Transport for London to remove advert protesting Micheal Jackson’s innocence

The advert to be removed as said by a spokesman of TfL had earlier been said to be in "compliant" with its advertising policy.

The adverts proclaiming Micheal Jackson as innocent has been promised to be removed by the authority of Transport for London, TfL.

This promise came as a result of the wake of child sexual abuse allegation against the popular singer, Micheal Jackson.

The adverts are sighted on a double-decker buses across the capital after a 20,000 Euro crowdfunding capital backed by the pop star’s supporters.

According to the report of Sky news, “they were produced in response to the Leaving Neverland documentary, which featured claims by two men who say they were sexually abused by Jackson as children”

The Survivors Trust, which supports victims of rape and child sexual abuse, told Sky News the adverts were “really inappropriate” and called for Transport for London (TfL) to take them down.

TfL initially rejected the criticism, saying the adverts were “compliant” with its advertising policy.

A TfL spokesman said on Wednesday “We have reviewed our position and will be removing these advertisements…They have been rejected due to the public sensitivity and concern around their content.”

The adverts feature Jackson’s face with the word “innocent” over his mouth, along with the slogan: “Facts don’t lie. People do.”
