The teenage daughter of Michael Jackson spoke out when her father was insulted on the radio.
The world’s collective hearts broke when, during Michael Jackson’s televised funeral, little Paris Jackson approached the microphone and told every member of the audience that she loved her father and that she will miss him. I know I cried my own eyes out at that moment. It was a reminder that, regardless of what we think of Michael Jackson, there are still real people in his life.
Yesterday was the three-year anniversary of the King of Pop’s death and, unfortunately, Paris had to speak up yet again on her late father’s behalf after Motley Crue bassist, Nikki Sixx, made some insulting comments about Jackson on his syndicated radio show, Sixx Sense.
Although, just 14 years old, she took to Twitter to voice her disappointment without being inflammatory. In fact, she handled herself much better than some grown up celebrities who find themselves on the receiving end of unsavory commentary. She tweeted: "Heyy quick question dude - and this is coming from a huge fan of motley crue - but why do u feel the need to hate on talented ppl?"
Feisty but to-the-point and respectful.
To his credit, Sixx seemed to regret his actions replying: "Hello parisJackson. My snarky humor and sarcasm sometimes gets the best of me. I sincerely apologize to you and your family. God Bless." He also indicated that he had sent her a direct message as well. She gracefully accepted his apology and he even invited her on his show saying: "If ya ever wanna come on SixxSense and talk about what YOUR working on would love have you on."
Wow. See? Some Hollywood hotheads could learn a lot from this turn of events.
