Well, this is disheartening.

Disheartening, disappointing, distressing … the list goes on and on.

Name any bad, negative emotion, any one at all, and odds are we’ve felt it today.

As you’ve surely heard time and time again by now, in the news and on the radio and all over the internet and even in your own nightmares, Donald Trump will be our next president.

So many Americans — the majority of them, if the popular vote is anything to go by — are devastated by this, and for good reason.

And one of those devastated Americans is none other than Paris Jackson.

Paris is Michael Jackson’s oldest child, and she’s used social media to make it clear that she’s not feeling Trump in any way, shape or form.

Last night, she tweeted “I’m genuinely very terrified for all femals, lgbtq+, and immigrants.”

“The fact that most of us don’t feel safe anymore is beyond alarming.”

Isn’t it though?

She also wrote that there’s “not enough love in this country to make Trump melt like the wicked witch of the west.”

She added “Raise your hand if you have a genuinely insuppressible feeling of impending doom surging through your entire body.”

Everything she said there made perfect sense, and her words pretty accurately represent how a lot of us are feeling today.

But she also tweeted this very alarming drawing of a man looking thoughtfully at a noose:

And we are officially worried about her.

In June of 2013, Paris actually attempted suicide by taking several Motrins and cutting herself with a meat cleaver.

She’d called a suicide hotline, and the operator was able to get EMTs to Paris quick enough to take her to a hospital, where she received “numerous stitches” and was placed on a 72 hour psychiatric hold.

After that, Paris spent several months at a treatment facility, and she stayed off social media for two years.

Then, just a couple of months ago, Paris seemed to be getting back to a bad place when she shared an extremely emotional video on Instagram.

“I don’t understand how there can be so much hatred in the world right now,” she cried in the video.

“When I was 14 I got so much hatred that I tried to kill myself and I took, like, a two-year break from social media and then people asked me to come back, to make my Instagram public again, so I did. And nothing changed!”

She deleted the video after getting some very undeserved backlash for it.

“Looks like I’m the villain now,” she wrote afterwards. “Didn’t know defending myself was a crime. My dearest apologies. Guess my career’s over lolol.”

Between social media bullies and a remarkably disappointing new president to look forward to, it sounds like Paris isn’t doing too great.

Best of wishes to her. It sure is hard out there.
