Paris Jackson sobs as she hits out at online bullies

King of Pop’s daughter talks about past suicide attempt in emotional video before deleting it

An emotional Paris Jackson hit out at online bullies in an emotional video she posted and then deleted from her Instagram account.

Michael Jackson’s daughter cried as she opened up about bullying and her past suicide attempt, before defending new couple Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie, in the video she posted on Wednesday.

Just three years after Paris tried to kill herself she told of her heartache at being harassed by haters.

‘When I was 14 I got so much hatred that I tried to kill myself,’ the 18-year-old beauty sobbed in the video she posted on Wednesday, September 14.

‘And then I took a two-year break from social media and people asked me to come back, to make my Instagram public again.

‘So I did and nothing changed.’

‘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, I’ve tried a lot of things, ignoring it, but it’s hard. It is, when there’s so much of it.’

Paris continued: ‘And I don’t get why I’m such an easy target. I try to be nice to everybody that I meet.

‘I give everyone a chance. I’m usually a very trusting person.’

She then spoke directly to her social media fans and followers.

She said: ‘I try to be open with you guys about what I do on a daily basis, I share my life with you, I don’t hide a lot, I’m very public.

‘So I’m sorry if there’s something that I’m doing that you guys don’t like. Maybe I’m too public? I don’t know,

‘I’m just tired of it, I’m just really, really tired.’

Paris took a break from social media for two years after a suicide attempt which resulted in her checking into residential facility in Utah in June 2013.

In February this year she revealed she attends AA meetings.

In her video, Jackson mentioned Justin Bieber, who deleted his Instagram account in August after bullies picked on his new flame,  Sofia Richie and he got into a war of words with his ex Seelena Gomez.

‘Justin Bieber went into a downward spiral because everybody that he dates gets so much hate,’ Jackson said.

“I have known his girlfriend, Sofia, since I was like 12 or 13. She’s one of the sweetest girls in the world and people are telling her to kill herself!

‘I mean we’re human beings, man! We got hearts and brains and feelings, and when you say damaging things like that to people, it f–ks ’em up.”

Jackson also referenced Bieber in a tweet on Wednesday, writing: ‘I don’t blame Justin for deleting his Instagram account. The type of harassment I see on my account daily is enough to make someone suicidal.’

She concluded her clips with a messages to those who targeted her and others .

‘I mean, we’re human beings man, we’ve got hearts, and brains, and feelings, and when you say damaging things like that to people, it f***s them up.’ she said.

‘It really f***s people up when you do that and I don’t know if that’s what people want, but it’s exhausting, really and truly, its really exhausting.’

Paris finished: ‘Sorry for the rant, it’s some stuff that I’ve been holding in for a long time… years.’

While Paris was clearly devastatingly upset, comments on her recent social media posts expressed overwhelming support and love for the star.

One Instagram follower with the username m_unapazza_97_j wrote: ‘I want you to remember every moment that we will always love and support you, and that we don’t search you and appreciate just because you’re Michael Jackson’s daughter but especially because we love the real you.’

Paris later deleted the video but later posted a photo of herself with the caption: ‘Looks like I’m the villain now. didn’t know defending myself was a crime. my dearest apologies. guess my careers over lolol [sic].’
