The internet couldn’t help but react to Jaden Smith’s comments on socializing more with adults than people his own age during a 2018 interview that resurfaced recently. The rapper and actor said his parents, Will and Jada, would put him at the head of the table while they had in-depth meetings about their next film roles. “From a young age, always being around that, always seeing that, I am very happy that I spent my childhood with more adults than I did with kids my own age because I was picking up more things from adults than I was from kids my own age.”
Jaden was trolled on Twitter for what he said next in the April 9 video saying, “I look and I go around sometimes and I hang out with other people that are my age and they’re kind of just,” the 23-year-old then made mocking noises and flailed his arms about. “I’m just like, dude, oh my god. Can we talk about the political and economic state of the world right now? Can we talk about what’s going on with the environment? Can we talk about other things?”
Though the actor clarified, “Don’t worry! I like to play, I like to play songs loud and jump in the crowd in Atlanta, but I’m always looking for the next thing. I’m not satisfied at just a party,” Twitter trolled the “Icon” singer about his statement.
