After poking fun at the paparazzi who “almost gets hit by a car” whenever they have an encounter, the only daughter of the King of Pop answered, off-handedly saying she thought Offset’s gesture is “cool and all.”
However, Paris explained that she has a bit of an issue with the question because she’s not “really like in the business of commenting on what other people do with their bodies because it’s none of my f—king business.”
As for why she decided to tell the story to her 4.2 million followers, the 25-year-old revealed that she wanted to get ahead of it before it became news. Fans were thrilled by her thoughts on the topic and how she handled the paparazzi.
One fan advised, “normalize beating the paparazzi to stuff 😂,” while another praised her for taking control, writing, “Taking back the power. It would have been some lame a– drama click bait.”
A similar sentiment read, “Love that you put it out there first so they won’t twist your words!” while another fan added, “Owning them but in a polite way!! ❤️❤️❤️.” This commenter praised the “let down” singer, writing, “Literally you are the coolest person on the planet” while another penned, “The coolest girl ever ❤️.”
Paris’ remark on Offset’s tattoo of her father comes two months after the internet was thrown into chaos after Cardi made an NSFW revelation about the inking. During a September appearance on Hot 97’s “Ebro In the Morning” show, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper revealed that the Michael Jackson tattoo turned her off in the bedroom.
“I really need you to see the Michael Jackson tattoo he got on his stomach. I don’t even want to take it there,” she lamented while holding back her laughter.
She explained that every time she tried to have adult time with her rapper husband, the sight of the huge inking discouraged her. “Y’all really have to see it because every time you know like,” she said while making a biting impression. “it just be looking at me.”

After Cardi shared the hilarious story, fans bombarded Offset with requests, asking him to show off the tattoo. In a Twitter post, the Migos member finally obliged and flaunted it, causing reactions from fans.
“If I was cardi I’d be creeped out looking at that too. Nonetheless, it’s dope,” remarked one follower, while another mocked, “I thought it was just a regular portrait of MJ this n—a got the werewolf version.”
Paris Jackson Slammed MJ Fans On Posthumous Birthday
Although Paris is having a fairly good interaction with her dad’s fanbase about the tattoo, that hasn’t always been the case for the American model.
Back in August when it was Michael’s 65th posthumous birthday, Paris revealed she was heavily criticized by his fans because she didn’t make a public social media post celebrating the milestone.
Explaining her reason for being silent, Paris said in a video recorded backstage, “Back when he was alive, he used to hate anybody acknowledging his birthday, wishing him a happy birthday, celebrating it, nothing like that.”
She continued, “If you don’t wish someone a happy birthday via social media, it apparently means that you don’t love them, you don’t care about them. There have been times where I don’t post anything for my dad’s birthday, and people lose their f–king minds. They tell me to kill myself.”
Paris concluded the emotional clip, “They’re basically measuring my love for my own father based off of what I post on Instagram.” While Paris didn’t publicly mark her dad’s posthumous birthday, her brother Prince Jackson dedicated a heartfelt tribute on Instagram.
“Happy birthday, dad. I miss you and love you. You may be gone but not forgotten. You’re in our hearts each and every [sic] day,” he wrote alongside a throwback photo from his childhood.
