Paris Jackson Calls Out People Editing Her Skin Tone

“I’m aware of what i look like”

by Sandra Song

Paris Jackson has some words for the people who edit her skin tone in photos.

Earlier today, Jackson took to Twitter to request that fans editing photos of her to stop lightening or darkening her skin. She wrote, “i appreciate everything y’all make for me, i enjoy every single edit i see. but please stop lightening my skin to make me look more white. and please stop darkening my skin to make me look more mixed."

Jackson also went on to add that she is "aware" of what she looks like and implied that she was finally in a good place where she is happy and comfortable with who she is. This is perhaps due to constant and continued speculation on her race and parentage. And given her follow-up response to another tweet, asking what she meant by making her look "more mixed," she looks to be just about over others trying to define her identity. 

“sometimes peeps say i ‘don’t look mixed enough to be bi racial,’” Jackson wrote.
