Producers of 'The Simpsons' pull episode featuring Michael Jackson

The producers of ``The Simpsons'' are removing a classic episode that featured the voice of Michael Jackson.

Executive producer James L. Brooks told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday ``it feels clearly the only choice to make.'' He said fellow executive producers Matt Groening and Al Jean are ``of one mind on this.''

The action follows HBO's broadcast of the documentary ``Leaving Neverland,'' in which two men allege Jackson sexually abused them as children. Jackson's family has criticized the program, and his estate is suing HBO.

In the 1991 ``Stark Raving Dad'' episode, Jackson voiced a character who claims to be Jackson and who meets Homer Simpson in a mental institution. The singer is listed in credits as John Jay Smith.

The episode will be removed from streaming services and future DVD sets.
