With the mainstream media being questioned now more than ever due to its coverage in the last few months with coronavirus, George Floyd, and Black Lives Matter, people are going back to other times in media history now to re-imagine certain stories. Many are speculating on how much systemic racism has played a apart in some of the biggest cases in history.
#MichaelJacksonVindicated Michael Jackson was destroyed by the media and the false allegations like no other celebrity/person in the history. He was betrayed by his closest ones but through all this he was proven innocent inside and outside the courtroom. pic.twitter.com/xpCWo2nQj3

One of those examples at the moment is the trial of Michael Jackson and how the media may have portrayed the “King Of Pop”. On Twitter a hashtag has appeared #MichaelJacksonVindicated which some are saying he was not portrayed correctly and was always innocent, while others do not believe “Micahel Jackson Vindicated” should be something trending as they believe he is still guilty although he was never actually found guilty in court for the well documented accusations. It seems recent activities have shone a new light on the latest accusations stemming from the “Leaving Neverland” documentary.

It is time to take a good look at the typical black man who has been oppressed by racism. The white society is not happy that a black man can have such outstanding achievements #MichaelJacksonVindicated pic.twitter.com/2PChTcV52l

Wade Robson actually cautioned off all of his MJ memorabilia on Julia’s Auctions prior to his intial claim against Michael back in 2013. The end scene where Wade is “burning” the stuff MJ gifted him were all store bought and not authentic.#MichaelJacksonVindicated pic.twitter.com/9zXl1G9Gn6

If a black man is the largest and most profitable one-man company that has ever existed in history, and he also came from one of the poorest areas of the 🇺🇸 , that's a reason to celebrate, not to defame! I am proud to be his fan!!! #MichaelJacksonVindicated pic.twitter.com/fRzPI8z2i9

On 13 June 2005 Michael Jackson was acquitted of all charges. However due to biased media reporting he was prosecuted in the court of public opinion.
