Paris Jackson has publicly apologized for appearing on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Singapore, after it was pointed out that country still classifies it as illegal to be gay.
The 20-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson stars on the front of the September issue of the magazine, and proudly promoted the modeling gig on Instagram.
But when an LGBTQ news site pointed out that it’s a crime to be gay in Singapore, the model deleted the post and took to Twitter to say she was sorry.
‘I don’t want to be hypocritical or hurt anyone, and my support for my fellow LGBTQ+ community comes first before my love for fashion and gratitude for this opportunity. again, I’m sorry.’
Though she was quick to apologize, she also later followed up her tweet with a second, which seemed to backtrack a bit.
‘I would like to add though that someone that is openly a part of the community being on the cover in a country against the community, should be celebrated. Isn’t that a step forward? Again, I am deeply sorry. I didn’t mean to be hypocritical or hurt anyone,’ she wrote.
