The internet can be a cruel mistress and sometimes even the biggest names in the business feel the burn.
Months after a controversial image featuring 13-year-old Willow Smith sprawled across a bed with 20-year-old actor Moises Arias surfaced, the Smith's have finally been cleared by CPS.
The internet exploded into outrage after Arias posted the image on his Instagram account with people labelling the image a 'perverted' and questioning why the former Hannah Montana actor was bare-chested.
After widespread whispering about the way the Smith family were raising their kids, CPS stepped in to investigate the family and ensure that Willow and Jaden were being adequately cared for.
Now the investigation is over. Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services have cleared Jada Pinkett Smith and husband of any wrongdoing, and Jada has spoken out to the press. She warned journalists;
Just don’t pollute something that’s not dirty
Before going on a bizarre tangent that totally veers from discussing the appropriateness of a young girl being photographed in bed with a grown man. Instead, Jada chose to view the CPS investigation as an attack on women. She went on to say;
It’s really tough. I feel like the connection to the value of women on a bigger scale has decreased tremendously. Even though you look and go, ‘Women have so many opportunities,’ it’s like, ‘Yeah, but at what cost? Are women valued for being women, or are women valued when they have more masculine qualities?Men and women encompass both female and masculine energies, but it seems like when the feminine is present, it’s not respected
Yep, I don't really get what that has to do with anything either, but Jada did spawn the great Twitter philosopher Jaden Smith, so what do you expect?
Pinkett Smith ended her speech with a sentiment that all parents will echo before cautioning adults on projecting their own issues onto innocent kids. She explained that;
I want my kids to be happy and I want them to be themselves. I was saying to a friend the other day, ‘Remember, our kids are not us.’ They’re not. Sometimes we’re trying to fix things that happened to us or projecting [onto them], and that’s a terrible, terrible trap.
Do you think the Smiths deserved to be investigated by CPS?
