T.I. says the producers behind the controversial “Leaving Neverland” doc are out to “Destroy another strong black historical LEGEND.”

The rapper has responded to the HBO documentary in which two men, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, claim Michael Jackson sexually abused them over a number of years when they were children.

Veteran filmmaker Dan Reed, explores those claims over four hours, and he recently announced that more victims “will come out” should he proceed with a follow-up to the film.

In MJ’s defense, however, Tip noted: “Dead men can’t speak. So what was the point again?” he wrote on Instagram March 6.

“Destroy another strong black historical LEGEND?!?! It’s several examples of pedophilia in American History… if y’all pulling up all our old shit… we gotta examine ELVIS PRESLEY, HUGH HEPHNER [sic], and a whole slew of others guilty of the same if not more!!!,” he added.

“BUT WHY US all the time?”, he continued, “there’s an agenda to destroy OUR CULTURE.” Check out his post below.

T.I. posted a clip of the King of Pop denying all abuse allegations against him during a 1999 interview with Piers Morgan.

In another post, the hip-hop star quoted a tweet that questioned why people are uncomfortable with leaving children alone with adults.

The hip-hop star responded: “These are assaults against OUR CULTURE!!! Make no mistake of it!!!”

Meanwhile, director Dan Reed tells NME that he has received threats from Jackson fans.

“I’ve received all sorts of very unpleasant emails and threats, which I don’t take seriously. There are people who feel entitled to write utter filth to a complete stranger who is examining claims of child sexual abuse – and very credible ones at that. I wonder what sort of people they are. They’re in a very special sub-group, I think, of the Michael Jackson fandom. It’s certainly not the whole fandom. Many of them are good, honest, decent people who would never think of sending [a message] like that.”

    I am a big Michael Jackson fan and I always will be. I am not going to stop listening to his music because of what these men are saying he did. They had there day in court years ago. There story keeps changing so I don’t know what to believe. What was the point of all this the man is dead, and now you want to come say something. Michael Jackson is the king of pop and always will.

    TI, you are so correct, I’ve been saying that since Surviving R Kelly. Now MJ people who think it is not then they are fooling themselves. They are muting MJ and KELZ but, not Weinstein. He gets to keep his fortune. There is such injustice towards black people. “It is easy to bring down a black man, because he own people will help you do it”.

    “…Claims of sexual child abuse,” …. then where is your documentary on the proven sexual child abuse perversion that took place in the catholic church. Yea right…we do know what this is all about and TI hit the nail on top of the head.

    TI: Please stop with the BS. This isn’t against a ‘Culture’ the allegations are against MJ. Keeping it real we know if any other brotha / man had 5 and 7 year olds hanging around them all the time, staying over night, etc. their A’s would be under the jail
