18-year-old Paris Jackson has issued a heartbreaking plea to all you Internet trolls!
She writes on Instagram: “When I was 14 I got so much hatred that I tried to kill myself. 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.” Jackson posted a series of now-deleted videos on Instagram where she breaks down over the hateful comments in her feeds.
She said: “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,” she 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 was hospitalized in June 2013 for cutting her wrists and ingesting a large amount of painkillers and is still in recovery. “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,” she continued. “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.” There were some good fans who came to her rescue with one writing: “You don’t have to be afraid honey, you are a STRONG woman, Yes the haters are so annoying but you have us we are going to defend you… You are not alone.”
