Sheryl Underwood and Eve Discuss New Michael Jackson Allegations Compared to R. Kelly
The hosts discuss Michael Jackson's legacy after the debut of "Leaving Neverland," featuring compelling accusations from two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who say The King of Pop sexually assaulted them when they were boys. "It's a lot to say it's not going to affect his legacy," says Sheryl Underwood. "Look at the R. Kelly situation. I didn't grow up listening to R. Kelly, so it might be easier to say 'mute R. Kelly' - but if these allegations come out to be founded, will we be muting Michael Jackson?" "It's hard because he [Jackson] was almost a non-human at his level of fame. He transcended culture and color," expresses Eve. "I don't think it will hurt his legacy because I think he has so many millions of fans that even if these allegations do turn out to be true, they don't want to see it."
