Jackson starred in episode Stark Raving Dad, which aired on September 19, 1991, voicing the character of Leon, a mental institution patient who claimed to be the real Michael Jackson.

When asked to elaborate on what this false objective is, Jean said: "I think it was part of what he used to groom boys".

Michael Jackson used his guest role on The Simpsons to groom boys, showrunner Al Jean (left) has said, following the announcement that the popular episode would no longer be featured in repeats.

Following the premiere of HBO's Leaving Neverland documentary, which leaves little doubt that the King of Pop was a "sexual predator", Michael Jackson's music sales and streaming numbers dropped, his songs have been banned from the radio, and The Simpsons' creators removed the classic season three episode "Stark Raving Dad" from rotation.

"I really don't know, and I should be very careful because this is not something I know personally, but as far as what I think, that's what I think", he continued.

For its part, in the 78th place of the world ranking, Montevideo ranked as the Latin American city with the best quality of life . Dubai (74th) continues to rank highest for quality of living across the Middle East, closely followed by Abu Dhabi (78th).

Reiss said he wouldn't necessarily go through every past episode and remove episodes whose guest stars or other characters were deemed problematic in hindsight, but he had no regrets about canceling the Jackson episode. It's why I think removing it is appropriate.

"Me and my [boyfriend] re-enacted "the californians" from SNL while we were in nola purely for the entertainment of our friends, and paps happened to be taking pictures of it all and.... y'all it looks like a full on break-up scene in a sad drama movie [oh my God]", she wrote, addressing recent photographs that surfaced showing her and her boyfriend appearing to be in a fight while in the streets of New Orleans.

The episode was pulled amid worldwide action against the pop star's legacy.

Al Jean said that the financial costs of cutting Jackson out of the show completely are worth it given the severity of the allegations brought against him.

'The guys I work with - where we spend our lives arguing over jokes - were of one mind on this. Nobody's flawless, and other guest stars have been far from ideal, but this is the only episode where there was a point to the episode that was other than just having the guest star do a comic performance on the guest star's part, which I didn't realize at the time. "Homer Simpson" was withdrawn from syndication for several years after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, because the storyline involved Homer's auto stuck between the World Trade Centre Twin Towers.
