Paris Jackson has slammed critics for "harassing" her for not paying tribute to her late father on Father's Day.

The 18-year-old - who is the daughter of Michael Jackson - has taken to social media to defend herself for not posting a loving message to the Thriller hitmaker, who died in 2009 aged 50 of acute Propofol intoxication, on social media to commemorate the annual holiday.

The aspiring actress - who is the daughter of Debbie Rowe - vented her anger on Twitter on Monday, writing: "if you try to harass someone into posting online about a holiday (fathers day), ask yourself if it's any of your business (sic)."

And Paris - who was 11-years-old when Michael passed away - believes her recent tattoo, which is a replica of her father's Dangerous album cover and features Michael's eyes, a crown, elephants, monkeys and a peacock, as well as the etching on her left wrist, which reads Queen of My Heart in the late King of Pop's handwriting, is a better way to honour her parent rather than a "stupid" singular post on social media.

She continued: "having 8 tattoos dedicated to someone overrules a single post about them on a stupid social media acc because of a holiday. #justmyopinion (sic)."

Paris, who has totted up an impressive 23 inkings on her body, previously shared a photograph of her second permanent tribute to Michael on Instagram, alongside a quote from her father's 1992 book of poems and reflections, entitled Dancing the Dream.

She penned: "'The meaning of life is contained in every single expression of life. It is present in the infinity of forms and phenomena that exist in all of creation.' Never forget your roots, and always be proud of where you came from.(sic)"

Paris had long spoken of her desire to have a tattoo tribute to her father, who was born on August 29, 1958.

Back in 2011, she tweeted: "I kinda want to get August XXIX tatted on my back (sic)."
