Apparently Barbra Streisand doesn't "believe all victims".
On Friday Barbra Streisand got some unwanted PR after she publicly attacked the two men accusing Michael Jackson of sexually assaulting them as children saying, they “were thrilled to be there” and that what Michael Jackson allegedly did to them “didn’t kill them."
She also defended Michael Jackson's behavior saying she blames the parents, not MJ, because Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”
Streisand told The Times, “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 [Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”
Wade Robson and James Safechuck were only 7-yrs-old when Michael Jackson allegedly raped and abused them. Streisand was a close friend to Michael Jackson when this was all supposedly taking place.
Naturally people were pretty upset after Streisand made these comments and she quickly tried to backtrack by issuing an analogy.
Streisand said in a statement, “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.”
Streisand spend the rest of the weekend complaining about Donald Trump and gun control, a sad attempt at a deflection from her pedophilia comments.
You can apologize all you want, Babs, but the Internet will never forget what you said. The Internet is forever.
