Oprah Winfrey aired a powerful interview after ‘Leaving Neverland’ and is ready for the backlash

On Monday night, as soon as HBO finished airing “Leaving Neverland” — the two-part documentary in which two men detailed allegations of childhood sexual abuse by Michael Jackson — the network continued its Jackson coverage. This time, it was anchored by Oprah Winfrey.

Winfrey, in conjunction with her network OWN, hosted the hour-long special “Oprah Winfrey Presents: After Neverland,” in which she interviewed the two men — Wade Robson and James Safechuck — and director Dan Reed.
