Author, actress and activist Rose McGowan has said that she believes the subjects of a new documentary, Leaving Neverland, who say Michael Jackson abused them when they were children.
In an interview with Nihal Arthanayake on 5 Live Headliners, she addressed fans of the singer, saying: “I’m sorry that your hero was a bad man.”
Jackson’s family say there’s “not one piece of evidence” to prove the claims.
Ms McGowan became one of the most prominent figures of the #MeToo movement.
She is one of several women to accuse Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein of rape. He denies all allegations of non-consensual sex.
