Los Angeles: Paris Jackson, daughter of the late popstar Michael Jackson, has hit out at fans on Instagram for expecting too much out of her.
The backlash came after Paris -- who is believed to have split from her ex-boyfriend Chester Castellaw -- defended herself after she was criticised for smoking a cigarette while still a year off the legal age in some American states.
Paris hit out at the "ridiculous" expectations people had for her father, and insisted she is under similar pressure, reports mirror.co.uk.
Commenting on an Instagram photograph, the 17-year-old ranted: "This if f***ing ridiculous. I am expected to literally sit on my a** all day replying to comments people leave me (positive and negative)?
"I have a meeting to go to. Family obligations. Personal obligations. It's so f***ing selfish that I am literally attacked on every f***ing thing I post just because people that I don't even known aren't getting what they want. (sic)" she wrote.
The teenager -- who has a separate Instagram account for her artwork under the name 's***tyextratrerrestrial' -- insisted she will not allow herself to be "ripped to shreds".
She continued: "I don't know any of you. I appreciate the love and support, but the expectations are f***ing ridiculous.
"The expectations for my DAD were f***ing ridiculous. He didn't owe you anything, yet he was ripped to shreds daily. I will not let that happen to me. (IANS)
