Simpsons writer believes Michael Jackson used his cameo episode to groom boys

During an interview with the Daily Beast, Jean shared that he believed Jackson used an episode from the popular cartoon to "groom boys". "And that makes me very, very sad", Jean concluded.

"Stark Raving Dad" was Jean's first episode as showrunner, a significant milestone in his career.

Jackson voiced a character named Leon Kompowsky, a mental institution patient who claimed to be the real Michael Jackson.

Michael Jackson's children are reportedly considering taking legal action against alleged sexual abuse victims Wade Robson and James Safechuck in the wake of the shocking documentary Leaving Neverland.

"The episode itself has a false objective, and that's what I object to about it now", Reiss said.

The Wall Street Journal reported that James L. Brooks, executive producer of The Simpsons, had made the decision to pull the 1991 episode from television and streaming services, explaining that it was "the only choice to make".


Vuitton said it would not produce any item "that directly features Michael Jackson elements" and assured that the collection that will ultimately reach stores, which had multiple inspirations, would "purely reflect the true values of the brand and of our artistic director". The episode was written by Jean himself.

Al Jean said that the financial costs of cutting Jackson out of the show completely are worth it given the severity of the allegations brought against him. "I don't believe in going through and making judgments on every guest star and saying 'this one was bad, that one was bad, ' but the episode itself has a false goal, and that's what I object to about it now".

She continued, "I'm just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture".

"I don't believe in going through and making judgments on every guest star and saying "this one was bad, that one was bad", but the episode itself has a false objective, and that's what I object to about it now", Jean explained to the Daily Beast.
