A glove and a fedora once worn by Michael Jackson have been removed from display at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis in the wake of renewed child sexual abuse allegations against him.
The decision to remove the items, along with a poster of the late pop icon, was made "in an excess of caution" following the allegations in the HBO documentary "Leaving Neverland," according to Kimberly Harms Robinson, director of media and public relations.
"As the world's largest children's museum, we are very sensitive to our audience," Robinson said.
Another museum official, speaking to the Indy Star, said its exhibits aim to showcase "people of high character."
