Paris Jackson used the Instagram Live function to make a 10-minute public plea to her critics to lay off her as she is trying her best to do what’s right for herself and for “human rights” in general.
She said: “I guess this is for the people that don’t agree with who I am and don’t agree with my morals and spend their time trying to hurt me. I like to think that I’m on a pretty good track, as someone that is literally still a teenager… I get it, y’all don’t like the tattoos, y’all don’t like profanity, y’all don’t like my free spirit, my outspokenness. I’m a young chick and I should be quiet, I get it.
“I am a teenager. I am doing the best I can, I’m working as hard as I possibly can to make a living for myself and create my own life. I’m fighting for human rights, I’m fighting for animal rights, I’m fighting for the environment. Basically, any liberalist movement that will create a positive impact on this planet, I’m trying to get involved in.”
And Paris – who is the daughter of late singer Michael Jackson – doesn’t understand why people seem to “hate her with such a fiery passion”. In the emotional live video, she added: “I understand that it’s not enough. No matter what I do it will never be enough and you will never be satisfied even though I’m 19 and I’m working my ass off, it’s not enough. I could adopt a s**t-ton of kids, a bunch of f***ing charity work like Angelina Jolie and y’all will still be creating rumours about me like you do with her.
“I don’t really know why people hate me with such a fiery passion, and I can’t figure it out. I don’t think it’s jealousy; I think it’s more than that … Complain about celebrities that are normalising plastic surgery, starvation in Venezuela, complain about our f***ing President. All this effort you’re putting into me, a teenager? Put it into something else. I’m not your kid; I’m not your daughter.”
