Paris Jackson Suicide Attempt & Cyberbullying Goes Too Far
At 1:30 a.m. on Wednesday June 5, paramedics were called to the Jackson family’s Calabasas home. Paris Jackson was taken out on a stretcher after an attempt to take her own life. Jackson is now recovering and that family asks that we respect their privacy during this time.
Paris Jackson was protected by her father, Michael Jackson, more than a lot of celebrity kids get protected. He had his children wear masks in public so that no one would recognize their face when they went out without him. After his death, Paris, Prince and Blanket were thrown into the world their father wanted to protect them from.
Paris went from home schooling to private school. She told Oprah that she has been bullied at school and cyberbullied. Jackson has built a prominent Twitter following of over one million and become a cheerleader. The cause for concern came when the 15-year-old changed her hairstyle dramatically. What I find funny is that no one questioned Emma Watson when she cut off all of her hair, but Paris suddenly is in trouble?
Was Paris Jackson Cutting Herself?
Tabloids began running rumors that she was cutting herself. TMZ ran photos of Paris’ wrists, scarred. Then, Paris herself posted a 20-minute YouTube tutorial on doing her makeup.Throughout the video, Jackson checks her phone, makes faces at the camera, says she is “crazy” and “needs serious help,” and acts, simply, like a 15-year-old.
Being a teenager is hard under any circumstance, but when your every move is documented and watched life seems impossible. Paris Jackson seems to have dealt with the pressures from the media in her own ways, like a dramatic hair do-over, but this most recent act has everyone concerned about Michael Jackson’s pop princess.
We wish Paris the best as she recovers and will bring you updates as they come in.
