Barbra Streisand trended for all the wrong reasons as she attempted to defend Michael Jackson following the ‘Leaving Neverland’ backlash.

During a recent interview with Times, Streisand said that she did not believe the experiences that Wade Robson and James Safechuck encountered had impacted them permanently and that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has,” she said.

“You can say ‘molested’, but those children, as you heard say [the adult Robson and Safechuck], they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”

Social media went ham on Streisand, and she was later forced to clarify her statements, offering up an apology to those offended.

“To be crystal clear, there is no situation or circumstance where it is OK for the innocence of children to be taken advantage of by anyone,” the statement reads. “The stories these two young men shared were painful to hear, and I feel nothing but sympathy for them. The single most important role of being a parent is to protect their children. It’s clear that the parents of the two young men were also victimized and seduced by fame and fantasy.”

“I am profoundly sorry for any pain or misunderstanding I caused by not choosing my words more carefully about Michael Jackson and his victims, because the words as printed do not reflect my true feelings,” the post reads. “I didn’t mean to dismiss the trauma these boys experienced in any way.”

Before adding:

I feel deep remorse and hope James and Wade know that I truly respect and admire them for speaking their truth.
