Paris Jackson Vows to “Move to Africa” if Romney ElectedPublished by Natasha Fierce on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Paris Jackson refuses to be a constituent of President Romney. The outspoken 14-year-old daughter of late pop icon Michael Jackson, who lights more fires on Twitter than an arsonist in a forest, tweeted her political views to her nearly one million followers earlier today:
“k i hate politics, but at least i care about this country…if Obama wasn’t president, America would be flushed down the toilet#voteobama”
The young beauty went on to blame George W. Bush for many of the country’s problems, then vowed that she would “move to Africa” should Mitt Romney be elected president in November. Now, every dramatic teenager is entitled to her opinion, but it seems Miss Jackson hasn’t really thought through what life would be like under, say, President Omar al-Bashir of the Sudan. A conservative in the Oval Office ain’t nothin’ compared to dealing with the lines at the local DMV in Khartoum, child.
After the inevitable backlash to her comments, Paris dug in her heels and fired another tweet: “spoke my mind, said my opinions… don’t reeeallyy care if you disagree with me… #sorrynotsorry #voteobama”
One day , a 30-something Paris Jackson is going to look back on her teenage tweets and cringe. But for now, gotta appreciate her spirit.
