Louis Vuitton won’t release Virgil Abloh’s Michael Jackson-referencing collection

Postado Março 16, 2019

The controversy surrounding Michael Jackson and the "Leaving Neverland" documentary keeps getting bigger, and now Louis Vuitton has joined the list of brands that are backing off of Michael Jackson after child sexual abuse allegations that surfaced in the documentary.

Family says it's due in large to the fallout from the documentary "Leaving Neverland". "I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights", he told WWD.

"My intention for this show was to refer to Michael Jackson as a pop culture artist".

As part of the Louis Vuitton summer menswear collection designed by Off-White founder Virgil Abloh, there were supposed to be some pieces that were inspired by Michael Jackson.

The documentary has caused a backlash against Jackson's legacy, as some radio stations stopped playing his music and an episode of "The Simpsons" cartoon show featuring his voice is being pulled from future broadcasts. The site's sources said the suicide attempt was a "direct response" to the allegations made in the controversial HBO documentary that aired last month.
