UPDATE: A spokesperson for Oprah Winfrey’s TV network OWN has offered a statement on the claim that Winfrey’s YouTube channel removed interviews with Wade Robson and James Safechuck amid a discrepancy made in the Leaving Neverland documentary.
Wendy Luckenbill, Senior Vice President of Communications at OWN, said that the full episode of Winfrey’s interview with Robson and Safechuck “was available on VOD/WatchOWN app through the usual post-air cycle” and it expired on April 8. The promo clips that were on Winfrey’s YouTube were on rotation when the episode was still available.
She also noted that social posts for the episode have not been removed, which is true.
