Paris Jackson has insisted that she didn’t “storm out” of Dior’s fashion show recently, but left quietly because she was “heartbroken” over how they allegedly treated the horses.
The 20-year-old was one of the famous faces at the fashion house’s Spring/Summer 2019 Cruise Collection presentation at the Chantilly Stables in France on Friday (25May18), where some of the models rode side-saddle on horses.
Some reports emerged from the show suggesting Paris “huffed out barefoot” and “stalked out in a rage” as the first model appeared on the runway, and Paris addressed the speculation on Twitter on Tuesday night (29May18).
“To be clear, i did not ‘storm out’ of the show,” she wrote. “I quietly got up and walked out trying my hardest to not cause a scene, because i do not support animals being branded and whipped. not trying to become enemies in the fashion world in any way, but i will always be myself.
“Furthermore, i was not ‘enraged,’ just taken by surprise and a little heartbroken. and i have no doubt that all high end fashion brands will soon switch over to no-fur and anti animal cruelty, as that seems to be the pattern here. and we should all be very excited about that!”
Michael Jackson’s daughter had previously confirmed she left the show early by sharing a picture on Instagram of herself standing outside the venue looking up to the sky as it rained, while wearing the multi-coloured printed dress and black leather bag with a rainbow-striped strap that she posed in before the presentation. However, she had removed her red heels and was stood in the rain barefoot.
Paris, who reportedly follows a cruelty-free diet and uses her social media presence to campaign for animal welfare, wrote in the caption, “left early n did this,” with a storm emoji.
