Paris Jackson has a strong message for her fans — it's time to end bullying.
In a revealing Instagram video, which has since been deleted (though one fan uploaded the footage to YouTube), the daughter of the late Michael Jackson opened up about the hate she’s received over the years — which led to her suicide attempt in 2013.
“When I was 14 I got so much hatred that I tried to kill myself. And then I took a two-year break from social media and people asked me to come back, to make my Instagram public again. So I did and nothing changed,” she cried.
“I've tried sticking up for myself, I've tried the whole blocking the haters thing, not reading the comments," she added. "I've tried, I've tried a lot of things, ignoring it, but it's hard. It is, when there's so much of it.”
She also explained, “I don't get why I'm such an easy target. I try to be nice to everybody that I meet. I give everyone a chance. I'm usually a very trusting person. I try to be open with you guys about what I do on a daily basis, I share my life with you, I don't hide a lot, I'm very public. So I'm sorry if there's something that I'm doing that you guys don't like. Maybe I'm too public? I don't know. I'm just tired of it, I'm just really, really tired.”
Hopefully, Paris can move past this and focus on the positive aspects of her life — like her desire to enter the medical field or her alleged marriage to Michael Snoddy.
