Michael Jackson Statue Removed from Britain's National Football Museum Amid Abuse Claims

The documentary, which premiered on the network on Sunday night, has evoked a wave of public anger across the world, with several radio stations in New Zealand and Canada dropping the King of Pop's music from their playlists.

Michael Jackson's musical legacy has been undergoing a critical reappraisal after a new documentary rekindled allegations of child sexual abuse.

Jackson's music has nearly completely disappeared from New Zealand's airwaves as their two top radio networks, NZME and MediaWorks, pulled his songs off the air.

A spokesperson for broadcasting company Cogeco announced Monday that three major Montreal radio stations-The Beat, CKOI and Rythme-would no longer play Jackson's music. A Hollywood DJ says she will now refuse to play any of his music and is urging other people to do the same.

The claims in the documentary have been rejected by the Jackson family.

Whilst Chandler received a reported $23 million (£17.5 million) in a settlement, Arvizo's allegations led to Jackson being put on trial in 2005.

The second part of the Channel 4 programme will air tonight.

"And decisions on what we play on different networks are always made with relevant audiences and context in mind".

The estate said the documentary is "the kind of tabloid character assassination Michael Jackson endured in life, and now in death", and added that "the film takes uncorroborated allegations that supposedly happened 20 years ago and treats them as fact".
