In a stunning interview this week, far-left, virulently anti-Trump Hollywood actress and #MeToo feminist Barbra Streisand seemingly blasted deceased pop star Michael Jackson’s underage victims for being complicit in his alleged abuse and suggested that she supports pedophilia.
“His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has,” she told The Times in an interview Friday, according to Fox News, seemingly defending the pop star’s alleged habit of molesting little children.
That sounded like a ringing endorsement of pedophilia …

Regarding Jackson’s alleged victims, Streisand blamed their parents for allowing them to sleep at the musician’s “Neverland” ranch but suggested they too had been complicit in their alleged abuse.
“You can say ‘molested’, but those children, as you heard, say they were thrilled to be there. They [are] both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them,” she said.
That again sounded like a ringing endorsement of pedophilia …
According to a report published by Vanity Fair earlier this month, during his 30s Jackson shared his bed with a number of underage boys. Five of those boys have since accused him of sexual abuse.
Here are additional disturbing facts about the singer:
- He settled several of the sexual assault allegations out of court.
- He kept a collection of pornography, including “a study of naked boys,” next to the same bed he used to sleep with children.
- The hallway leading to the bedroom where the alleged abuse occurred “was a serious security zone covered by video and wired for sound so that the steps of anyone approaching would make ding-dong sounds.”
- He was acquitted in 2005 on 10 felony counts, including four counts of child molestation and one of attempted child molestation. Keep in mind that O.J. Simpson was also once acquitted, though almost everybody now believes he did indeed murder Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman.
Dovetailing back to Streisand’s statements, note what she said about the boys being “thrilled” to be around MJ. She was referring to alleged victims Wade Robson and Jimmy Safechuck.
Except the two never said that they were thrilled. They just pointed out that, as naive children, they’d been so excited at the prospect of being in MJ’s presence that it never occurred to them that what was happening — the alleged abuse they suffered — was wrong.
“[T]he feeling was, out of all the kids in the world, here I am and Michael chose me. And he also told me that ‘I’ve never done this to anybody else.’ So that was more to [thinking], ‘Wow, he chooses me, and he loves me,'” Robson recounted earlier this month on CBS.
He added that it wasn’t until the age of 12 (the abuse occurred from the time he was 7 until the time he was 14) that he began to suspect that something wasn’t quite right.
“I remember feeling around 12, starting to be a little more uncomfortable about that,” he said. “And sometimes maybe trying to change the subject or, you know, distract. But then having a fear that if I don’t do this, I’m already feeling like I’m not a favorite of Michael’s anymore.”
“And if I don’t do this, what’s gonna happen? What’s gonna happen to our friendship?”
Listen to the full interview below:
It’s alleged victims such as these whose experiences Streisand has chosen to discount. The hypocrisy is galling given she’s a self-described #MeToo activist who’s repeatedly condemned President Donald Trump and Supreme Court Brett Kavanaugh over spurious, unproven sexual assault allegations.
Yet in the face of near-concrete evidence regarding one of her deceased Hollywood friends, she’s performed a 180 and went from blasting the alleged perpetrators to demeaning the victims.
It’s stunning …
.@realDonaldTrump admits to sexual assault on tape, denies all the women who have come forward, pays off women with whom he has affairs, then blatantly lies, discredits and attempts to silence those who speak out about their stories. @TIMESUPNOW #MeToo #TimesUpTrump

Trump said Kavanaugh and his family were tortured – what about the torture Dr. Ford has felt for all of these years after her attack?

But it’s not just stunning to those already peeved with her over her attacks on Trump and Kavanaugh. Even her left-wing peers in media and Hollywood are awestruck by what she said.

Barbra Streisand, in a bold move, went right past the “deny and slander the victims” phase and straight to the “yeah, he did it, but is pedophilia really that bad” end state.

My initial inclination is to joke in response to Barbra Streisand’s horrific remarks because as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I need to process this in a way that doesn’t fucking kill me. Holy christ, Babs. What the fuck is wrong with you?

It should be noted that Jackson’s family continues to deny the allegations against him. His family has also sued HBO for $100 million over a recently aired documentary, “Leaving Neverland,” that exposed all of the deceased singer’s disturbing habits and behaviors.
“HBO and the director were well aware of their financial motives and that ample opposing facts are available from numerous sources, but made the unconscionable decision to bury any evidence casting doubt on their chosen narrative,” the family’s attorney said in a statement.
“Had they made an objective film it would have allowed viewers to make up their own minds about these allegations, instead of having a television network dictate to them that they must accept these false claims about Michael Jackson.”
