Following the release of the bizarre Urban Myths trailer, Paris Jackson has spoken out about Joseph Fiennes being cast as her father, Michael Jackson. The 18-year-old tweeted, “I'm so incredibly offended by it, as i’m sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want to vomit" when asked about her thoughts on the TV series.
Paris continued to say it angered her how insulting the portrayal of not just her father, but her godmother Elizabeth Taylor (played by Stockard Channing) was. Jackson's nephew Taj also weighed in on the show, tweeting "Unfortunately this is what my family has to deal with. No words could express the blatant disrespect."
