If Michael Jackson were still alive, surely he would have retweeted this anti-racist message from his daughter Paris

Fed up with fans and media altering the color of their skin to their liking, the model explodes on Twitter.

There are many celebrities who at some point in their career have been submerged in the controversy to alter the tone of their skin to look like something they are not. Just under a year ago, for example, Kim Kardashian ‘s accused of racist by visibly darken his face for an advertising campaign for its line of beauty.

Her critics did not understand that unnecessary appropriation of African-American culture to sell makeup, and she, aware of the mistake, immediately asked for forgiveness. “Obviously I never try to offend anyone, ” he told The New York Times when the outrage grew.

“I was very dark when we took the pictures and maybe the contrast was a bit bad, but I showed the image to a lot of people, too many in the industry, none of us got attention about it, nobody mentioned it. I respect the people who could feel the way they felt, but we made the necessary changes to that and the other photos, we saw the problem, we adapted and we changed it right away, I definitely learned from it. “

But she, of course, has not been the only one who has suffered the wrath of public opinion for something like that. In fact, there is someone who decades earlier also had to endure all kinds of jokes to perform precisely the opposite process: white skin. We refer, of course, to Michael Jackson, who always defended himself against the accusations by stating that his change was the fault of an illness and not supposedly aesthetic whims.

The truth was never discovered, but both cases demonstrate the extent to which society can be susceptible in terms of racial pride. As if the color of the skin was the only thing that defines someone culturally.

Something that, curiously, could change in the future thanks precisely to the daughter of the king of pop, Paris Jackson, who is fed up of seeing how her fans and some media alter the taste of her skin to make her look more racial, she has published a message asking them to stop.

“I appreciate everything you do for me, I really enjoy every image you publish, but please, stop clarifying my skin to make me look more white and stop darkening it to make me look more mulatto,” he claims on his Twitter.

“I am what I am, I am very aware of my appearance and I have finally learned to be happy with it”, he finished, provoking a barrage of comments that led him to insist that more than once he has met people who tell him “Not being mulatto enough to be multiracial.”
