Barbra Streisand gets heat for her comments on Michael Jackson’s alleged child molestation.

The iconic singer/actress was asked about MJ in light of the controversial Leaving Neverland documentary, and her response was shockingly ignorant.

“His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has,” she told The Times

“You can say ‘molested’, but those children, as you heard [the grown-up Robson and Safechuck] say, they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”


Streisand was asked if she had anger towards the late singer. “It’s a combination of feelings. I feel bad for the children. I feel bad for him,” she said.

“I blame, I guess, the parents, who would allow their children to sleep with him? Why would Michael need these little children dressed like him and in the shoes and the dancing and the hats?”

Like the rest of the Internet, the director or Leaving Neverland, Dan Reed, can’t believe she said that.
