The daughter of the late superstar responded on Twitter when asked her thoughts about Fiennes portraying her father in a British TV production.
“I’m so incredibly offended by it, as i’m sure plenty of people are as well, and it honestly makes me want to vomit,” she tweeted.
Fiennes stars with Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox as Marlon Brando in “Urban Myths,” a series of “Tru … ish” stories including a fabled one in which the three stars supposedly took a cross-country road trip together after 9/11. Paris Jackson said she also took offense at the portrayal of Taylor, a good friend of her father’s and her godmother.
The casting choice of Fiennes left some fans furious.
During a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jackson rejected the idea of a white actor portraying him.
