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.

Diana’s defense of the ‘Billie Jean’ hitmaker comes after Barbra Streisand recently received a huge backlash for suggesting the parents of James and Wade were partly to blame for their allegations, and insisted if they were abused, it didn’t “kill” the two men.
According to Daily Mail, Barbra said:

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?”

Michael Jackson ‘abused us hundreds of times’, say two men

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.

The recently released ‘Leaving Neverland’ documentary is about how Robson and Safechuck, now in their 30’s, say Jackson, who died at age 50 in 2009, sexually abused them from the ages of seven and 10.
