Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, is now on the list of those who are not fans of Joseph Fiennes playing her late father in a new British TV production.

Paris responded via Twitter when asked for her opinion on Fiennes portraying her father in the sketchy-looking show.

“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 will be starring, alongside Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox as Marlon Brando, in Urban Myths, which is a series of “tru…ish” stories about some of the world’s biggest celebrities and events.

This story will also include the three characters taking a cross-country road trip together after the occurrence of 9/11. 
Paris didn’t only take offense to Fiennes playing her dad, she was also upset about the portrayal of Taylor, who was her father’s friend, as well as her godmother.
“It angers me to see how obviously intentional it was for them to be this insulting, not just towards my father, but my godmother liz as well,” Jackson tweeted.
“Where is the respect,” she added. “They worked through blood sweat and tears for ages to create such profound and remarkable legacies. Shameful portrayal.”
The casting of Fiennes did seem to leave some fans furious and, ironically, during a 1993 interview with Oprah Winfrey, the late Jackson did reject the idea of any white actors ever portraying him on the big or small screen.
