Paris Jackson Tweets About Michael Jackson Casting 2017

Paris Jackson Is "Incredibly Offended" by Joseph Fiennes Playing Her Dad, Michael

A teaser for British TV movie Urban Myths was released earlier this week, and one person who isn't happy with the results is Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris. After it was revealed that Joseph Fiennes, a white man, would play Michael, the internet went into a frenzy, as did Paris, who shared her disgust over the controversial casting on Twitter on Tuesday. In a series of tweets, the 18-year-old admitted to being "incredibly offended" by the casting, adding, "It honestly makes me want to vomit." Her cousin Taj Jackson also weighed in, saying, "Unfortunately this is what my family has to deal with. No words could express the blatant disrespect." See more of Paris's messages below.

The series, which is set to air on Sky Arts, focuses on a rumoured road trip that Michael went on with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando after 9/11.
