The episode, "Stark Raving Dad," aired during "The Simpsons'" third season. Jackson was the voice of a character named Leon Kompowsky, a patient in a psychiatric hospital who believes he is a pop star. The character winds up rooming with Homer Simpson, Rolling Stone reported.
"Leaving Neverland" premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival, Entertainment Weekly reported. Interviewed during the documentary were Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 40, who claimed Jackson sexually abused them when they were children, the website reported
Jackson, who died in 2009, had denied any mistreatment of children.
Jackson's estate sued HBO in Los Angeles Superior Court last month, attempting to block the documentary from airing, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Brooks called “Leaving Neverland” convincing and heartbreaking.
"The documentary gave evidence of monstrous behavior," Brooks told The Wall Street Journal.
Brooks had considered “Stark Raving Dad” one of his favorites, the newspaper reported.
“This was a treasured episode. There are a lot of great memories we have wrapped up in that one, and this certainly doesn’t allow them to remain.” Brooks said. “I’m against book burning of any kind. But this is our book, and we’re allowed to take out a chapter.”
