D.L. Hughley’s takeaway from the Michael Jackson documentary is that “WE” as a society need to take a hard look at what we let incredibly talented celebrities get away with … often in plain sight.
TMZ caught up with the comedian outside Guastavino’s in NYC Monday night, and instead of questioning how Leaving Neverland affects Jackson’s legacy — he went off on people who allowed him to do what’s alleged in the doc.
D.L. says no matter what side you’re on, MJ’s behavior with young boys was disturbing and wouldn’t have been tolerated if he was a regular person … with no talent or wealth.
If this sounds familiar … it’s because D.L. hasn’t hesitated in the past to put MJ in the same box as R. Kelly.
As for Oprah, who has caught a lot of flak from Jackson’s fans for interviewing his accusers, Hughley says her background more than qualifies her to do what she’s doing … and the haters weighing in don’t know what they’re talking about.
