"And that makes me very, very sad".

The episode - entitled Stark Raving Dad - was specially penned for the pop star and ended with his character and Bart Simpson writing a song for Lisa's birthday.

"We find the allegations in the documentary deeply troubling and disturbing", Michael Burke, Louis Vuitton's chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement to WWD.

Last week, the Michael Jackson blacklisting hit television, with longstanding tv show The Simpsons pulling their Michael Jackson episode "Stark Raving Dad" from circulation.

In Leaving Neverland, which was broadcast in the United Kingdom last week, two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck claim they were molested by the singer when they were children.

"What saddens me is", Reiss told the website, "if you watch that documentary - which I did, and several of us here did - and you watch that episode, honestly, it looks like the episode was used by Michael Jackson for something other than what we'd intended it".

When The Daily Beast asked about Michael Jackson's role in penning the song, "Happy Birthday Lisa", Al Jean did not elaborate further, noting that the episode viewed from the perspective of the documentary feels odd. And I strongly believe that.

"There are a lot of great memories we have wrapped up in that one, and this certainly doesn't allow them to remain", James L. Brooks told the Wall Street Journal referring to the documentary.

A 1991 episode of The Simpsons that Jackson guest starred in was withdrawn from streaming services and TV channels by the show's producers, who said it was "the only choice to make". I'm just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. that's me.

Al Jean, writer for The Simpsons, believes Jackson used his episode as a tool to groom boys.

"The posters have been pulled after a victims" charity said it was anxious the adverts would discourage people from reporting sexual abuse.

"I am aware that in light of this documentary the show has caused emotional reactions", Louis Vuitton's men's artistic director Virgil Abloh said in an exclusive statement shared with WWD.
