He told the publication, “I knew I had to be someone out in front fighting for my uncle. I’m not combating Leaving Neverland. I’m doing a documentary about the media’s relationship with my uncle and how they’ve reported certain things as factual that were lies. I’m going to go back all the way to 1993 with the first allegation and uncover that along with the 2005 allegations.” He added that the documentary is going to “debunk” allegations made against his uncle. He also said, “I don’t want someone watching Leaving Neverland a hundred years from now and thinking it’s true. I want there to be a counter argument that debunks everything.” So far, Taj has raised just over $110,000.
