Last month, the media mogul hosted the After Neverland HBO special, in which she sat down with Wade Robson and James Safechuck, the two men whose sexual assault allegations against Michael Jackson were publicized in Dan Reed's documentary, Leaving Neverland.
While doing promotion for her latest book, The Path Made Clear, Oprah Winfrey stopped by The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to discuss the backlash she received for her interview with Michael Jackson's accusers. The entertainment website caught up with Carter and asked if he thought "Leaving Neverland" should be removed from HBO.More news: Star Wars Vader Immortal VR Series Trailer Reveals Story, Gameplay
"To be honest, after seeing everyone's story unfold, I was a little aggressive", Carter said, seemingly pointing to a March conversation with TMZ in which he slammed the Leaving Neverland subjects.
"You're just gonna have to find out", Carter replied while plugging an autobiography that he's now writing, adding that "he'll always have [MJ's] back, however, he will tell his truth". I mean, everyone has their own stories and everyone has their own situations so I can't really take away from that.More news: Is Fortnite’s New Respawn System Meant to Compete Against Apex Legends?
However, "In regards to that situation, I actually have my own experience that happened with Michael, so I'm going to be talking about that in the future". "I don't know. I can't be like, 'Oh, I was there, I was a fly on the wall, I know, ' 'cause I don't". He recalled spending time with Jackson when he was 15, and said that Jackson encouraged him in his career. He then added, "I'll always have his back, though". "You're just gonna have to find out when I talk about it", the singer explained. "You are up his a**".
Winfrey continued, "When you're in the midst of trauma, bad things happening to you, you may not remember the exact time".More news: Tiger Woods wins Masters to complete comeback for the ages
