Paris Jackson has reacted angrily to white actor Joeseph Fiennes playing her dad Michael Jackson.A lot of people have reacted in dismay since they heard the news that the actor will be playing the King of pop,but let's be honest,can a black man really play Jacko?I love Michael,in fact i can say he is my musical hero,but as a black person,i have seen nothing to tell me that Mike was proud of his black roots.It seems the Jackson family just have an issue with their race.
Remember Bobby Brown said Janet actually told him that she cannot be with him in a serious relationship because her dad does not want her marrying a black man or dating one at that.
Can we really say Mike would have been upset if he were alive?He'd probably want Brad Pitt to play him,lol.
Anyway,his daughter Paris did not agree with all these and she showed it in an incredibly strong manner by tweeting that the thought of a white man playing her father in the British tv production was very offensive and makes her wanna vomit!! WOW! Chom on! As her dad would say.
And she is white!I am very happy and glad to see she is proud of her dads heritage and wants to protect it.
That is not the only thing the feisty young girl found offensive either.Elizabeth Taylor who is her godmother and as we all know ,close friend of her father, is also portrayed and she was not happy with that either.Fiennes stars with Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox as Marlon Brando in "Urban Myths," a series of "tru ... ish" stories including a fabled one in which the three stars supposedly took a cross-country road trip together after 9/11.
"It angers me to see how obviously intentional it was for them to be this insulting, not just towards my father, but my godmother liz as well," Jackson tweeted.
"Where is the respect," she added. "They worked through blood sweat and tears for ages to create such profound and remarkable legacies. Shameful portrayal."
An interesting thing though,when Michael was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey in that famous 1993 interview,he strongly was against a white man playing him.So i guess that settles that.I am sure they could have found plenty light skinned black men for the role.Maybe the producers wanted a bit of controversy to sell the movie.Well,they have very much succeeded,cos i bet a lot of people now wanna see who this guy is and what he is gonna look like in the character.I do too.
