Wendy Williams – Slams Paris Jackson For Claiming She’s Black
This week in Rolling Stone, Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris, opened up in her first major interview about the pop star and more. In the interview, she claims to consider herself “black.” She details how Michael would “look me in the eyes and he’d point his finger at me and he’d be like, ‘You’re black. Be proud of your roots.’ And I’d be like, ‘OK, he’s my dad, why would he lie to me?’ So I just believe what he told me. ‘Cause, to my knowledge, he’s never lied to me.”
Talk show host Wendy Williams did not hold her tongue on the issue, stating, “She considers herself black, period. She’s not going to address this again. She was raised black. Her father would constantly remind her of what it means to be black and proud and so don’t ask her again,” William recapped. “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 you when they got steel to your neck on the turnpike. It’s what they see.”
“But that’s cute, and good for her,” Williams added.
Paris has taken to Twitter to respond that “she didn’t birth me”and “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.”
