LOOSE Women viewers were less than impressed with the attitude Gloria Hunniford had today following the airing of Leaving Neverland.
Leaving Neverland has been the topic on everyone’s minds after the Michael Jackson documentary aired part one last night.
Many fans are torn over the allegations that have been surrounding MJ since the show aired, and it was the talking point on Loose Women today.
The ladies on the show debate controversial topics on a daily basis, but this one has lead to viewers begging to kick off one of the panelists.
As the ladies started discussing the parents of the children in the documentary, Gloria’s view was controversial to say the least.
“Why would a grown man want to talk about being sexually abused?”
While they were all sharing their thoughts on whether they believe the allegations or not, Gloria questioned whether she thought they were true.
Halfway through the discussion, she asked: “Why would a grown man want to talk about being sexually abused?”
She also questioned the behaviour of the parents, although Nadia Sawalha backed them, arguing they were also manipulated.
Continuing to give fans a reason to share their anger, Gloria asked: “Why come forward 10 years later? Why not two years later? Why now?”
Taking to Twitter to express their views, fans couldn’t help but slam Gloria over her comments on sexual abuse.
One user wrote: “Gloria f***ing Hunniford: ‘Why would a grown man want to talk about being sexually abused?’ PLEASE axe this woman.”
While another added: “Gloria needs to shut the f**k up.
“When anyone questions why not then, why years later, that shows you have never been sexually abused.”
A third fan said: “FFS Gloria. If I had been abused by someone, regardless of who they were, I’d be shouting it from the rooftops until the day I died so I could get justice.”
The other panelists seemed torn over their thoughts on the documentary, but after Gloria’s influx of questions, fans weren’t happy with the way she expressed herself.
Although nothing has been confirmed regarding the alleged abuse received by victims of MJ, Leaving Neverland viewers are torn over what to believe.
Loose Women airs weekdays at 12:30pm on ITV.
