Instead of leaving Neverland it looks like the men who claimed to be sexually abused as young children by the late King of Pop will actually be returning.  In a thrilling and inspiring documentary, Wade Robson and James Safechuck claimed they were both sexually violated by Michael Jackson at ages of 7 and 10. After an unsuccessful lawsuit the two boys return to the public eye as men to uncover their own truths in the documentary “Leaving Neverland”. Networks including HBO and UK’s channel 4  plan to air the film in the spring, but the controversy surrounding it airing at this years Sundance film festival has everyone talking. Sundance has remained quiet, not releasing any statements to the public about their decision to air the film. 

One thing beefing up surrounding the drama of the documentary is Sundance’s Security. Yes, it is a part of human nature for fans to be able to protest surrounding the premiere of the film, but we should all be taking a look at the man in the mirror, because one question security will not be  asking is “Annie are you okay?”

According to a source with Deadline Hollywood, Sergeant Brandon Shearer of the SLC Police says, “We are aware of the possibility of protests and our job will be to monitor any protests that may occur and give people the ability to let their voices be heard safely.”

To stir up the beef even more, the SLC Police are coming in guns blazing with a full force bomb squad on duty.

Let’s just hope this festival ends in a sun-dance and not a mitigating circumstance.
