We have to admit that seeing the way people are online and the way that they judge people. Yes, we talk shit but when it comes to the way that people deal with grief – never. We don’t think that the way people deal with grief is up for discussion.
So all of the people that are criticizing Paris Jackson for not posting about her Dad’s birthday is really fucked up.
Paris though, handled it with class. She took to Instagram and
“When he was alive, he used to hate anybody acknowledging his birthday, wishing him a happy birthday, celebrating it, nothing like that,” Paris said, “He actually didn’t want us to even know when his birthday was because he didn’t want us to throw a party.”
She commented on the fact that “social media is apparently how people express their love and affection these days.” We’re glad that she brought that up, because we think that it’s bullshit that people use that as a barometer for how much people care.
“If you don’t wish someone a happy birthday via social media, it apparently means that you don’t love them, you don’t care about them,” she continued, speaking about her Dad, Michael Jackson’s birthday, “There have been times where I don’t post anything for my dad’s birthday, and people lose their f-cking minds.”
“They tell me to kill myself. And they’re basically measuring my love for my own father based off of what I post on Instagram,” she said. Can someone explain to me how anyone would threaten her? How does this make any sense? Like what did she do?
We don’t know anything about her relationship with her father. As human beings we need to be kinder and more understanding. We need to let people celebrate and experience things in their own way.
But death threats are never acceptable. Ever. Leave these kids alone.
She captioned the post, “please don’t use a man you have never met as an excuse to abuse, manipulate, and harass his daughter (who you also have never met).”
We couldn’t agree more.
