Say what! It has surfaced that daughter of the late rock pop icon Michael Jackson Paris attempted suicide when she was younger because the abuse she received online became too much.
The Thriller singer’s daughter spent time in hospital and a residential treatment centre in 2013 after an apparent suicide attempt, and she has now revealed in a lengthy video rant on Instagram she tried to take her own life because the hatred she received online got too much to handle.
“I don’t understand how there can be so much hatred in the world right now. I’ve tried sticking up for myself. I’ve tried the whole blocking the haters thing, not reading the comments, I’ve tried a lot of things. Ignoring it. But it’s hard when there’s so much of it. When I was 14 I got so much hatred that I tried to kill myself and I took, like, a two-year break from social media and then people asked me to come back, to make my Instagram public again, so I did. And nothing changed!”
These heartfelt words from Paris Jackson show how cruel and hurtful people can be on social media.
