Michael Jackson’s daughter slammed and called a “hypocrite” for being on Harper’s Bazaar Singapore cover

Paris Jackson, late pop star Michael Jackson’s 20-year old daughter, has apologised for appearing on the front cover of the magazine Harper’s Bazaar Singapore.

After confirming that she was bisexual last month, when Jackson took to Instagram on Monday to promote the September issue of the magazine, she received much flak online.

The photo she was featured in had the caption “Honoured and grateful”, and her Instagram post sparked an op-ed piece on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) news site Gay Star News, which said she was hypocritical as Singapore criminalises sex between gay men.

The Gay Star News shared a link to the story with Jackson on Twitter and said: “C’mon Paris Jackson.”

In response, Jackson apologised for being unaware of gay rights in the country and deleted her Instagram photo.

She also tweeted, “I don’t want to be hypocritical or hurt anyone, and my support for my fellow LGBTQ+ community comes first before my love for fashion”.

After some consideration through, Jackson altered her stance on the issue slightly and even called the Gay Star News story “ridiculously mean”. She also said that her cover appearance should be considered a step forward for the LGBTQ+ community.
