Paris Jackson has taken to Twitter to apologise after posting an Instagram story which referenced the death of baby Azaria Chamberlin.

The daughter of the King of Pop posted an image to her Instagram story which she captioned “a dingo ate my baby”.

Her post sparked outrage, with the lack of sensitivity and awareness to the death of baby Azaria Chamberlin.

The 19-year-old admitted she didn’t understand her reference, thinking it stemmed from a meme.

However, the phrase actually references one of the most infamous criminal cases in Australia’s history in which Lindy Chamberlin was wrongfully imprisoned over the death of her two-month-old daughter.

Ms Chamberlin was later released and compensated when a coroner ruled a dingo had killed Azaria.
