The Simpsons showrunner thinks Michael Jackson used his episode to "groom" boys

Simpsons boss reveals why Michael Jackson episode was canceled: ‘He used it to groom boys’

When asked about Jackson's history with The Simpsons, which includes voicing New Jersey bricklayer Leon Kompowsky (who sings "Happy Birthday, Lisa") and providing back-up vocals for the 1990 novelty hit "Do the Bartman", showrunner Al Jean told the Daily Beast that although he's disappointed to see "Stark Raving Dad" go, "it's something I agree with completely". "It's from the heart, on our part, and I think Jim [Brooks] put it really well".

In the episode, Homer Simpson ends up taking Leon home to help son Bart celebrate daughter Lisa's birthday. "I don't believe in going through and making judgments on every guest star and saying 'this one was bad, that one was bad, ' but the episode itself has a false goal, and that's what I object to about it now". "And that makes me very, very sad". He wasn't entirely a Cosby parody either, which is why I don't think anybody looks at the character now and says "Oh, that's Bill Cosby".

Jackson featured in the 1991 episode "Stark Raving Dad", which was one of their most successful from the show's third season.

"I don't believe in going through and making judgments on every guest star and saying "this one was bad, that one was bad", but the episode itself has a false goal, and that's what I object to about it now", Jean explained to the Daily Beast. In this particular episode, the legend lent his voice to a character.

When asked to elaborate on what this false goal is, Jean said: "I think it was part of what he used to groom boys".

Mashable reports that purging Jackson from the legacy of "The Simpsons" will take some time - for example, there are DVDs and streaming services - and will not happen immediately, though the process has begun.

Wade Robson and James Safechuck describe incidents in graphic detail but the Michael Jackson's family have denied any wrongdoing by the singer who died in 2009.

Leaving Neverland has divided opinions since its release, with fans, viewers and even figures such as Louis Theroux speaking out about the allegations. However, the episode has been pulled from syndication after the popular HBO documentary "Leaving Neverland" renewed public interest in the late singer's various sexual misconduct and pedophilia allegations. "Relax and have peace".
