Paris Jackson Speaks After She was Criticised for not Supporting Janet Jackson at the #BBMAs

Hours after fans called out Paris Jackson for not supporting her aunt, Janet Jackson, during her Icon Award performance at the just-concluded Billboard Music Awards, the actress has now taken to her Instagram to write the critics a long letter.

In case you missed how the drama started: Janet Jackson gave her first television performance in nearly a decade at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards, where she became the first black female to receive the Icon Award.

While Janet’s mother Katherine Jackson, her nephew Prince Jackson and sister Rebbie Jackson cheered her on from inside the MGM Grand Arena, other fans showed support on social media.

But Paris Jackson, who is the daughter of Michael Jackson, only wrote ‘Ditto’ on her Instagram Story, stirring heated reactions form folks who were not happy with her behaviour.

Well, she has now responded, and in the long letter, talked about the wrinkles in their family fabric.

“Dear social media followers, friends, stalkers, lovers and haters, and fellow moonwalkers: Please do not tell me/demands/try to control how I handle my relationship with the people in my life, specifically my family. As amazing and as s–tty as things can be, it is no one’s business but ours. I understand that some of you feel some sort of connection or need to be a part of our lives considering you watched us grow up. However, I am handling my situation exactly how my father did. And I am happy keeping it that way. I will always have love and respect for my family. ALWAYS. There is nothing more or less than that, that you need to know.Thank you for understanding.

Every family has their moments of trauma, heartbreak, separation, love, oneness, tribe, pain, everything. EVERY FAMILY. My family, specifically, and a good number of others…well, our drama is broadcasted worldwide through media. But that doesn’t mean our family issues are any different from yours. Ours are just made public. Every level has another devil. Every life has their own s–t to deal with. We ain’t inferior or superior to y’all. We’re all f–king human. So let’s act like it. I appreciate any and every person reading this and I’m grateful for everything in my life, positive and negative.”

Well, what do you think?
