Paris Jackson apologized after being criticized for posing for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar in Singapore. The bisexual daughter of Michael Jackson says he has not been aware of the fact that homosexuality in Singapore is forbidden by law.
The 20-year-old fashion designer had placed the cover on Instagram but decided to remove it after the criticism.
“I did not know, I’m sorry, I was grateful for the chance I got, but I’m going to remove the post now,” Jackson said on Twitter .
Jackson also views her appearance on the cover from another side. “I would like to add that someone who is an open member of the (LGBTQ) community and on the cover of a magazine in a country opposed to this community should be applauded.”
“Is not that a step in the right direction? Again, I am very sorry. I did not want to be hypocritical or hurt anyone, “she writes in a tweet.
i didn’t know, i am sorry. 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. https://t.co/ntokVfCZZS
