Disney+ has recently launched in the US, and the new streaming service has been forced to put out some warnings and revisions to its content catalog.

One of the most popular shows which forms part of the Disney+ library is The Simpsons, which is available in its entirety on the platform.

However, one of the episodes has been pulled from the collection due to its controversial nature.

The first episode from season three, titled Stark Raving Dad, sees Homer placed in an institution where he makes friends with a patient called Leon who believes he is Michael Jackson.

The singer, who was not credited in the episode, was not behind the voice of the character. Instead, Leon was played by Kipp Lennon.

However, since documentary series Leaving Neverland was aired earlier this year, the episode has been pulled from syndication.

This is because the documentary revealed details of the sexual abuse allegations against Michael Jackson. His family denies all allegations against the late singer.

Executive producer Al Jean told The Daily Beast: ‘What saddens me is, if you watch that documentary — which I did, and several of us here did — and you watch that episode, honestly, it looks like the episode was used by Michael Jackson for something other than what we’d intended it.

‘It wasn’t just a comedy to him, it was something that was used as a tool. And I strongly believe that. That, to me, is my belief, and it’s why I think removing it is appropriate.

‘I think it was part of what he used to groom boys. I really don’t know, and I should be very careful because this is not something I know personally, but as far as what I think, that’s what I think. And that makes me very, very sad.’
