American songstress Diana Ross has come out to support Michael Jackson following the fallout from the Leaving Neverland documentary.
Diana Ross took to Twitter on Saturday to defend her longtime friend Michael Jackson following fierce backlash surrounding the Leaving Neverland documentary, calling him a “magnificent force”.
Referencing her own Supreme hit single, she posted the tweet below.
It’s a combination of feelings. I feel bad for the children. I feel bad for him. I blame, I guess, the parents, who would allow their children to sleep with him. Why would Michael need these little children dressed like him and in the shoes and the dancing and the hats?”
She maintained saying:
To be crystal clear, there is no situation or circumstance where it is OK for the innocence of children to be taken advantage of by anyone.
But the ‘Funny Girl’ star has since “profoundly apologized” for her remarks. She tweeted stating she was ‘sorry for any pain or misunderstanding’ she may have caused.
