Will Smith and Jada Pinkett: DO BETTER

If this photo of Willow Smith -- 13-year-old, definitely still a child Willow Smith -- hanging out in bed with 20-year-old half-naked 20-year-old Moises Arias of "Hannah Montana" fame doesn't gross you out, then frankly, you're doing something wrong. This is horrendously inappropriate, and that's putting it nicely. There is absolutely no reason in the world why this photo ever should have happened, and the fact that it did is nothing short of tragic. But you know what? Willow's parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, are totally, 100% cool with it.

Apparently, Willow and Moises here go way back: they've been close friends for a long time. So they probably hung out when Moises was 19 and Willow was 12, and when Moises was 18 and Willow was 11 ... you get the creepy picture. And this has always been fine with Willow's parents because they feel like Willow is totally mature enough to do basically whatever she wants. And that obviously includes inviting, for whatever reason, a 20-year-old shirtless adult man to lie with her in a bed, and that is awful.

Why is it so hard to just take care of your children? In what universe should any 13-year-old be granted the ability to make all of her own decisions? Maturity varies from child to child, of course, but that's the whole point: she's still, regardless of anything, a child. And this is simply unacceptable.

So, hey, Will and Jada, do you think you could do your children a favor and actually parent them? Maybe just a little. At least enough so that they won't be subjected to atrocities like this.

STFU Emily. You probably aren't a parent so don't act like you're any better.

It looks like two friends sitting there watching tv. Get over it. Half naked? I think not. Get real. Would it be any different if they were sitting on a couch? Or perhaps hanging out at the beach? The kid could be like a big brother to her. You don't know.

Please get a real job because you suck at your current one.

You know what? Why are you people so concerned with this child!? Is she your child? Why don't you focus this much media attention on the 300 kidnapped Nigerian girls. He has been friends with Jaden since they were both very very young. They basically grew up together. There is nothing and absolutely nothing sexual about the pic. They aren't touching or looking at each other. The original pic was cropped out. And you can clearly see that they are looking at a tv/ other ppl by the way they are looking. Stop stretching and making it into something it really isn't. What's creepy is your sick minds trying to make a story out of nothing!

First off, they aren't in the room alone. It has been reported that a mutual friend took the picture of them & it's pretty obvious too! When I was younger & hanging out with friends, we would all pile in a room & watch tv/ movies. Sometimes that room would be in a bedroom. Big deal! Seems to me everyone is jumping to conclusions. This guy has been reported as her brothers best friend. Was he there too? We don't know. There doesn't appear to be any touching or anything physical in this picture. Why is everyone so quick to judge? Best thing for her parents to do if they are okay with her hanging out with older people especially family friends who happen to be guys, is to tell her to keep pictures private. Social media really isn't for young people!

People like me would be thinking what a perverted man who could face charges as a sexual predator. What is Will & Jada thinking.

Something is very wrong with a 20 year old MAN who wants to hang out with a 13 year old girl. The Smiths and Jenners should be locked up, they are useless parents. Their children are uneducated, spoiled, undisciplined. CPS should be called but they won't be.

Half naked? Sorry but men and boys are more often than not shirtless in warm weather, they live in CA no? To you go to the beach and freak out about all the half naked men? And if there are more people in the room, if these kids grew up together, have been friends since before this guy hit 20, before hormones were even a thought then there is nothing to be freaking out about. Or am I the only one who had friends with older sisters and brothers, who had older friends, and we all grew up around each other, saw each other and hung out in the same house together. It doesn't mean something sexual or predatory is going on. People calling this kid a perv are the sick ones if you brain goes right to sex when looking at that picture vs not having a clue how long he's been a friend to her and her brother. This whole thing is really getting blown out of proportion.

who the hell are you to condemn what the hell you know nothing about? It's perverted minds that see everything as perverted & gross are screwing with our children's sense of well being. Where is the innocence & normalcy of friends of many years hanging out? Emily you need a reality check, like immediately book a session with a therapist to release some of that filth you have going on in your head. Better yet, put down the effing computer.

What if they were at a pool, and she was next to him topless? Is that gross? Put them on a bed, watching TV, and suddenly it's perverse? Maybe those who find this perverted are the ones with the problem.

Emily, I do suggest you make an appointment immediately with a therapist to work through some of your deep seeded issues. You puke words for a frivolous, hateful gossip site and see only the perverted, destructive, twisted side to everything. It's not cute, actuality for an adult, it's quite alarming. I wish you the best in re-evaluating your purpose on this earth. namaste

Wouldn't be surprised if she started having sex at age 10, she behaves right now like she's in her 20's. I feel sorry for Will's kid's not having decent parents that know the word NO. Kids need boundaries, Willow and Jaden were never given any, they also have nothing to look forward to. They've had everything the world over since they were born, they seem bored, nothing to look forward too they've done it all already, wouldn't be surprised if drugs is next, wouldn't surprise me, I think they're numb to life already.

I really hope that all the idiots on here defending this pic are not parents. This photo is wrong. Its not for a photoshoot like one dumbass said, and their not at the beach like some other idiots want to rationalize. They're IN BED. I don't care how long they knew each other, 20 yr olds shouldn't be hanging out with 13 yr olds in any universe. I agree that most of what the author writes is crap, but with this she's spot on

Emily Trainham,

You're an atrocity for using Lohan in an attempt to make a sincerely snarly and uncalled for unfounded point. You're a bitch, Emily.

Parenting is up to the parents. Lohan is an adult. The Smith's kids aren't. Keep your own glassware safe before you knock over other's in a declaration that theirs are weak.

How'd you get your job? What the hell do you contribute - really - to a sincere story? Your choice of words and conclusions are just gross. Your opinion is yours - you're getting paid for it. Maybe you just have thick lips and a nice ass.

Moises is also Jaden's friend. They have all known each for years. Obviously, they knew lots of people would be outraged and they wanted attention. Willow and Jaden's friendships with Kendall and Kylie Jenner are way more troubling and damage inducing than a shirtless Moises Arias.

my only question... what the hell does a grown man need barely teen friends for? She's just starting to go through puberty... a 13 and 20 year old should have little in common. I mean, Will Smith says this 20 year old is best friends with his 15 year old son... if you are out of high school, as long as you're not Doogie Howser, and some 13 year old prodigy... you need to not be hanging with middle school and high school age kids.
