Paris Jackson wonders why Wendy Williams has so much to say about her family


Paris Jackson covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone, discussing a variety of subjects from her late father Michael Jackson to her childhood, race and more. And while many were excited for the 18-year-old to share her story, talk show host Wendy Williams took issue with the whole thing.

"She has not made her mark on her own," Williams said during her "Hot Topics" segment. "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."

While Williams admitted Paris Jackson's interview was interesting, she argued that the 18-year-old had not accomplished enough professionally to warrant her placement the cover.

From there, Williams went on to complain that Paris Jackson considers herself black, while she has a white biological mother and light complexion. The talk show host joked somewhat sarcastically that this is the first time in about a year a black woman has been on the cover of Rolling Stone.

"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," Williams said. "But that's cute and good for her."

Watch the segment below starting at 3:43.

Needless to say, Paris Jackson -- who explained in the article that her father raised her and her brothers to be proud of being black -- was not pleased to hear this criticism. She replied on Twitter in a now-deleted comment, saying Williams "didn't birth me so."

Paris Jackson followed up, asking why Williams thinks about her family so much and makes so many claims about them, asking, "Why are we on her mind so often?"
