Michael Jackson Estate Blasts HBO for 'Leaving Neverland' … This is How You Repay Him??

Michael Jackson‘s rolling over in his grave, just to get stabbed in the back by HBO — the producers of the controversial documentary, “Leaving Neverland” — that’s his estate’s take, anyway.
The estate’s made no secret of its feelings about the documentary featuring 2 of MJ’s alleged molestation victims — and Wednesday night it took a shot on Twitter, posting an old promo for a Michael concert that aired on HBO.
The 1992 concert — Michael’s first to air on TV — “gave HBO their highest rated special ever” … according to the estate, which added … “Now, to repay him they give a voice to admitted liars.”
‘Neverland’ is set to premiere next week at the Sundance Film Festival, and will air on HBO after that.
It’s interesting the estate thinks a network — which, no doubt, paid Jackson to air his concert — is somehow beholden to him more than 25 years later.
That’s just not how showbiz works. Facts.
