote, “Let this man speak for himself to defend his legacy. Don’t just listen to one side and expect to find truth. Oh that’s right…Dead men can’t speak.”
The “Whatever You Like” star believes there is a plot to “destroy OUR CULTURE” and thinks society should look into some other legends with alleged questionable pasts, who also happen to be white.
“So what was the point again? Destroy another strong black historical LEGEND?!?! It’s several examples of pedophilia in American History… if y’all pulling up all our old shit… we gotta examine ELVIS PRESLEY, HUGH HEPHNER [sic],and a whole slew of others guilty of the same if not more!!! BUT WHY US all the time? There’s an agenda to destroy OUR CULTURE,” T.I. wrote.
He also shared a tweet claiming not every person who spends time with children is an alleged pedophile. He believes the accusations against MJ are “assaults against OUR CULTURE!!! Make no mistake of it!!!”
The HBO documentary “Leaving Neverland” caused waves by airing sit-down interviews with Michael’s alleged victims Wade Robson and James Safechuck.
As we reported, sources close to the estate and family of Michael Jackson believe Robson only participated in the HBO documentary to boost his own fame, and have pointed out inconsistencies over the years in his allegations of abuse regarding the late singer.
