The Network has removed the name in the wake of HBO’s controversial documentary “Leaving Neverland”, which focuses on sexual abuse allegations against the late pop superstar, reports “pagesix.com”.

MTV did include Jackson’s name on a press release sent out to announce rapper Missy Elliott as this year’s Vanguard recipient but other promos excluded his name.

While accepting the award, Elliott did mention Jackson during her acceptance speech. “The Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award means so much to me,” she said.
