    If people feel Michael is guilty that their right BUT that shouldn't stop others to go to the museum. there's a lot of places I don't like but I also realize that i don't have to go there if i don't have to.

    whatever side anyone on do you. but please don't spread hate.

    I can understand the 'disclaimer' given the background of the man whose idea the museum was, and who was the former CEO.

    I hope they remove the MJ exhibit because of this connnection. (MJ doesn't need this.)

    From Wiki : ' The Hollywood Horror Museum, or Horror World Tour, is a proposed educational museum created in 2015 by Huston Huddleston. As of April 2019, no permanent facility has been found for the museum or its collection.

    In April 2018, once news broke of Huston Huddleston's felony charges of child pornography, the board of directors list was removed from both Foundation museum websites, and individual members have publicly distanced themselves from the project.

    John Purdy, former director of Star Trek World Tour, became the new CEO after the child pornography arrest of former CEO Huston Huddleston.''

    Huston Huddleston Conviction Result

    Earlier this year news broke that Floyd Huston Huddleston, founder and CEO of the New Starship Foundation LLC, was arrested on March 24, 2018. Stemming from incidents reported in 2013, a five-year FBI investigation lead to the arrest on felony charges for three counts relating to: 1) contacting a minor with intent to commit a felony act (§288.3(a)), 2) hiring or employing a minor to perform sexual acts for production of child porn (§311.4(a)), and 3) possessing pornography produced with the use of a person under 18 (§311.11(a)). Huddleston plead “not guilty” to all three charges. He was detained and with a bail set at $750,000.

    Following a jury trial on June 20, 2018, documents released have revealed Huddleston withdrew the “not guilty” plea on the third count and instead plead “nolo contendere” (a “no contest” plea by which a defendant in a criminal prosecution accepts conviction as though a guilty plea had been entered but does not admit guilt). Huddleston was found guilty and convicted on the third count. As a result Huddleston has been placed on a 3-year probation during which he must submit to search and seizure including electronic devices, was ordered to serve 126 days in Los Angeles county jail (although he was credited time already in custody and good behavior), ordered to pay a total of $520 in fines, must complete a 52-week sex offender counseling program, and will be registered as a sex offender.

    Huddleston has been removed from participating in a planned panel at the upcoming San Diego Comic Con 2018 convention, although at this time it appears the New Starship Foundation will continue to have a booth in the exhibitor hall. Whether Huddleston will be present at the booth is presently unknown.

    Huddleston gained prominence in the Star Trek community in 2012 after salvaging the majority of a Paramount-created reproduction of the USS Enterprise-D bridge set which was used for a tour display after the original screen-used set was destroyed while filming Star Trek Generations. His plans to turn the restored bridge into an interactive museum piece snowballed into a larger science fiction museum project named the Hollywood Sci-Fi Museum, and then expanded to include a second museum named the Hollywood Horror Museum. Early volunteers for the New Starship Foundation observed and reported behavior and business practices by Huddleston which were deemed unprofessional and criminally suspect. Many in the community are now left wondering about the future of the New Starship Foundation and the museum projects.

    Huddleston was also a Channel 4 staff writer. You know- the Channel that backed Reed's 'LN' project...

    Wiki: ''Huston Huddleston worked in London at Channel 4 as a writer, creating several TV pilots including The Wacky Dooley Show, The Spinal Tap Reunion Special, Vivien Leigh, and the comedy The Greatest Show Ever directed by Joe Dante and starring Mickey Rooney.[1] Huddleston wrote and directed "Six Chicks and a Dead Guy".[2]

    He co-wrote the second episode of the fan-made web series Star Trek Continues entitled "Lolani".[4]



    I think starting an 'educational museum' is a great way to attract ...kids.

    Funny how the whole “MJ controversy” always seems to revolve around the same group of people. Not ha ha funny. The other one.

    And now watch them move slowly to the separate-art-from-artist crowd to squeeze a few more bucks out of their agenda.

    I guess then they should be called "the controversial Hollywood Horror Museum" now, and horror fans can decide whether they are able to separate the expositions from the institution.

    Seriously though, the former CEO is now replaced and his wrongdoings can't be blamed on the other workers, so I don't think Thriller should be removed because of this. Nevertheless, it was a very instructive experience, revealing more about the inner problems of the museum than anything having to do with MJ - again.

    Oh, I know this feeling too well. I've done it with this topic as well, when - after sending my first post - I read HHM's much more reasonable later reactions to the comments. But I don't know, their initial announcement was still wrong, maybe they just realized that there are more fans than haters, and the change in tone was just a pragmatic step.

    I have further reservations:

    1. ''RENTALS, WEDDINGS AND PREMIERES
    Further revenue will come from private tours, rentals, screenings, live theatre and music events, the gift shop, café and rentals of the sets and rooms for Weddings and Private Parties.''

    i.e The premises and sets can be hired, and I don't want to see 'Thriller' costumes to be misused eg in drunken stag-party videos and

    2. There is a very interesting paragraph on 'copyright' as follows:

    ''COPYRIGHTS
    All displays, props, content and materials in The Hollywood Horror Foundation correspond with the laws of Fair Use as an educational nonprofit museum. Certain props are acquired from the studios, networks or collectors, and others are not sponsored nor endorsed by the following companies: Universal, Lionsgate, New Line, Warner, Sony, MGM, ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, Paramount, Legendary, Darkhorse or Hammer Horror. Apologies for any companies excluded.''


    In other words this whole enterprise is entirely 'unofficial' and could be fantastically tacky.

    3. Also: ''Music and sound effects will accompany each exhibit.''

    I can imagine the Estate landing like a ton of bricks on this. (MJ image and music are all copyright).
    Fair use would require that the exhibit is in some way transformative, as well as educational.

    A recent tw post by the HHM reads:
    ''We were quite shocked there was no MJ museum apparently anywhere in the world. So if things go well, we plan to invite the family to the opening, in addition to the people involved.''

    (I think they mean John Landis and Rick Baker).

    This looks like a bust from 'Godaiking Studios':
