Wow. She is dead to me now. Do f@ck off Babs!

TheQueef Sat 23-Mar-19 08:53:55

What's she done?

Smelborp Sat 23-Mar-19 08:54:17

Can you summarise?

What the actual fuck angryangry

AnyFucker Sat 23-Mar-19 08:54:41

Oh dear

SrSteveOskowski Sat 23-Mar-19 08:55:00

I never liked her and now I know why.
She's a fucking disgrace for saying that angry

RuggyPeg Sat 23-Mar-19 08:58:22

She's said that MJ got his needs met and that the boys came to no real or lasting harm, so it's no big deal really.

Stressedout10 Sat 23-Mar-19 08:59:13

Wow that's the worst type of victim blaming I've seen in a long time 🤬

Silly cow.

If you kept taking your son back to someone dodge, what does that make you.
Even if the person is famous, would you put your child in danger?
Would you let your child sleep in a bed with a grown up man... They did.
Would you accept money from this man and gifts . They did.
I think they were to blame.

Yet, she gets really shirty when people pronounce her surname incorrectly. Lovely woman hmm

On the plus side, she apparently knew him well and believed the allegations, so might have convinced a few more of his deluded fans.

LateEaster Sat 23-Mar-19 09:02:12

I saw that too op.
I really liked her work but not massive fan but that leaves me very disappointed.

Utterly stupid and ridiculous comments.

mummmy2017 Sat 23-Mar-19 09:02:44

Oh totally agree MJ was what we all think.
But the parents did not protect their child.

SauvingnonBlanketyBlanc Sat 23-Mar-19 09:03:54

The parents should have been more cautious but the rest of what shes said is despicable

SouthernComforts Sat 23-Mar-19 09:04:58

Her vile comments about the children aside for a sec, that's a pretty big celebrity quite openly saying she believes he molested them, isn't it? Have many other celebs said the same??

PregnantSea Sat 23-Mar-19 09:10:03

This is so outrageous that I wonder if she's just saying it for some publicity

ShabbyAbby Sat 23-Mar-19 09:10:12

TheQueef Sat 23-Mar-19 09:11:33

And needs? No one has a need to abuse. angry

NottonightJosepheen Sat 23-Mar-19 09:11:44

Upon first reading that article, I was shocked. But, having thought about it, I think her comments reflect an insidious victim-blaming, rape-apologising culture.

I mean, she actually said of the child (now adult) victims, 'They didn't die, did they?'.

WTF? You hear people minimising, refuting, disbelieving and blaming victims of sexual abuse all the time. We need to confront this mentality on a societal level.

I am disgusted by her comments. And I can only imagine how devastating they were to his victims and others.

That is a very good point.

Funkaccino Sat 23-Mar-19 09:17:59

Twitter quote.

"Ive changed my mind about the cancel culture just so i cancel Barbara Streisand the pedo apologist"

Now what she said was horrible I agree. But I am confused as to why this person was against cancel culture when it was cancelling the men who actually molested children. But for it against a woman who merely said something revolting?

StillCoughingandLaughing Sat 23-Mar-19 09:18:40

I’m a huge fan and am very disappointed.

MissionItsPossible Sat 23-Mar-19 09:21:21

That’s just shocking tbh

Betaboo Sat 23-Mar-19 09:22:26

I would be interested to read the original interview, rather than the DM extracts. I really hope she has been misquoted, because nothing else could justify those comments.

There is no excusing MJ actions, nor the actions of the parents of those boys.
