Paris Jackson breaks silence on Michael Jackson's child abuse allegations, says he had a 'good heart'
Paris had also previously addressed rumors of her flailing acting career in the wake of her father's sex abuse scandal
Paris Jackson remains a proud daughter, and she is not afraid to let the world know. The 20-year-old daughter of the King of Pop Michael Jackson recently opened up to defend her late father, after he was accused of child abuse in the new 'Leaving Neverland' documentary.
With the help of social media site Twitter, the aspiring actress referred to his "good heart" and said she was thinking about "the bigger picture". Prior to that, the 'Gringo' star had tweeted advising her fans to be "calm", before making her return to share her thoughts more fully, according to a Daily Mail report.
The 20-year-old wrote: "I didn't mean to offend by expressing that t***ies 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."
She added, "Smoke some weed n think about the bigger picture. chillax my dudes." However, some of Michael's fans weren't too happy with what Paris had to say. An angered fan replied: "The bigger picture is your father's legacy is ruined and his name smeared forever but whatever though."
The user continued, "They want to tear his name down and stop playing his music but it's cool like who cares that he died for this."
Paris then penned: "Yeah they do that to everyone with a good heart and tries to make a difference 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."
The day before, Paris had addressed rumors of her flailing acting career in the wake of her father's sex abuse scandal. In a now-deleted tweet, she 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."
The late King of Pop's nephew Taj recently spoke out on 'CBS This Morning' regarding the allegations on the late singer, with the entire Jackson family claiming that the 'Thriller' star was "naive" about children but not an abuser. Taj said: "There's a fear to put more energy into it and more eyeballs to it. That's why Janet (his aunt) hasn't said anything, because she doesn't want to make it any bigger."
'Leaving Neverland' has been causing a lot of controversies ever since its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and recently, it was revealed that Michael used to stay in touch with one of his alleged rape victims by sending him daily faxes. Wade Robson's family said that the singer would send so many messages at times that the room would fill up with paper.
