She’s chilling out! The Jackson family has been under scrutiny ever since the January 25 release of HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary, which recounts the stories of Wade Robson and James Safechuck, two men who claim they were sexually abused as children by the late pop icon Michael Jackson. But Paris Jackson is choosing to take the peaceful approach to the backlash against her father — and she took to her Instagram Story on Friday, March 8 to reveal how she’s relieving stress amid all of the drama surrounding her dad.
In the clip, the 20-year-old recorded herself as she took a hit from a bong, inhaled and blew smoke out towards the camera. The California native seemed to be enjoying herself while smoking and playing guitar after she finally broke her silence on the Leaving Neverland documentary on Twitter earlier this week.
“Y’all take my life more seriously than Ido. Calm yo tittaaaaysss [sic],” the model wrote on Twitter. She got a bit of backlash from her fans for seemingly taking a comedic stance on all the conversations taking place on social media amid the very serious child sex abuse allegations against her father. She followed up her first statement with a more heartfelt message.
“I didn’t mean to offend by expressing that titties should be calm, I know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up. But reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage and also … it feels better to mellow out,” the musician wrote. “Smoke some weed n [sic] think about the bigger picture. Chillax my dudes.”
Meanwhile, the rest of the Jackson family does not have the same laidback attitude as Paris. One day after Leaving Neverland was released, Michael Jackson’s estate released an official statement and claimed that the documentary is “the kind of tabloid character assassination Michael Jackson endured in life, and now in death.”
