The "Chandelier" hitmaker took to Twitter on Tuesday (30Jun20) after an online petition protesting Michael Jackson's daughter's involvement in the production generated more than 260,000 signatures.
"Dear @ParisJackson I love you, keep going. I believe you are a good person," Sia posted.
Those behind the petition, which also targets the film's distributors Warner Bros. and Lionsgate, suggest that Jackson's Jesus Christ will be depicted as a "lesbian," though it is unclear where they sourced their information, and that the film will be "blasphemous." They also describe it as "Christianophobic garbage that is spread nowadays, but is somehow accepted and praised by society."
Habit has also drawn controversy from bosses at the organisation One Million Moms, who have started their own petition, calling the film "sacrilegious" and alleging it "mocks Christianity and ridicules people of faith."
