Louis Vuitton has pulled Michael Jackson-themed clothing items from its summer menswear collection in the wake of HBO's airing of the Leaving Neverland documentary, in which two men detail Jackson's sexual abuse of them in the early '90s.

Paris Jackson, the daughter of Michael Jackson, was reportedly hospitalized after a suicide attempt, and family sources told TMZ the fallout from the Leaving Neverland documentary is partly responsible. "I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights", Louis Vuitton menswear designer Virgil Abloh said in a statement.

The fashion house is now planning to pull any pieces "that directly (feature) Michael Jackson elements" from production, with the collection that goes to stores "purely reflecting the true values of the brand and of our artistic director".

Abloh's show celebrated Jackson with an elaborate set and designs evoking the singer's world and style - set to a soundtrack of his music. "It referred only to his public life that we all know and to his legacy that has influenced a whole generation of artists and designers".
