Paris Jackson has responded to claims that she thinks her famous father, Michael Jackson, is ‘innocent’ – after Leaving Neverland aired on HBO and Channel 4.
Taking to Twitter, the 20-year-old replied to a news article that stated: “Paris Jackson believes her father, Michael, is innocent of sex abuse claims.”
In a since-deleted tweet, Paris wrote: “I actually haven’t made any statements yet, especially regarding how it affects my work life. You guys are reaching a bit. At least this wasn’t a disgusting and attacking article though.”
In another tweet, Paris added: “Y’all take my life more seriously than I do. Calm yo tittaaaaysss.”
In a separate post, she wrote, “i didn’t mean to offend by expressing that titties should be calm, i know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up. but reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage and also…. it feels better to mellow out.”
After a Twitter user replied, “The bigger picture is your father’s legacy ruined and his name smeared forever but whatever though,” Paris responded by saying, “so….. not love and peace and trying to carry that message out? tabloids and lies are the bigger picture? i’ll pray for you.”
The Twitter user then added, “No, they want to tear his name down and stop playing his music but it’s cool like who cares that he died for this,” and Paris replied, “yeah they do that to everyone with a good heart and tries to make a dfference but do you really think that it’s possible to tear his name down ? like do you truly believe they stand a chance ? relax and have peace.” [sic]
The ‘Leaving Neverland’ documentary details past allegations of child sexual abuse made against the late Michael Jackson – focusing on accusations made by choreographer Wade Robson and computer programmer James Safechuck.
The first part of the four-hour long film aired on Channel 4 last night, and viewers were left seriously disturbed by the documentary’s shocking allegations.
Before the documentary aired on HBO in the US, the Jackson estate filed a $75 million lawsuit against the television network.
The late singer’s estate has branded the documentary as “unvetted propaganda to shamelessly exploit an innocent man no longer here to defend himself”.
