And that is a fact, been talked about in the MJ documentaries, the first accusation hurt his pride more than anything, the second one hurt his career.
Regardless, he got accused twice of the same thing. Supposedly, he settled the first accusation out of court at the encouragement of his label so many viewed that as a sign of guilt. Do you not realize the hatred he received for that, allegedly bleaching his skin, questioning is sexual orientation or even the time when he hung his baby off the balcony? He did some off the wall shit over the years but people seem to forget that most of his success in music came outside of the US. He was treated like a God overseas but like a weirdo and criminal over here, at least by the L.A. district attorney.
