Paris Jackson isn’t a fan of Wendy Williams. The daughter to the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, didn’t hesitate to respond to the talk show maven’s less-than-stellar review of her Rolling Stone cover story.
“She has not made her mark on her own,” Williams said of the aspiring model. “You cannot be on the cover of one of the most prestigious entertainment and influential magazines in the world and just be the daughter of and tell your story inside.” The Wendy host sipped her tea as she went on to discuss Paris’ thoughts on her father’s death, which she felt weren’t all that shocking. “She thinks her dad was murdered,” Williams echoed. “We’ve heard this before.”

In her final blow, the pop-culture enthusiast downplayed the Jackson’s blackness, which her father instilled in her. “I get that she considers herself black and everything, but I’m just talking about the visual because you know … black is not what you call yourself. It’s what the cops see when they got steel to your neck on the turnpike. It’s what they see, but that’s cute.”

The teen brushed off Williams’ comments on her race in a now-deleted tweet, which said she “didn’t birth me so,” according to Billboard. With no plans to entertain the press on matters she insists she’s made clear already, Paris kept the rest of her defense short as well. “[She] seems to think about the family a lot considering she makes all these claims about us. why are we on her mind so often,” she tweeted on Thursday (Jan. 26).

There’s no telling if the queen of shade will attempt to keep this going, but it looks like the conversation is over on Jackson’s end.
