After a huge backlash about her shocking comments (see below) towards victims of molestation, Barbra Streisand apologized in a statement saying she didn’t choose her words carefully.
Her words weren’t “misunderstood” but understood fully by anyone who read them. She’s walking this back because of the #MeToo movement outrage and because anyone outside of Hollywood is horrified by the flippant acceptance of child molestation shrouded in a “they deserved it” kind of attitude. In other words, Streisand forgot she wasn’t with the Holywood crowd when she spoke honestly.
STREISAND’S STATEMENT via The Hollywood Reporter:
“I am profoundly sorry for any pain or misunderstanding I caused by not choosing my words more carefully about Michael Jackson and his victims because the words as printed do not reflect my true feelings. I didn’t mean to dismiss the trauma these boys experienced in any way. Like all survivors of sexual assault, they will have to carry this for the rest of their lives. I feel deep remorse and I hope that James and Wade know that I truly respect and admire them for speaking their truth.”
“To be crystal clear, there is no situation or circumstance where it is OK for the innocence of children to be taken advantage of by anyone. The stories these two young men shared were painful to hear, and I feel nothing but sympathy for them.”
“The single most important role of being a parent is to protect their children. It’s clear that the parents of the two young men were also victimized and seduced by fame and fantasy.”
So much for the #MeToo movement. Hollywood insanity strikes again with the latest comments from legendary singer Barbra Streisand who just condoned Michael Jackson’s molestation of two kids.
TMZ reports that The Times in the UK interviewed Barbra Streisand and got some shocking comments supporting Michael Jackson’s reported pedophilia. She has a very strange way of looking at what Jackson did two children during visits to his Neverland Ranch.
Her thoughts on the two accusers featured in “Leaving Neverland”, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, are causing a backlash on social media for good reason:
Streisand discussed Jackson’s “sexual needs”:
“His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has.”
She says the HBO documentary was difficult to watch and does believe the molestation happened but she dismissed it saying “they were thrilled to be there”:
“You can say molested, but those children, as you heard them say they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”
“I feel bad for the children. I feel bad for him. 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 shows and the dancing and the hats?”
Streisand is being scorched on social media for her outrageous comments regarding the molestation.
