British journalist and author Mike Smallcombe is disputing several claims made in the documentary "Leaving Neverland." You can check out the full list of inaccuracies (according to Mike) here, but the gist is the timeline given by Wade Robson, his mother and James Safechuck doesn't add up with previous timelines given under oath or with when actual structures the alleged abuse took place in were actually built. The director of the film was quick to respond with the tweet below
I have not yet watched the documentary, and am still on the fence as to whether or not I will, but I've said it before and I'll say it again, to me this isn't a fair fight. I understand supporting and raising up victims of sexual assault, but this man is no longer alive to defend himself against said claims. Furthermore, these are claims that have been made numerous times, and been dismissed numerous times. While I'm happy we now live in a time where more and more people are encouraged to step forward with their stories and more and more people are encouraged to believe said victims, it's also important to remember that we can't deal in absolutes. People always have and always will take advantage when and where they can, and that needs to be taken into account as well. What do you think though? Do the points made by Smallcombe make you feel differently about the situation?
