Michael Jackson

The actors behind Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland are speaking out.

As we reported, the made-for-TV movie is based on the book written by the late singer's bodyguards Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard, Remembering the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days, and is meant to depict the King of Pop's everyday life.

Unfortunately for the cast and crew, the Lifetime TV project hasn't garnered support from the MJ's estate.

In case you missed it, the family said in a statement on Monday:

"To clear up any confusion or misperceptions about unsanctioned Michael Jackson projects currently in the news — including a Lifetime television movie and an animated film script recently purchased by Netflix — the Estate of Michael Jackson does not license or permit the use of any rights it owns, including to Michael's music, images, video and films, for use in unauthorized works seeking to exploit Michael's legacy."

Yikes.

In response, the biopic's stars, Navi (a famed Michael Jackson impersonator) and Chad Coleman (who plays Whitfield) have spoken out about not receiving the estate's approval.

Navi told CBS News:

We Have A Few Things To Tell You About The Bachelorette's Whaboom Guy…

OK, so. Couple of things.

You were probably just as annoyed as other fans were about the Whaboom Guy AKA Lucas Yancey receiving one of Rachel Lindsay's roses on Monday night's premiere of The Bachelorette. Like, we get producers are looking for the next Corinne, but this is just too much.

Well, thanks to the handy dandy thing we call the Internet, tons of dirt has surfaced on this annoying human and we're here to deliver the tea!

While we're sure this could apply to several of the contestants, Lucas is clearly not on the ABC show for the "right" reasons.

Just one glance at his IMDB page and you'll see this is an aspiring actor just trying get noticed. But all the whabooms probably gave that away.

Speaking of that little online resume he's built, you'll notice he appeared on WeTV's Ex Isle in 2016 with… *drumroll please*… fellow Bachelorette contestant Blake Elarbee!

Yes, that's right! Blake E. — you know, the personal trainer/aspiring drummer who was obsessed with this penis in his intro segment — didn't just pull Monday's random AF "feud" out of his ass! No, this rivalry has made its way on the small screen before!

In fact, both of these guys were on the show with their then-girlfriends when Lucas' ex, Brittney, hit it off with Blake!

So they've already a) dated the same person before on TV, and b) proven to be undeserving of our sweet Rachel's time!

Good try, ABC.

But that's not all… in case you weren't convinced that Lucas appears is a complete douche, the kind people of the Interwebs dug up this screenshot of an old Instagram post he shared fat shaming plus-size model Tess Holliday (below):
