The move is thought to have come as a result of the controversial Leaving Neverland documentary, which aired in the US and United Kingdom last week, which features James Safechuck and Wade Robson making a string of allegations of sexual misconduct and abuse against the Thriller singer, which reportedly took place when they were young boys.

Drake hasn't officially addressed removing the song for his setlist and it's unknown as to whether he'll choose to add it back in later in the tour, but the cut coincidentally comes just days after the Michael Jackson documentary "Leaving Neverland" aired in the UK.

Brooks, creator Matt Groening, and producer Al Jean have agreed to archive the show's Season 3 premiere episode, "Stark Raving Dad", after watching HBO's explosive documentary Leaving Neverland.

The documentary has divided the public with the Facebook fan page "Michael Jackson Fans in New Zealand - 2015" urging fans to boycott the screening in an attempt to "put a glitch" in the documentary's ratings. He continued, "This was a treasured episode". Jackson went credited under the pseudonym John Jay Smith when the episode originally aired.

In light of the controversial "Leaving Neverland" documentary, "The Simpsons" is yanking one of its classic episodes featuring Michael Jackson.

Still, she doesn't know yet if she'll be dumping her Michael Jackson CDs and memories of the late star.

Jackson, who died in 2009, was accused in 1993 of sexually molesting a boy and charged with seven counts of child molestation for allegations related to another boy in 2003.

The late superstar's estate has smeared the documentary as a "posthumous character assassination", and is suing HBO for $100 million.

The episode will be removed from streaming services and future DVD sets. "But this is our book, and we're allowed to take out a chapter", Brooks said.
