The granddaughter of the late Joe Jackson claims to be the victim of a hate crime that resulted in her being stabbed multiple times, and she says the entire ordeal happened because she is black.
Back in the 70s, the father of the late Michael Jackson fathered a daughter named Joh’Vonnie Jackson with a woman named Cheryl Terrell. Although Joh’Vonnie was not treated as family by the other members of the Jackson family, she still maintained a strong relationship with Joe until he passed away in 2018.
Joh’Vonnie has a 25-year-old daughter named Yasmine, who was also close with Joe. On Saturday evening, Yasmine, who works as a nurse in the Las Vegas area, took to Instagram and claimed that she was the victim of a brutal attack that left her bloody and seeking medical treatment.
“I was stabbed 7 times right by my house because “I’m a ni–er,” Yasmine wrote in a caption alongside very graphic photos depicting her injuries.
Yasmine continued, “This woman chased me down and started stabbing me. She said it’s because I was a ni–er and that’s all I could hear while I was being stabbed. I can’t move my neck at all. I’m scared to be alone. I asked people to help me because she was stabbing me and nobody helped. Until someone did, actually a few people did & I am thankful for you. I pray to God that if you have any kind of hatred in your heart towards black people that you heal it. I didn’t deserve this, nobody does. Oh & btw I’m still f–king proud to be black.”
According to the photos, it appears Yasmine received multiple stitches along the left side of her face, as well as other places on her body. During a time when racial tensions are running extremely high in America amid the murder of George Floyd, Yasmine is calling upon notable seekers of justice, like Shaun King, to help her out.
“please help me. They only are charging her with a felony battery with a deadly weapon. I feel like she deserves attempted murder and also this is a HATE CRIME. SHE CALLED ME A NI–ER & THERE ARE WITNESSES,” Yasmine pleaded.
45-year-old Joh’Vonnie Jackson, the stepsister of MJ, is devastated after the attack on her daughter and is speaking out.
“Look what this Woman did to my daughter @yasminejackson_ she tried to kill my daughter for being Black. My daughter has a good heart and has dedicated her time as a nurse to help others. She did not deserve this! F–k anyone who has enough hate in their heart to want to do this to anyone!”
Joh’Vonnie also revealed a photo of a bra she claims belongs to Yasmine and can be seen covered in blood from the attack.
