SHOCKING: Barbra Streisand Explains to British Reporter That Michael Jackson’s Sexual Abuse Victims were, in fact, ‘thrilled to be there’
In a shocking interview given to the Times of Britain, singer Barbra Streisand amazingly and to the horror of just about everyone, said that two of the late Michael Jackson’s sexually abused and serial assaulted underage victims were, “thrilled to be there.”
While the medical, psychological and sexual abuse fields of study and recovery are universally decrying her comments, many are left wondering what kind of mindset could Streisand be under to somehow lay any blame on child victims of adult pedophiles and serial sexual predators?
Streisand added that she feels sorry for both the alleged victims and Jackson alike, but took it much further in her assessment of Jackson’s motivation: “His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has,” Streisand told The Times.
Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late singer and accused pedophile and child rapist resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland” — are the two, now grown men in question to whom Streisand alluded to in her strange and outrageous comments. Michael Jackson is accused of serially sexually assaulting them as children, as well as attempted rape. Streisand continues digging herself deeper:
“You can say ‘molested,’ but those children, as you heard say [grown-up Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there and that what allegedly happened to them didn’t kill them.”
Didn’t kill them? Believe it – she will be walking these statements back and saying they were ‘taken out of context’ very soon. These are the words of a psychotic. She says she “absolutely” believes the allegations of abuse by Robson and Safechuck, but puts more blame on their parents than the actual abuser, Michael Jackson…
… let that sink in. The parents are responsible because they should have known Michael Jackson would rape their kids. That might be true to a degree – but they are not more responsible than the monster and the kids are not responsible one iota, Babs.
Shame on you @BarbraStreisand for disrespecting the victims of child rape. Low class, dismissive and a shocking trivialisation. To speak up for a child abuser… I expect it from the deranged MJ fans but not from you, who should know better. #LeavingNeverland #victimshamers https://t.co/e2yns2h77f

Understandably, Dan Reed, the director of “Leaving Neverland,” was shocked at Streisand’s comments. “’It didn’t kill them”
@BarbraStreisand did you really say that?!,’” Reed tweeted.

Others were equally outraged.
“As a lifelong fan, I am deeply disappointed about your remarks regarding Michael Jackson,” a Twitter user going by Lisa Bee wrote. “I don’t understand how you could be so dismissive of the abuse that he inflicted and the damage that’s been done. It’s so unsympathetic to ALL victims of sexual abuse.”
Another, identified by Twitter as Jen, wrote, “What you said about Michael Jackson’s victims is seriously disgusting. Victims are not thrilled to be molested.”
