Paris Jackson Fires Back at Instagram Haters, Says Her Dad 'Was Ripped to Shreds': 'I Will Not Let That Happen
By Alex Ungerman
Paris Jackson is asking fans to ease up with the pressure on Instagram.
The 17-year-old daughter of late music icon, Michael Jackson, took to Instagram this week to criticize the "f**king ridiculous" expectations that she be more responsive on her social media accounts.
"I am expected to literally sit on my ass all day replying to comments people leave me (positive and negative)?" she wrote. "I have AA meetings to go to. Family obligations. PERSONAL obligations."
"I appreciate the love and support, but the expectations are f**king ridiculous," Paris added, before addressing the struggles her father -- who died in 2009 -- faced with his fame. "The expectations for my DAD were f**king ridiculous. He didn't owe you anything, yet he was ripped to shreds DAILY. I will not let that happen to me."
The actress also addressed her attempted suicide in 2013, writing, "People have been ramming me since the second I unchecked the privacy button. I'm just not taking sh*t anymore...like when I was 14 and deleting every single comment by hand because people were fighting too much and sending to so much hate to the point where I was suicidal? It's always been like this."
Despite all that Paris has had to endure since her father's death, she's grown up to be a remarkable young person.
Last April, Paris began dating 18-year-old soccer player, Chester Castellaw, and the couple made their red carpet debut in May.
