(Newser) – Michael Jackson's daughter has broken her silence on the Leaving Neverland documentary, and she seems largely untroubled by allegations that her father sexually abused two boys. "Smoke some weed n think about the bigger picture. chillax my dudes," Paris Jackson advised followers in a tweet Thursday. When a follower told her that her father's legacy was being ruined, she said the bigger picture was "love and peace," not "tabloids and lies," E! Online reports. "Yeah they do that to everyone with a good heart and tries to make a dfference but do you really think that it’s possible to tear his name down?" she said, continuing, "like do you truly believe they stand a chance? relax and have peace."

Sources tell People that Paris Jackson is determined to stand by her father, but hasn't actually seen the explosive HBO documentary. Another Jackson defender, however, has changed their tune. After earlier slamming Leaving Neverland as one-sided, Corey Feldman told CNN that he could no longer defend Jackson or anybody else accused of "horrendous crimes," EW reports. He said that as a friend of the singer's and a victim of sexual abuse, he is not a good person to "be the judge in this situation." Feldman said he had watched the first part of the documentary, but it was too painful to watch the second. He later tweeted that his heart is with the victims, and with Jackson's children, who "ALSO R VICTIMS N ALL OF THIS." (The Simpsons has pulled its Michael Jackson episode.)
