Being a teenager is difficult, but it's that much harder when you're in the public eye.

Paris Jackson, the 17-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson, took to Instagram to speak out about the "ridiculous" expectations and pressures she faces because of her famous dad. 

"It's so f**king selfish that I am literally attacked on every f**king thing I post just because people that I DON'T EVEN KNOW aren't getting what they want," Paris reportedly wrote in a now deleted comment. "I appreciate the love and support, but the expectations are f**king ridiculous."

The teenager also expressed her sadness at the constant criticism her late father also faced. 

"The expectations for my DAD were f**king ridiculous. He didn't owe you anything, yet he was ripped to shreds DAILY. I will not let that happen to me," she wrote.

Of course, Paris is far from the only young woman in the spotlight to open up about the backlash she faces online. "Modern Family" actress Ariel Winter has openly spoken about the criticism she has to deal with on social media platforms and how incredibly hurtful it can be.

"We live in a day and age where everything you do is ridiculed," Winter said to Glamour Magazine. "The Internet bullies are awful. I could post a photo where I feel good, and 500 people will comment about how fat I am and that I am disgusting."
