Michael Jackson display removed from world's largest children's museum

INDIANAPOLIS — The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, billed as the largest children's museum in the world, has removed its display of Michael Jackson items.

Following HBO's latest documentary on the late pop icon, "Leaving Neverland," which depicts sexual abuse claims from two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, controversy has arose in almost every facet of his remembrance.

According to the vice president of marketing and external communication for the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, Leslie Olsen, the museum felt "it was appropriate."

"The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis believes that at this time it was appropriate for us to remove the Michael Jackson fedora, glove and poster from display."

Following HBO's premiere of the documentary at Sundance in late January, social media and Hollywood alike have debating Jackson's continuing presence in pop culture.
