She doesn’t say whether or not she believes Robson and Safechuck — each of whom have beforehand testified MJ by no means molested them.
The interview alone has nonetheless been sufficient to set off this sort of Internet hate.
One consumer posted, “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. And ppl she once let into her inner circle will lead the way.”
