HBO's Leaving Neverland documentary has been the talk of social media for some time now. While Michael Jackson's brothers and one of his nephews have spoken out against the film, other members of his immediate family have remained silent until now.
Paris Jackson, daughter of the late singer, addressed the controversy in a series of tweets on Thursday (Mar. 7).
The 20-year-old wrote, "Y'all take my life more seriously than I do," and jokingly told fans to calm down.
y’all take my life more seriously than i do. calm yo tittaaaaysss— Paris-Michael K. J. (@ParisJackson) March 7, 2019
i didn’t mean to offend by expressing that titties should be calm, i know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up. but reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage and also.... it feels better to mellow out.— Paris-Michael K.

The fan tried to convince Paris that the "bigger picture" is her father's "legacy ruined" and his named "smeared forever," but she was unmoved.
Paris had a different opinion on what she should be focusing on. "So... not love and peace and trying to carry that message out? tabloids and lies are the bigger picture? I'll pray for you," she tweeted.
The bigger picture is your father’s legacy ruined and his name smeared forever but whatever though— omerta (@omertaamor) March 7, 2019
When the fan bought up possible boycotts of her father's music, Paris wrote, "yeah they do that to everyone with a good heart and tries to make a difference but do you really think that it's impossible to tear his name down ? like do you truly believe they stand a chance ? relax and have peace."
yeah they do that to everyone with a good heart and tries to make a dfference but do you really think that it’s possible to tear his name down ? like do you truly believe they stand a chance ? relax and have peace.— Paris-Michael K. J. (@ParisJackson) March 7, 2019
HBO's two-part, four-hour documentary recounted the testimony of Wade Robson and James Safechuck, two men who accused the singer of child molestation. Michael Jackson's estate has filed a $100 million lawsuit against the network and released several statements denying accusations made in the film.
