They should rename it. It's more obvious than ever that the allegations against Jackson are true.

Also everyone should take notes from what Quebec did after allegations that Claude Jutra (one of our most successful filmmakers) was revealed to have been a pedophile:

On February 17, 2016 La Presse published an interview with an alleged victim of Jutra, who requested to remain anonymous, relating sexual contact ranging from embrace to oral sex from the time the victim was 6 to 16. On the same day and based on the information in the same article, the Minister of Culture of Quebec, Hélène David, asked Cinéma Québec to remove the name Jutra from its prizes recognizing cinematic achievements in Quebec, which they did. She also mandated the Commission de toponymie (Quebec Toponymy Commission), a sub-agency of Office québécois de la langue française which reports to the Minister of Culture, to assemble a list of all streets and public places in the province bearing the name Jutra.

Oh I know lol, it's just so maddening to see. I was expecting praise for Missy but they were just there, everywhere.

Tweets will just say "video vanguard award" without his name and they're in the comments with "actually it's the #MichaelJacksonVideoVanguardAward".

They keep promoting these people who are saying things with less legitimacy than Wade and James' claims, but they're too dumb to see it. They're deranged morons. One of the things I saw linked was using a video of Chingy defending MJ, Chingy!

all they have to do is quietly call it the video vanguard award - no one would even notice the name drop. MTV & Viacom are so fucking stupid.

They should absolutely change the name because it’s a stain on the award.
