More than a quarter of a million people want to stop Paris Jackson from playing Jesus.
According to the press release, the film follows “a street smart, party girl with a Jesus fetish [who] gets mixed up in a violent drug deal and finds a possible way out; by masquerading as a nun.”
The petition against the film calls it ” blasphemous” and “Christianophobic garbage.” ET has reached out to reps for Jackson and Thorne.
In response to the petition, Thorne took to her Instagram Story to share another user’s post, writing, “Because Jesus is a woman… wowowowowowo”
Additionally, singer Sia showed her support for both Jackson and the film, writing, “Dear @ParisJackson I love you, keep going. I believe you are a good person. 😊”
