Michael Jackson's Music Gets Pulled From Radio Stations Worldwide

Jackson's music has been pulled from the BBC Radio 2 playlist in the United Kingdom, and from Canadian radio stations CKOI, Rythme and The Beatin.

Dutch station NH radio said it would stop playing Jackson's music for a few weeks.

Part one of the controversial Michael Jackson documentary, Leaving Neverland, premiered Sunday on HBO, and sent the internet into an uproar with viewers - and celebs - taking to Twitter to voice their reactions to the allegations made in the film.

Media company Cogeco covers 23 smaller stations and won't feature Jackson on their airwaves, either.

Cogeco spokeswoman Christine Dicaire says the action is a response to listener reactions to the documentary. "They are supposed to make you happy, make you sing and dance", NH radio editor Arjan Snijders said in a broadcast on Tuesday. The news was first reported in The Canadian Press.

Leaving Neverland, in which two adult men claim Jackson befriended and abused them as children in the early 1990s, was met with a mixture of horror and disbelief after it was aired on United States cable channel HBO.

The special, titled After Neverland, aired on HBO after the conclusion of the network's presentation of a bombshell four-hour documentary entitled Leaving Neverland.

Pop icon Michael Jackson waves to his supporters as he arrives for his child molestation trial at the Santa Barbara County Superior Court. "This film, however, does those victims a disservice", Jackson's estate explained. "People who spent time with him can go, 'He couldn't possibly be a pedophile.' How do they know?" Feldman told police and later spoke to CNN about the abuse, which he said was also endured by his friend and fellow child star, the late Corey Haim.

Jackson, who passed away in June 2009, had previously been accused in 1993 of sexually abusing another boy, 13-year-old Jordan Chandler.
