Paris Jackson slammed for 'hypocritical' Harper's Bazaar cover


Paris Jackson is facing huge backlash for her controversial cover for Harper's Bazaar Singapore.

The 20-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe appeared in a spread for the magazine in a country where gay sex is criminalized. The model's move has been slammed as 'hypocritical', especially since she only last month revealed that she came out as bi-sexual at age 14.

Jackson initially posted a photo of her cover shoot to Instagram, where critics were quick to call out Singapore's anti-LGTBQ policies. She quickly pulled the photo down and took to Twitter to apologize claiming she wasn't aware of these laws and that her LGBTQ community takes precedence.

"I didn’t know, i am sorry," she wrote on Twitter. "I was grateful for the opportunity, but i’ll delete the post now. i don’t want to be hypocritical or hurt anyone, and my support for my fellow LGBTQ+ community comes first before my love for fashion and gratitude for this opportunity. again, i’m sorry."

She later defended her decision, explaining that she believes her choice to appear on a publication's cover in a country like Singapore should instead be celebrated:
