Twitter Blasts Barbra Streisand For Her 'Sickening' Comments About Michael Jackson's 'Leaving Neverland' Accusers

Even Zach Braff got in on the social media commentary, saying Streisand just “hold my beer’d” the Mueller Report.

Twitter is railing on Barbra Streisand for her controversial comments about Michael Jackson’s "Leaving Neverland" accusers.

In an interview with The Times published Friday, the Grammy winner said she believes the sexual allegations made by Wade Robson and James Safechuck, but also said the alleged abuse "didn’t kill them" and they seemed "thrilled" to be with Jackson at the time.

"Oh, absolutely. That was too painful," Streisand said when asked if she believed the allegations. "He was very sweet, very childlike…His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has."

"You can say ‘molested’, but those children, as you heard say, they were thrilled to be there," she added. "They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them."

"I feel bad for the children," Streisand concluded. "I feel bad for him. I blame, I guess, the parents, who would allow their children to sleep with him."

People didn’t take Streisand’s comments lightly and started bashing the singer on social media, calling her remarks "sickening." In Twitter lingo, many people decided that Streisand has officially been "canceled."

"I am sick to my stomach," journalist Yashar Ali tweeted. "Barbra Streisand’s comments on Michael Jackson’s accusers are … outrageous and perplexing to say the very least," another person added.

"Shame on you @BarbraStreisand for disrespecting the victims of child rape. Low class, dismissive and a shocking trivialisation," another critic tweeted. "To speak up for a child abuser… I expect it from the deranged MJ fans but not from you, who should know better."

Many pointed out how the article dropped just as it was also announced on Friday that Robert Muller had completed the Russia investigation.

"Barbara Streisand just ‘hold my beer’d’ the whole Mueller Report," actor Zach Braff tweeted. "All I’m going to say is the smart political move here for Trump is to ignore the Mueller report and tweet dunk on Barbara Streisand," another person tweeted.
