The actor, model, and singer shared a recent encounter on Twitter
Paris Jackson has called out paparazzi for comparing her to her dad in a series of tweets.
The actor, model, and singer shared an encounter with photographers on her Twitter page earlier today, disputing their claims that Michael Jackson wouldn’t have acted how she did.
“i just got yelled at in a really mean way outside the tom ford show because paparazzi didn’t get a chance to shoot my face,” she wrote, explaining to her followers that the photographers wouldn’t get paid if her face wasn’t in their shots.
She said they had shouted at her: “Michael would have never done that! ugh!!!” “he did,” she countered. “a lot lol. does no one remember the hundreds of unique disguises he came up with all the time? the fuck.”
Last month, Jackson responded to LGBTQ+ fans who called her a hypocrite for appearing on the cover of the Singapore edition of Harper’s Bazaar. Jackson is openly bisexual, while same-sex marriage/sex is outlawed in Singapore.
Responding to the accusations, she wrote on Twitter: “i didn’t know, i am sorry. i was grateful for the opportunity, but i’ll delete the post now. i don’t want to be hypocritical or hurt anyone, and my support for my fellow LGBTQ+ community comes first before my love for fashion and gratitude for this opportunity. again, i’m sorry.”
She also challenged the claims, suggesting someone from the LGBTQ+ community appearing on a magazine cover where same-sex relationships are illegal is progress. “isn’t that a step forward?” she asked. “again, i am deeply sorry. i didn’t mean to be hypocritical or hurt anyone.”
Meanwhile, Michael Jackson has been at the centre of a legal battle recently, with Sony Music accused of releasing “fake” music by the artist. It was claimed that three songs on a posthumous album didn’t actually feature the late singer’s vocals.
Both Jackson’s estate and Sony Music have now been cleared by an appeals court over the long-standing lawsuit.
