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.
If it hurts to be on Facebook, it's best to delete. If anything lowers your self esteem, delete and walk away.
If this child had some caring adults in her life, she would be better off. The Jacksons are treating her like a paycheck instead of loving her.
Powerless to do anything?? She is a child, it's the adults in her life's 'JOB' to keep her safe, and sometimes that means not just from others but themselves. They can and do have the power to shut that page down. I have a friend with a 15 year old that is having some issues and she not hesitate to troll her Facebook page, log in and review activity or shut it down as needed. Her child knows that privacy at this age is a privilege ...not a right. If she's being exposed to or engaged in dangerous behavior, she's going to protect her. 'Jackson family'...step up, do what you have to, love her and hold on to her as she struggles until she's strong enough to stand again. Love tough if you must, but do it. It could mean the difference between life or death. Love Paris as she go through this difficult time.
Witchy is really pissed off: HeHe
