Louis Vuitton says they are removing its Michael Jackson-themed clothing from its new collection after the backlash of the HBO documentary, Leaving Neverland.
The collection debuted at a fashion show in January and featured 65 pieces that had elements of Jackson, including a T-shirt with his infamous dance shoes on the front. The collection had other inspirations besides Jackson, those pieces will still be released to retail stores.
A spokesman for Louis Vuitton said the allegations in the documentary were “disturbing and troubling” and the company was unaware of the documentary prior to the fashion show.
