He believes in equality, black lives matter, LGBTQ, civil rights, environmental issues and if you believe his Twitter title and current picture, he is also a doctor of medicine. Andrew Greene certainly gives you the impression that he is an all round nice guy, with his head firmly attached to his shoulders.
However, spend as little as 5 to 10 minutes on either his Twitter or Facebook profile, and you’ll soon discover that Andrew is aggressive, arrogant, narcissistic and most of all a self-righteous spam bot who cannot distinguish between fact and fiction. And no, that’s not a random picture of a guy with tin foil wrapped around his head, that’s actually Andrew doing his impression of “republicans and Trump supporters“.
Despite the cool dude Ali G look, Andrew Greene isn’t in his teens or early 20s, nor is he a real doctor, but a 36 year old man from South Carolina who describes himself as a “political scientist” on his Facebook page.
Andrew Greene is part of the so-called MJ family and venomously defends Michael Jackson’s actions of repeatedly sleeping in bed with a series of unrelated boys, and describes those who question Jackson’s motives and supports his accusers as a sadistic cult, paedophile fantasists and even paedophiles themselves.
A long winded rant from Andrew with the real Brett Barnes agreeing.
Below is a Facebook video from 1 January 2020, where Andrew Greene is wishing the MJ fam and non-fans a happy New Year, except for the “paedophile fantasists cult” who he hopes “suffers nothing but misery”. Hmm, not particular pleasant language from someone who prides themselves on being a gay and civil rights supporter.
To my knowledge, I’ve never exchanged a single word with Andrew Greene on Twitter, and was only made aware of the account when it was announced that he would be part of Taj Jackson’s research and production team for his unpublished documentary: The Truth Runs Marathons (now renamed to Re-Righting HIStory), which is still stuck at first base, despite being announced shortly after the release of Leaving Neverland in 2019.
Though Andrew Greene likes to manipulate people with misinformation when it comes to Jackson’s “innocence”, he also has a tendency to block anybody who he feels threatened by, or more specifically, those who know more information about Michael Jackson’s boy bedding behaviour, than he would dare to research.
Those who have the privilege of engaging with Andrew Greene on Twitter are often subjected to a barrage of repetitive self-righteous spam, with a heavy focus on authority figures such as “child protection and intelligence agencies“, who all according to him, dissolved any theory of Jackson being a predatory child sex abuser.
Most Jackson stans have a tendency to cling onto any spec of dust that “exonerates” Jackson of wrongdoing, but Andrew Greene may be the champion, when it comes to one claim: that the FBI investigated and cleared Jackson.
Okay, you’ve already heard that claim a million times before, but Andrew Greene goes one step further and posts a sub- 40 second video featuring a very professional looking man, confirming the recently released FBI files exonerated Jackson of being a child predator, no ifs or buts. Andrew has such confidence in this very short video, that is not unusual to see it being posted as many as 10-15 times per month on his Twitter account. In fact, while writing this article, he posted it just 4 hours ago.
Didn’t anybody tell Dr. Andrew Greene that “American intelligence” believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, which turned out to be false?
I’d never seen this video before until Andrew Greene started spamming it obsessively, and can only presume it was released shortly after the heavily retracted, and almost unreadable FBI files on Michael Jackson was released in December 2009. At first glance the video appears to be fairly convincing, not only is it being broadcast on a major US television show, but the grey-haired guy wearing the suit comes across as very knowledgeable.
(Dr. Andrew Greene’s, sub- 40 second version)
But after spending as little as 5 minutes on YouTube, I found the full video, which unsurprisingly isn’t sub- 40 seconds, but the segment from that particular show is 6 minutes 15 seconds long, and contains interviews from 2 other individuals and ex-FBI agents, Jim Clemente and Brad Garrett, who state that there was never any operational investigation concerning child sex abuse, and that the FBI only assisted local law enforcement, who ironically charged him with child molestation. Not only that, but the grey-haired guy in the suit isn’t some impartial 3rd party, but long term Jackson family lawyer, Brian Oxman, who wasn’t only fired from the 2005 case by Thomas Mesereau, but also later had his licence revoked in 2012 for “dishonest and unethical conduct, including failing to advise the bar after he had been fined by a judge and commingling personal funds in a client trust account.”
(The full 6 minute plus version, which tells a completely different story)
In the video, both Jim Clemente and Brad Garrett repeat that the FBI were only involved in matters that were beyond the expertise of local law enforcement, such as analysing Jackson’s computer hard drives or tracking down the location of potential witnesses. The FBI were also involved in assessing whether the trial was at risk of a terrorist attack. Furthermore, it’s also pointed out that its not unusual for famous people to have FBI files, as in many cases, this can be in regard to individuals making threats against those people, as in Jackson’s case.
If the video isn’t convincing enough, the FBI’s own webpage on Michael Jackson puts to bed the fan and disbarred lawyer claim that they were actively involved in investigating him for child sex abuse.
The FBI states: “Michael Jackson (1958-2009) was a famous singer and entertainer. Between 1993 and 1994 and separately between 2004 and 2005, Jackson was investigated by California law enforcement agencies for possible child molestation. He was acquitted of all such charges. The FBI provided technical and investigative assistance to these agencies during the cases. The Bureau also investigated threats made against Mr. Jackson and others by an individual who was later imprisoned for these crimes. These investigations occurred between 1992 and 2005.”
The FBI even released a podcast and stated: “That’s Dave Hardy, chief of the FBI’s Freedom of Information Program, who says that while FBI didn’t investigate Jackson, the files now available show the FBI working with other agencies.”
The files themselves (at least the parts you can read on CSA) are essentially an archive of information that comes from the LAPD and Santa Barbara police departments. There’s even a page containing screenshots from a British tabloid concerning Terry George and his claim that Michael Jackson used to have phone sex with him.
Brian Oxman is clearly lying throughout the video, but as a long-term family lawyer (or I should say X), you wouldn’t expect him to say anything else other than Michael was a wonderful and “innocent” man. He was, after all, the man who claimed that an insurance company paid the huge multi-million dollar Jordan Chandler settlement, rather than Jackson himself. That turned out to be false.
I don’t know whether Andrew Greene manipulated the video himself, or whether he found it via another stan. Either way, the video is a deliberate piece of misinformation that exposes the morally bankrupt nature of the pretend doctor. Not only that, the video is in violation of Twitter’s rules concerning “synthetic and manipulated media policy“.
Twitter state: “You may not share deceptively altered media on Twitter in ways that mislead or deceive people about the media’s authenticity where threats to physical safety or other serious harm may result.”
And Twitter will remove or label any media content that’s been: “substantially edited in a manner that fundamentally alters its composition, sequence, timing, or framing”.
So yes, Andrew Greene has repeatedly violated the terms and conditions of Twitter. And that’s just via posting this manipulated FBI video, not any of his other claims. However, reporting this manipulated video isn’t straightforward. Twitter only allow those in Australia, South Korea and the United States to report a misleading video. And this feature is still in the experimental phase, so there’s no guarantee that Twitter will take action against this video, or any others.
The strangest thing about Andrew Greene is that he joined Twitter in October 2015. And while I cannot go through every single tweet of his, I did look through the majority of his 2018 entries, and there was no obsessive misinformation, nor was there any sign of that “FBI” video. I could only find 2 tweets concerning the Jackson family, one acknowledging Joe Jackson’s death and one acknowledging Michael Jackson’s birthday. It’s almost like Andrew was nothing more than a casual fan and then became a manic misinformation troll after the release Leaving Neverland.
As with most post concerning Michael Jackson stans, there’s always a big dose of irony. Andrew Greene likes to call people who are critical of Jackson as paedophile fantasists or paedophiles themselves, but his Facebook page is littered with dubious claims, including donating $30,000 of his own money to his favourite political party, owning a speedboat, big house, multiple vehicles, and of course doctoring a photograph of himself (complete with stethoscope) onto a background of a medical setting. I don’t know, but I get the feeling that Andrew is the real fantasist who is trying to normalise man/boy bed relationships.
