Following the release of the 'Leaving Neverland' documentary on HBO over the weekend, T.I. has been going hard for Michael Jackson to defend the dead star's legacy.

The rapper shared a portion of an unreleased interview between Jackson and Piers Morgan where he explains why he spends so much time with children. Jackson explained that children were his inspiration and without them, he would slit his wrists. 

He also speaks about how the media twists innocent hospital trips to sick children into something perverse.

He also shared a screenshot of a tweet from Morgan, calling the current controversy an "assault on our culture."

T.I. is not here for HBO's new documentary, but the surprisingly vocal rapper has remained tight-lipped about the recent allegations against R. Kelly which centers around the abuse and exploitation of young, Black girls.
