AceShowbiz - %cParis Jackson% got political at her first MTV VMAs. The model daughter of the late %cMichael Jackson% presented the award for Best Pop Video at this year's award show held on Sunday night, August 27 at The Forum in Inglewood, California, but not before addressing the country's current political climate.
Paris took the stage and grabbed a mic to deliver a powerful speech. "You know, if we were all to put our voices together, do you know the difference we could make? If we were to stand up all united as one, our impact it would be 'yuge.' It would be 'yuge.' Believe me, 'yuge.' And that's not fake news," she said while impersonating President %cDonald Trump%.
"So, let's leave here tonight remembering that we must show these Nazi, white supremacist jerks in Charlottesville and all over the country," the 19-year-old model and actress continued. "We have zero tolerance for their violence, their hatred and their discrimination," she added, before concluding her moving speech, "We must resist."
Paris changed her tune from forceful to light when introducing the nominations for Best Pop Video. The Moon Person went to %cFifth Harmony% for the music video of their song "Down" featuring %cGucci Mane%.

Paris delivering her passionate speech comes just weeks after a violent white supremacist rally resulted in the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer. Heather was killed during the protest when a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of pedestrians. Her mother was present at this year's VMAs in Heather's honor.
In the wake of the violence, Trump said that "bigotry and hatred" was coming from "many sides," not the white supremacists. POTUS tried to change his tune after days of backlash, specifically naming the hate groups as he condemned racism. But he continued blaming "both sides" and referred to counter-protesters as the "alt-left" in a later news conference.
