Keep scrolling to find out why the movie has been slammed and what Paris has had to say about it...

Paris Jackson is an American model, actress, and musician...

And she is also the only daughter of the late Michael Jackson.

Of course, we're all more than aware of the controversy surrounding Michael Jackson...

But this hasn't stopped Paris from building a successful life and career for herself.

She was born in 1998...

And her name comes from the French capital in which she was conceived by Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe. She was raised solely by her father and during her childhood, she and her siblings - Michael Jr and Prince - often wore masks during public outings with their father to hide their faces from the public.

Paris was only 9-years-old when her father passed away...

Which left her in the custody of her grandmother, Katherine. She and her siblings then went on to study at a private school in California.

But the death of her father clearly had a long-lasting effect...

At the age of fifteen, she had been an intravenous drug addict and had attempted suicide several times. She was then sent to a therapeutic school in Utah, where she spent her sophomore and junior years of high school, and which she credits with helping her overcome depression.

In 2017, Paris signed her first modeling contract...

And she started to make a reappearance in the public eye which garnered a lot of attention.

A year later, the model made her film debut in <em>Gringo</em>...

And she and musician/singer Gabriel Glenn formed a musical duo called The Soundflowers and performed their first gig at Canyon Sessions on June 23, 2018, with original songs "Daisy" and "In the Blue."

And now, Paris is set to star in the upcoming movie, <em>Habit.</em>

It also stars Bella Thorne and Gavin Rossdale. According to a press release, the film is about "a street smart, party girl with a Jesus fetish" who gets mixed up in a violent drug deal and finds a possible way out by masquerading as a nun.

Paris will be taking on the role of Jesus...

And it turns out that a lot of people have a big problem with this.

The upcoming production has been described as "Christianaphobic garbage"...

A petition was even started in an effort to prevent the distribution of the movie.

Many feel that the movie is disrespectful towards the Christianity faith...

And it has been accused of mocking the beliefs of Christians.

Many people have expressed that Paris isn't right for the role...

And they have been questioning as to whose decision it was to cast her as Jesus... out of all people!

But among the hate, comes the love.

Many feel uplifted by Paris' new role and are feeling liberated and justified by the movie.

One of those people who feels uplifted by Paris' role is Sia.

The Australian singer reached out to Paris to show her love and support.

As harmless as this seems...

Fans weren't impressed and they slammed the singer for supporting Paris' new venture considering she openly slammed Michael Jackson.

MJ fans were out in full force...

And they accused Sia of double standards and representing herself badly on social media.

Sia fully supported Leaving Neverland...


And fans weren't afraid to remind the singer of that.

Sia decided to speak up following the criticism...

And she asked her followers to stop attacking Paris and to please attack her instead... which is rather confusing as the majority of the heat was being turned on Sia anyway!

This just seemed to pour fuel on the flames...

And people angrily reminded Sia of her past with the person who stalked and harrassed Paris a few years ago.

The singer has been branded as "a snake"...

And it's safe to say people aren't loving Sia at the moment... especially Michael Jackson fans.

Now, Paris has broken her silence on the controversy.

The star took to Instagram to share a cryptic message with fans.

Here's what she wrote:

"One day i hope we can all learn from this little guy right here and navigate the darkest of nights with such grace."

She also limited the comments on the post.


Seemingly as a way to stop any further hate.

​But it seems the controversy is far from over. 


​As now over 370,000 people have signed the petition to block the movie. Yikes.
