Why Paris Jackson Thinks '13 Reasons Why’ Is 'Extremely Triggering'
Michael Jackson's daughter Paris took to social media to weigh in on the Netflix show “13 Reasons Why,” which has received some criticism for its portrayal of suicide.
On Thursday, Paris emphasized to her Instagram followers, “it is also an extremely triggering thing to watch. please only watch this show with caution and keep in mind that it may put you in a dark place. if you are struggling please don't watch it. if you think you can handle it, please by all means check it out.”
Despite the warning, Paris praised the show for getting the "message across to bullies that they need to stop doing what they are doing, it really did a good job of showing how impactful words and actions can be to other human beings. you can't just do or say things to people without thinking about how it will affect them.”
The show hit close to home for Paris, who recently revealed to Rolling Stone that she attempted suicide “multiple times.” In the January issue, she shared, "It was just self-hatred. Low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn't do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore.”
