It seems HBO is bent on tarnishing the legacy of Michael Jackson however, they are turning a bling eye to Elvis Presley and his history of documented pedophilia and drug abuse.
The dying network, HBO who just recently ended its boxing coverage, is doing anything and everything it can to gain some viewership including, interviewing 2 men who they say were sexually assaulted by the “King of Pop” without the accused here to defend themselves. However, the media seems to glance over the fact that the “King of Rock and Roll” Elvis Presley was a womanizer, drug abuser and pedophile.
Elvis met his wife Priscilla Presley, in Germany when he was 24 years in 1959 but, Priscilla at the time was only 14-years-old. In 1963, at 17 years old, she moved in with Elvis Presley at the famous Graceland mansion. In 1967, they finally wed and their only child, Lisa Marie Presley, was born in 1968.
However, Priscilla was only one of many young girls Elvis had a relationship with. It has been reported that Elvis preferred girls in their early teens and reportedly rejected Natalie Wood because she was too old for him when she was 18 and he was 21.
Elvis would also have girls around 12 to 14 years of age, in his bedroom despite the age of consent in the United States during the 1960’s was between 16 and 18 (depending on the state).
So we have to ask ourselves, why is the media solely going after Michael Jackson? The simple answer is, because he’s black. Famous White seem to be glanced over when it comes to statutory rape and pedophilia while men like Woody Allen who married his adopted daughter, are still relevant in today’s entertainment field.
Another example is Casey Affleck winning an Oscar, despite being accused of sexual assault.
Here’s the thing, if we go after one, we have to go after them all especially if there is an obvious racial bias.
