Michael Jackson songs have been pulled from primary school teaching materials in the wake of child abuse allegations.
A company that supplies music lesson resources to around half the primary schools in England removed all mentions of the late pop star from its teaching material.
Charanga took the decision earlier this year, following the release of the Netflix documentary Leaving Neverland, which detailed claims from Wade Robson and James Safechuck that they were abused by him as young boys.
Mark Burke, director of Charanga, said: “In light of the allegations made against Michael Jackson in March, we felt it inappropriate to promote or share his content with our users.
The music stands or falls as music. The sexual behaviour as sexual behaviour. One does not infect the other, either way around.
Still, be interesting to see the BBC subtitles of a show arguing this point. They’re still using Gill Sans aren’t they?
