Roman Polanski and Michael Jackson?

Why do you think Roman Polanski has always been revered in Hollywood as a genius despite indisputable evidence that he’s a child rapist yet when he was alive, MJ was shun by Hollywood based on inconclusive evidence?
Update: Zahavah: Goldberg actually said that? That's disgusting!
Update 2: Does anyone think it has something to do with the fact that Polanski's accuser was female and Jackson's were male?
Update 3: Steven M: When I say "hollywood" in this context, I mean people invovled in both the music and movie industry since both move in the same circle.
