Paris Jackson must be so over social media after the latest completely crazy comments about her father

Michael Jackson's death was felt by a lot of people, but it's unlikely that anyone was more affected by his passing than his children, Paris, Prince and Blanket —which is why this latest obsession with one of Paris Jackson's Instagram photos is so unfair.

For some reason, the internet thinks that Michael is still alive, and they feel that a post Paris made six months ago is proof. The photo in question is a selfie, which shows Paris in the front seat of a car, with a mysterious-looking shadow (which could easily be a pile of clothes, a backpack and a hat or even a person) and it has fans convinced that it's Michael — and they've bombarded the post with comments saying as much.

"Michael Jackson is in the car @parisjackson," giuliaculatti_lpfc74 commented. Raphaelia_lia agreed, writing, "Micharl [sic] Jackson is alive!"

While the comment section of the post is littered with people saying Michael is in the back seat of the car, there are also people who think it's absolutely absurd, and have been quick to slam those who are propelling the rumors.

"You're all being so pathetic," goulden.times wrote. "Michael Jackson is not in that photo I don't know what it is but it's not Michael."

"Why does everyone think it's Micheal? He is dead. For 7 years already," mijn_naamismaartje commented, adding, "stop the drama."

While flores_fotography noted how damaging comments such as the aforementioned can be. They wrote, "This isn't funny. People need to stop it. R.i.p michael!"

Is it not a lot more likely that the shadowy figure in the background is either a person (other than Michael Jackson), or a pile of clothes? Rather than believing that everyone close to Michael deliberately created a massive ruse just to trick the general public? C'mon people!
