Michael Jackson: 10 Years After His Death, a Murky Legacy

by at .

It has been a decade since Michael Jackson passed away.

That means ten years for fans to mourn, but also ten years for some fans to reconsider their feelings about the late King of Pop.

Earlier this year, the Leaving Neverland documentary aired.

The accusations and revelations made by MJ's former defenders shook Jackson fans and family to their cores.

Chilling descriptions of a sexual predator were hard for some to reconcile with the cheerful innocense that Jackson displayed in life.

Now, ten years after the world mourned his death, so many wonder how they should feel about the music, the memory, and the man himself.
