Model and
daughter to the late Michael Jackson, Paris Jackson, made headlines last week
when she 'stormed out' of a Dior fashion show on the grounds of animal cruelty.

Animal use

The fashion show was reportedly inspired my 'Mexican
rodeo' and as such used animals for entertainment.

According
to Jackson, she left the event because she does 'not support animals being
branded and whipped'.

Speaking to
People
an inside source said: "She was uncomfortable with how the horses were
being handled (the whipping sound was loud) so she quietly slipped out."

'Heartbroken'

Jackson
took to Twitter to explain that she was 'heartbroken' by what she'd seen at the
show although she does not intend to make 'enemies' in the fashion world.

She added
that she has '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' - a shift
she says everyone should 'be very excited about'.
