Actress and Singer Barbra Streisand is in some very hot water with both fans and critics after supporting the late Michael Jackson following her belief that he did in fact Molest several children.
According to NY Daily News, The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland” — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them.”
Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”
She says she “absolutely” believes the allegations of abuse by Robson and Safechuck, but puts more blame on their parents than The Gloved One.
“His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has,” Streisand told The Times. “You can say ‘molested,’ but those children, as you heard say [grown-up Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”
Streisand, who crossed paths with Jackson during their careers, added that she feels sorry for both the alleged victims and Jackson.
“I feel bad for the children,” she said. “I feel bad for him. I blame, I guess, the parents, who would allow their children to sleep with him. Why would Michael need these little children dressed like him and in the shoes and the dancing and the hats?”
The director of “Leaving Neverland“ Dan Reed responded to Streisand tweeting: ‘It didn’t kill them’ @BarbraStreisand did you really say that?!,’”

Many other’s also commented on Streisand’s perverse comments.
Did you really say that the 2 young men who were abused by Michael Jackson are ok because "they were thrilled to be there and it didn't kill them? And they are "ok because they are married with kids"?Are you getting senile? Pedophilia is never ok. I was a big fan…no more.
