I agree that the Estate’s RESPONSE to LN was the CORRECT way to respond. I don’t know why FANS want to lie and say the Estate did nothing or didn’t respond. They DID respond. I’m sick of the lies. They did NOT ignore the fakeumentary.Officially, they did nothing. Which, in my opinion, is the wise move. I understand fans feel that a retort was necessary, but not only would such a project be immediately dismissed because it was put together by the estate (which is precisely why I have little hope for Taj’s series), but it would also amplify LN further. The best response was to say nothing and allow the doc’s faults and inconsistencies to speak for themselves, which they did.
Unofficially, there were rumors that the Lies of Leaving Neverland mini-doc, which had unreleased courtroom footage of the Robsons and appeared online randomly, was put together by the estate. Branca apparently all but confirmed it to a fan at some sort of MJ event a year or so back.
I think the estate’s response to LN—taking HBO to court and utterly obliterating them left and right while simultaneously letting the public discover that the doc was full of shit—is the single best thing they’ve done in any respect.
