Here’s something awesome: 13-year-old Paris Jackson recently became the first girl member of her L.A. private school’s flag football team. Here’s something awful: the despicable organization that is the Lingerie Football League is attempting to recruit Michael Jackson‘s barely-teenage daughter. While she can’t play for the league until she turns 18, the FNL wants her right now as a spokesperson for their youth program. Which is something that exists.
A spokesperson for the league wrote a letter to Paris stating the following:
“We … would like to invite Paris to become the spokesperson for the LFL’s youth program and perhaps start training for a future football career in the LFL when she reaches the age of 18.”
If you’re not fully aware of what the Lingerie Football League is, let me illuminate things for you. The organization is a 7-on-7 women’s tackle football league, where the women play clad in bras, undies and shoulder pads. Their tagline is, “True fantasy football.” The players look like this:
And what’s the youth program? It doesn’t appear to be anything, according to the search I just did of the LFL’s website, but the letter sent to Paris indicates that they’ll be starting the program soon, as a way to “bring football to young ladies at an earlier stage in life.”
Hey, Lingerie Football League? You’re disgusting. Can’t you let a 13-year-old girl enjoy playing sports without turning it into a sex thing? Good luck with that youth program, though!
