The comedian Monique who has been embroiled in battles with her fellow celebrities over the last few months is now lashing out at Oprah Winfrey. She has issues with the overall presentation of Winfrey’s interview with the two alleged victims in the HBO documentary entitled “Leaving Neverland”.
For me, it’s sad and disheartening. That man welcomed you in his home and you spoke of how beautiful, and all the love this man has shown children all over the worldMonique
The actress also went on to state that Michael Jackson was found not guilty in court and has been buried six feet deep for almost a decade.
Here’s a man that was found not guilty in the eyes of the law and you wait for 10 years after this man was deceased, to now do an interview with people who said they liedMonique
When we’re calling someone a molester and they’re no longer here…Michael Jackson is not here to defend himself, which is a major problemMonique
Monique continued to explain why she had a problem with Oprah using her platform for the accusers for a post HBO airing of the documentary interview.
[He was] found not guilty…then you come back and you allow these two men to get on your platform and tell this story, and that man cannot defend himself, who does that?Monique
