After the releasing of the HBO documentary “Finding Neverland,” more people are starting to acknowledge claims of sexual and child abuse by Michael Jackson. As a result of these new allegations more brands are pulling their support of the late pop star, and Louis Vuitton is one of them.

The Men’s Artistic Director of Louis Vuitton, Virgil Abloh says, “I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights… My intention for this show was to refer to Michael Jackson as a pop culture artist.”

Louis Vuitton maintains that these pieces will no make shelves and will not anytime soon. The collection features pieces referring to Jackson’s signature style including the loose-fitting button down shirts, classic military-style jackets, layered formal pieces, fedora wide-brimmed hats, and the iconic silver sequin gloves.
