Director Of Michael Jackson Documentary Responds

The director of a Michael Jackson documentary is responding to the Jackson family.

The HBO film "Leaving Neverland" follows two men who claim the King of Pop sexually abused them while they were kids, but the Jackson family members say they are "furious" that two men who accuse him of sexually abusing them as boys have received renewed attention because of a new documentary, and the Jacksons are calling the film a public lynching of a man who can no longer defend himself, saying the film has no hard evidence to back up the allegations.

Director Dan Reed says the family is simply trying to protect their money making asset, and claims the film is not so much about Jackson as it is about two accounts of sexual abuse.

"Leaving Neverland" premiered last week at the Sundance Film Festival and is set to be on HBO and the United Kingdom's Channel 4 in the spring.
