MTV is considering a move to remove Michael Jackson’s name from the Vanguard Award!

According to Page Six, this all stems from the beef and fallout following the “Leaving Neverland” documentary, “There’s a lot of heated discussion at the network about how to handle the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award this year, and it’s getting ugly.”

Chile… this could get UGLY!!! Alledgely there’s a lot of talk about changing the name or getting rid of it all together!  Over the years, lots of artist have received the award like, Kayne West, Rihanna, even Jennifer Lopez.   Back  in 1988, The Video Vanguard Award was first presented to Jackson and then in  1991, it was renamed after the King Of Pop.
