'Michael would never have done that!': Paris Jackson calls out 'really mean' paparazzi comparing her to famous dad

We’re just a day into New York Fashion Week, and drama is already brewing.

Paris Jackson scored a coveted front row seat at Tom Ford’s runway show Wednesday, but the experience wasn’t exactly a pleasant one for the model daughter of Michael Jackson.

The 20-year-old took to Twitter to call out “really mean” members of the paparazzi who yelled at her outside the fashion show because she didn’t pose for them. Jackson added that some photographers criticized her by invoking her famous father’s name, claiming that “Michael would have never done that.”


But, as Jackson points out, the King of Pop did have his own tactics for dodging the paparazzi — including wearing “hundreds if unique disguises.”

The legendary pop star — who would have turned 60 in August — resorted to wearing hats, surgical masks, and even blankets draped over his head to dodge prying cameras.

What’s more — as a fan noted in a message retweeted by the younger Jackson — the singer even had his three children wear veils to protect their privacy from the paparazzi.


Note to paps: Maybe do your research before trying to school someone on her dad’s behavior?
