Paris Jackson: Facebook Destroyed Her
TMZ ^ | 6/26/2013

Posted on 06/26/2013 11:51:04 AM PDT by iowamark

Paris Jackson's deep depression has been largely the result of bullying ... and Facebook has been hosting the haters.

Sources closely connected to Paris tell TMZ ... the 15-year-old has been reeling from comments left on her Facebook page --- many about Michael Jackson and his lifestyle. Some of the comments involve the various molestation allegations ... others involve the odd life Paris lived while Michael was alive.

We're told Paris has taken the comments very personally ... and one source says, "They destroyed her." The source adds, there's a nexus between the bullying and her penchant for cutting.

Now here's the problem. Paris does not have access to her Facebook page while she's in the psych ward at UCLA Medical Center. But her family is deeply concerned that she'll backslide if she goes back on Facebook when she gets out.

The family is extremely frustrated, because they've tried to shut down Paris' Facebook page, but they can't --- Facebook's policy is that the family of a user has no right to shut down an account if the user is 13 years of age or older.

Paris' family believes Facebook could create yet another tragedy in the Jackson family, but they're powerless to do anything about it.

Having a pedophile for a “Dad” probably did more to destroy her.

Facebook is proving to be a bigger problem than anyone expected. A majority of reported bullying cases are coming from social media, specifically Facebook. That should say something.

Michael Jackson's kid is messed up? Well, knock me over with a feather!

I know! Let's blame total strangers for this sad and unexpected turn of events!

Kids are susceptible to peer pressure, and Facebook is the ultimate pressure-amplifier. It preys on the need so many have to be noticed, to be popular and “liked” but has the potential to do just the opposite.

Everything in life has risk, but parents let kids treat Facebook as a toy when they’d never do the same with other potentially dangerous things. How much parental responsibility was shown by her father or current guardian is anyones guess.

So the parents can’t shut it down because she’s over 13. OK, and she can’t shut it down herself because ....?

Run your own DNS at home:

A facebook.com 127.0.0.1

It’s not perfect, but it’s a good start.

Being a fifteen year old girl is already a mental illness. Compound that with who her father was. And then amplify that through Facebook and internet trolls.

It was only a matter of time before her baggage train derailed.

You can do that by editing the /etc/hosts file.

I believe in Windows it’s C:/Windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts.

Then add an entry facebook.com 127.0.0.1

I'd like to see a DNA test to confirm the pedophile is the natural father.

I wouldn't be surprised if the pedophile simply paid both donors and he "bought" his victims children.

My first thought was that she should have chosen her “friends” more carefully. I have friend request all the time but if I do not know them, forget it. No one can post on her page without her approval. She can also delete anyone she wants. In fact, I deleted a dem who was very critical of conservatives. I knew her from school. If they were sending messages directly, don’t read them. Everyone can be a victim if they want to be one. I do not want to be one so I am careful both on the Internet and when I go out. I am aware of my surroundings. I am blessed that most of my friends are Christian Conservatives. Others do not say. The Internet can be wonderful but it can be a pain, too. It is up to the user.

I am deeply sympathetic to this poor child — and she is a child. Her existence was commissioned by freaky Michael Jackson, who used donor sperm and paid the girl's biomom to go away. She was raised without a mother or a real — meaning masculine — father in about the strangest environment you could imagine. I don't think we should criticize her when she is so obviously and understandably suffering.

Doing that would only prevent her from accessing facebook on that specific computer.

While that's good, it wouldn't keep her from accessing facebook from any other computer that doesn't have that hosts file entry in it. I was thinking more along the lines of her parents ensuring/insisting that she delete her facebook page herself since they can't do it for her. (Maybe I'm just too old school in thinking that parents can actually exert some control over their kids.)

I don’t care what anyone says, there is no way that alabaster skinned, blonde haired, blue eyed Parisand (and sibblings) is MJ’s daughter.
Looks more like the chauffeur, if you ask me.

Sociopaths. They get pleasure from causing other people pain. They used to have limitations on how much pain they could cause because people used to have “waking hours” and times when they were not available. Now, with the Internet, sociopaths can have alot of fun damaging people for sport 24 hours a day. Some gather in sociopathic online communities and brag of the damage they do and give it a rating (lulz) so to speak so they can compete with others damaging innocent people. FOr example, they log onto remembrance pages made available to the public for the purpose of leaving a comment for a bereaved family regarding their loved one who died. For example, high-value lulz would include the subhuman individuals who logged onto a remembrance site for a teen who committed suicide and wrote things like “It’s just as well he died, everyone hated him anyway.” Then - those paramecium go back to the online community and provide links so their competitors can evaluate the lulz ‘earned’ etc. Sociopaths used to be 4% of the population but I fear it is growing rapidly.

The easier it is to communicate with people the easier it is to be a jackass to people. Used to be if you wanted to hang out with your friends and say bad things about celebrities the most public you’d get with it is having the discussion in a bar, maybe a dozen people hear you talk, and said celebrities never find out about it. Now you post it on your FB wall, or Twitter, or even their wall, and millions, including the target of your derision, hear it. As always the problem isn’t with the tool, it’s with the people using it.

She seems like she could be an okay kid. If she were five years older I’d try to match her up with Ben Jr.

God help this innocent girl. There aren’t going to be many on this earth who can understand what she’s gone through, and is going through. I hope she gets every bit of support she can get from kind souls out there.

Jerry Springer is only on for an hour, as are the Kardashians. That leaves 22 for sleeping, drinking, smoking grass, and annoying Ms. Jackson.

I don't know what you found to be so unsympathetic or critical in my post.

The girl is obviously very disturbed by posts being made on her facebook page. The simplest and most effective approach to solve that problem is to take the page down. Since her family can't do that for her, it's up to her to take the page down herself.

I didn't think you were being unsympathetic, just that you were expecting rational behavior from someone I suspect is not capable of behaving rationally, e.g., by taking down her facebook page. I think she's too disturbed to understand that she must do that, or to be disciplined enough to do that. Her upbringing is one of the freakiest I've ever read about.

That's the point where the parent/guardian needs to step in to ensure that the rational actions are taken, regardless whether she wants them to be taken or not. Parents doing this sort of thing used to be the norm, apparently not so much nowadays.

Her upbringing is one of the freakiest I've ever read about.

I couldn't agree with you more on that point. No question whatsoever about that in my mind.
