The four-hour documentary follows the stories of Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who both claim to have been sexually abused by the late singer as children.
Although Jackson's estate continues to engage in a number of ad campaigns, lawsuits, and interviews in an attempt to limit the damage of the allegations, online reaction has been largely negative, with many calling for his legacy to be destroyed.
One person tweeted: "Following the hashtag for this is pretty awful with the victim blaming and lack of understanding of how abusers groom the victims and their families.
"Actually, scratch awful. Horrific. One look at it explains all you need to get a small insight into why so many people don't/can't talk about child sexual abuse."
Those who have turned their back on the later singer and his music since the documentary was released will no doubt be disgusted by this upturn in music sales - along with the financial boost to Michael Jackson's estate. However, perhaps it's inevitable that this would happen, given that we have easy access to music through the internet these days.
