Michael Jackson's Music Dropped From Radio Stations Following Finding Neverland Premiere

Jackson's family claims both men are making false claims for money and Jackson's estate is suing HBO for airing the film.

Among the biggest, a Care2 petition demanding Mandalay Bay to cancel its Michael Jackson Cirque du Soleil show.

"Michael Jackson isn't now on any MediaWorks Radio stations' playlists", Leon Wratt, the company's director for radio, said in a statement.

Meantime three major Montreal radio stations are taking a stand as a result of the child molestation allegations made against the singer.

According to CNN, multiple radio stations in New Zealand will no longer be playing Jackson's music.

NZME group director of entertainment, Dean Buchanan, confirmed Jackson's material was off the air, though he shied away from talk of a ban.

The Australian Radio Network, which owns 96FM, said it also would not be removing Jackson's music from their playlists "at this stage", but would "as always. continue to regularly review our playlists based on what audiences want to hear".

Leaving Neverland aired on the cable network HBO last Sunday and will be broadcast in Australia on Friday.

In the film, Wade Robson and James Safechuck share detailed and often graphic accounts of years of abuse by the singer.

There had been persistent rumours throughout Jackson's life, but no allegations were ever substantiated. He's sold more 1 billion albums worldwide.

The report says the Canadian radio stations listen to comments and reactions from their audience and reacted accordingly. Other stations in Canada are reported to be monitoring the situation.

In Britain, where Leaving Neverland was set for release Wednesday and Thursday, reports said the BBC had also shelved his music.
