Oprah Winfrey‘s interview with Michael Jackson‘s sexual abuse accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck is set to air tonight (Mar. 4), concluding the two-night HBO documentary, Leaving Neverland. Testimonies from Robson and Safechuck during night one of the documentary featured graphic details of their alleged encounters with Jackson.
In clips of Oprah Winfrey Presents: After Neverland, Winfrey says that the documentary, which was directed by Dan Reed, “transcends” the late- King Of Pop, and she appears to be objective in her questioning to the young men.
While the documentary has received mixed reviews since airing on Sunday night (Mar. 3), fans of Jackson have been harassing Winfrey online for conducting the interviews with the two men. Per TMZ, through the hashtag #MJInnocent, fans of the musician are rushing to his defense and slamming the journalist and mogul.
“If karma is real after @Oprah is laid to rest, which I hope is many years from now, ppl will come out of the woodwork to lie on, betray and besmirch her name the way it is being done to Michael Jackson,” one fan wrote. “And ppl she once let into her inner circle will lead the way.”

#MJInnocent @Oprah and @HBO made a huge mistake believing Wade Robson and James Safechuck. This one sided documentary is not resonating with the general public AT ALL. These idiots were proven liars time and time again. Shame on you Oprah and HBO!
