Terry McMillan tweeted that she felt the the Smith children, Jaden and Willow Smith, are being pimped and exploited. Apparently, someone must have put in a phone call because now Terry is retracting her tweets and apologizing… SMH! Granted, no one should ever speak on other people’s children but dayyumm… What happen to the first amendment???
I apologize for using the word pimp and exploit in referring to the Smith children. It was insensitive of me and wrong. Twitter is not the best forum to express some things. I didn’t know folks would take my opinion so personally. It is amazing, though, how fast an unflattering comment gets retweeted versus one that’s flattering. I’m done with this issue. My opinion isn’t going to change anything.
There are a lot more important things going on in the world right now. My Mama used to say: “They’ll talk about you if you do. And talk about you if you don’t. Let ‘em talk.” Some folks look for a reason to criticize you. They’re getting off on it and are saying much worse things than I did. I’ve got work to do. I hope everybody who has something important to do today besides worry about the Smith children, does it.
And for those of you who were so offended by what I said or thought I was being disrespectful, unfollow me.
This is a prime example of money talks and speaking your opinion when you have no money… WALKS!!!!
