Yesterday, the Internet lost its shit after 20-year-old actor Moises Arias posted a shirtless photo of himself on a bed with 13-year-old Willow Smith to his Instagram then quickly deleted it presumably after hearing the words, “Take a seat right over there,” whispered from the shadows. (Although, Page Six points out it’s still on his Tumblr with the caption “Simba and Nala 2014,” so yeah…) Now normally this story would’ve died sometime late afternoon, but if there’s one thing Will Smith and his wife can’t help, it’s saying remarkably stupid shit about how they raise their universally advanced brain-children which just gave this story even more legs instead of being forgotten at the next celebrity crotch shot. So here’s the first reaction given to TMZ by a “family source” before we get to Jada Pinkett Smith straight going off on the paparazzi:
Sources connected to the Smith family tell TMZ … Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith believe their daughter is “very mature” … enough so to make her own decisions, as long as they don’t clearly cross the line.
Will and Jada view the now-famous photo of Willow in bed with 20-year-old “Hannah Montana” star Moises Arias as innocent fun … an expression of art.
Translation: “Your 13-year-old daughter might not be able to be mature enough to be left unsupervised in a bedroom with a shirtless 20-year-old man, but ours is imbued with superior galactic knowledge via transcendental space beams, so eat a dick.” Which would’ve been bad enough, but here’s Jada going off on the paparazzi and literally calling anyone who sees any sexual context here a pedophile. Via Us Weekly:
“Here’s the deal,” Pinkett-Smith told paparazzi as she arrived at LAX. “There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation.”
“You guys are projecting your trash onto it,” she continued to the photographers. “You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”
I’ll just say what we’re all thinking here: They better name the first kid Carlton. For real.
