T.I. Urges Black People To Pause On Michael Jackson's Allegations -- Is Tiny Harris' Husband Making Some Valid Points?
Activist and rapper T.I. has taken to social media to say it is time to let Michael Jackson rest in peace because he is dead and can no longer defend himself against the boatload of sexual allegations being brought against him in the new documentary, Leaving Neverland .
Tiny Harris' husband said if Michael's past is being dug up to be reexamined, the same should be done for Caucasian legends who have been accused of unthinkable acts.
T.I. brought the names of the late Elvis Presley and Hugh Hefner. The MC also said he is fed up that only black artists like R. Kelly and Michael are being crucified.
T.I.P. said: "Pierce Morgan a real one for this. Let this man speak for himself to defend his legacy. Don’t just listen to one side and expect to find the truth. Oh, that’s right...Dead men can’t speak. So what was the point again? Destroy another strong black historical LEGEND?!?! It’s several examples of pedophilia in American History... if y’all pulling up all our old crap.. we gotta examine ELVIS PRESLEY, HUGH HEPHNER, and a whole slew of others guilty of the same if not more!!! BUT WHY US all the time? There’s an agenda to destroy OUR CULTURE. #KingsThoughts."
Most fans agreed with T.I.'s post.
One person said: "The fact that THIS PARTICULAR accusation has been debunked time and time again with various people and there are still people who won’t let it go is beyond me🤷🏾♀️It’s easy to make a someone who can’t defend them self’s look guilty."
Another follower claimed: "At this point, I strongly agree. They want the black culture to have bad history so bad and no legacy.. just look around. They be using own to destroy us 😏🤢They’ve been bashing a lot of black celebrities lately there definitely trying to distract us from something."
This fan had the following to say: "So a person who loves kids is strange? Lol! Idk him personally but they weren’t looking to protect MJ. They wanted to nail that man to a wall. So if they found anything he would’ve been locked under a jail. We did not talk a few months of investigation. We’re talking ten years of testimony, transcripts, and other evidence. But it’s whatever... people will believe whatever they want because of it on TV."
However, a critic stepped in to call out T.I. by writing: "I know T.I. didn’t just compare men working with children as a career to a man sleeping in a bed with a child."
T.I. makes some valid points.
