Paris Jackson Is "Incredibly Offended" by Joseph Fiennes Playing Her Dad, Michael

A teaser for British TV show Urban Myths was released earlier this week, and one person who isn't happy with the results is Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris. After it was revealed that Joseph Fiennes, a white man, would play Michael, the internet went into a frenzy, as did Paris, who shared her disgust over the controversial casting on Twitter on Tuesday. In a series of tweets, the 18-year-old admitted to being "incredibly offended" by the casting, adding, "It honestly makes me want to vomit." See her messages below.

@TheMJCast i'm so incredibly offended by it, as i'm sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want to vomit.
