MTV is reportedly considering removing Michael Jackson's name from their Video Vanguard Award for this year's Video Music Awards.
According to Page Six, the fallout from HBO's Finding Neverland continues:
"There's a lot of heated discussion at the network about how to handle the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award this year, and it's getting ugly," a source told the outlet. "There's talk about if they should change the name, or get rid of it altogether. [There's also talk] about who would present it and who would accept it. It's a mess."
Since the documentary aired, the Jackson Estate has faced backlash, with many radio stations choosing to boycott Jackson's music.
"MTV [potentially] banning his name is the latest fallout," the source said. "They haven’t decided yet, but they’ve been going back and forth on it. There are a lot of issues."
