The trailer for a British TV movie called Urban Myths has been making waves due to Michael Jackson being portrayed by white actor Joseph Fiennes in the production, with many saying the casting decision is offensive. Among those not on board with the choice of actor is Michael’s 18-year-old daughter Paris. When asked via Twitter about her thoughts on the portrayal of her father, Paris didn’t mince words in her response.
“i’m so incredibly offended by it, as i’m sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want to vomit,” she tweeted.
“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,” Paris wrote in another tweet, mentioning Elizabeth Taylor who is also portrayed in the film.
