Michael Jackson’s 65th birthday would have been on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, but instead of celebrating the day, some people criticized Paris Jackson, the 25-year-old Michael Jackson’s daughter.
How did Paris Jackson react?
She expressed the same through a video posted on Instagram. In the clip uploaded on Tuesday by Paris Jackson, she said,
“Today’s my dad’s birthday, and back when he was alive, he hated anybody acknowledging his birthday, wishing him a happy birthday, celebrating it, nothing like that. He didn’t want us to know when his birthday was because he didn’t want us to throw a party or anything like that.”
The 25-year-old further added,
“That being said, social media is apparently how people express their love and affection these days, and if you don’t wish someone a happy birthday via social media, it apparently means you don’t love them you don’t care about them.”
The singer-actress also said,
“There are times when I don’t post anything for my dad’s birthday, and people lose their f–king minds — they tell me to kill myself, and they’re measuring my love for my father based on what I post on Instagram.”
She said this before cutting the video and showing herself opening for a show in Iowa.
This video showed that she paid tribute to her father and the King of Pop’s birthday. Some people think that she should not be on stage while doing this.
Paris, while being on stage, told the audience that her father put 50 years of sweat, blood, passion, and tears into doing what he did. This was all so that she owed everything to her father.
The video also includes Paris telling the fans how they can honor Michael Jackson, the 13-time Grammy winner.
“My suggestion would be, you know, there’s always ways to get involved with raising awareness for climate change, doing stuff for the environment, animal rights activism. These were things that he loved, and he was very interested in.”
How did Michael Jackson die?
Michael Jackson, also known as the King of Pop, died on June 25, 2009, at the age of 50 due to acute propofol intoxication.
Dr. Conrad Murray, his physician, was sentenced to four years in jail as he was found guilty in the case of the overdose death of the singer.
Paris Jackson wished a happy birthday to his dad while defending herself after not wishing him. This choice had some fans telling her to kill herself.
The singer posted the video on Tuesday and received extreme reactions from the fans of MJ. They had been attacking her as she did not pay tribute to her dad online, which, as per her, is ridiculous and devastating.
Paris paid tribute to her dad in her concert on Tuesday before she reminded the fans that her dad was against big celebrations.
Amy Sedaris, the actress, faced backlash after she honored Michael Jackson online.
Many comments on her post were filled with anger as they blamed her for paying tribute to a singer who is alleged to have sexually abused minors.
It appears like people are getting mad irrespective of the fact whether you post about Michael Jackson or not.
