Liz Taylor says Michael Jackson is Innocent

Actress Elizabeth Taylor issued a statement on Sunday defending her good friend Michael Jackson, who faces multiple child molestation charges. 

“I believe Michael is absolutely innocent and that he will be vindicated,” Taylor said in her statement.

She also took aim at the press, saying they have handled the story “abominably”. 

“Their whole reaction is that he is guilty. I thought the law was ’innocent until proven guilty.’ I know he is innocent and I hope they all eat crow,” Taylor said of the press and how they have been covering the story.

Taylor was at Jackson’s side the last time he was accused of molesting a child. When that story broke, she flew to Singapore to help support her friend.
