Michael Jackson's daughter 'wanted to vomit' after seeing this actor play her dad

Paris Jackson is clearly not okay with Joseph Fiennes' portrayal of the iconic musician.

When it was announced English actor Joseph Fiennes was going to play Michael Jackson in a new TV series, many people were shocked.
Now, Jackson's daughter Paris has spoken out about the "offensive" performance.
“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,” the 18-year-old tweeted.
Originally a TV film titles Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon, the show has now been folded into Urban Myths: A Brand New Collection of Comedies, telling "true...ish pop culture stories about favourite celebrities".
The half-hour episode tells the story of how Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Jackson and Marlon Brando fled Manhattan after September 11 in a rental car en route to Boston, and will screen in the UK later this year.
Fiennes, who starred in Shakespeare In Love defended the casting decision when the news was first announced, claiming Michael's skin color “probably [became] closer to my color than his original color".
In an interview with Oprah in 1993, Jackson said the idea of a white man playing him in a biopic would be "horrifying".
