Paris Jackson defended her father Wednesday following the release of "Leaving Neverland," the explosive documentary that accuses him of molesting young boys.

The 20-year-old didn't reference the documentary by name, but appeared to share her thoughts as she responded to fans on Twitter.

In response to one, she wrote, "Do you really think that it’s possible to tear his name down ? like do you truly believe they stand a chance ? relax and have peace."

Also Wednesday, Paris covered her face as she appeared in public following the documentary's release. She pulled a knitted hat over her face and then placed her glasses on top as she arrived at Los Angeles airport with her boyfriend, musician Gabriel Glenn. She removed the hat from her face before reaching the TSA.

The masked look was a tactic used by her father, Michael Jackson, when she and her brothers were young in an attempt to shield them from paparazzi.

Paris was just 11 when her dad passed away in 2009.

Both men in "Leaving Neverland" defended Michael in the past, with accused Wade Robson giving key testimony at Michael's criminal trial in 2005 and insisting that Jackson never molested him. Michael was acquitted of sexual abuse in the 2005 case.

They said they are now speaking out after coming to terms with Michael's alleged abuse.

Jackson family attorney Howard Weitzman spoke with “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King Monday morning. 

"These accusations are made by two people who have testified differently under oath. The way I judge credibility is, 'Have these people lied before?' The answer is yes!" he said.
