There have been calls by some quarters to mute the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson in light of the controversy surrounding him following the release of “Leaving Neverland”, a documentary that accuses him of pedophilia.
However, Madame Tussauds won’t be muting the iconic singer according to a report by the celebrity gossip site, TMZ.
In its report, TMZ states that Michael Jackson’s wax figures at Madame Tussauds locations around the globe are not getting the #MuteMichaelJackson treatment despite renewed public outrage due to “Leaving Neverland.”
A spokesperson for Madame Tussauds told TMZ,
“The figures on display at Madame Tussauds reflect profiles that have had an impact on popular culture and that visitors expect to see. Michael Jackson has been and is currently a feature of Madame Tussauds attractions around the world.”
The spokesperson added,
“We regularly monitor our choice of figures on display based on external events and visitor feedback. It will be kept on display for the foreseeable future.”
It would be recalled that Drake and “The Simpsons” have already dropped any relationship with Jackson as Drake dropped songs from the “Thriller” hitmaker on his set list while “The Simpsons” removed an episode a character of his starred.
