Will And Jada Initiate Operation Don’t Talk About My Kids B*tch… Terry McMillan Eats Her Own Words!!!

- By Bossip Staff

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!!!!

    Who is she too criticize when she doesn’t know gay when she see it. She should never judge anyone. Maybe she’s jeolous because her son can get a acting or sing job

  • EyBwah

    Oh I see how it is, it’s okay for us to spend money and say how cute the Smith kids are, but any criticism makes us haters and we’re picking on children. You can’t have it both ways, you put your brats out there like that, expect some people to dislike them.

    • HmmMMMM

      Totally agree!! and could not have said it better!!

  • http://www.jeanettedavis.com Jeanette Davis (Author: "The Great Divide Between Blacks & Whites"

    How ironic for people to say she shouldn’t criticize and in the same breath criticize her?
    Hypocrites, the lot of you who may right now be hooked up with someone on the down low and don’t know it. This is boring, mean and ill-spirited chatter. BYE!!!

  • Artemis

    Why would Will or Jada need to put their kids out there, it’s not like they don’t have their own success. What parent doesn’t want their kids to be successful too? Now if Will and Jada were some D list couple..maybe that would be true.

  • jenn love

    She can’t talk about no one she married a gay man, u just shouldnt talk about people children when u have children yourself. I love the Will and Jada and their kids seem to be very respectful. They talk to grown people with respect. and I love willow song. I LOVE THEM AND VERY PROUD of their family.

    I got into her a..the other day about her comment about Oprah & her half sister. She deleted the comment. Apparently she didn’t learn from that experience, guess she got it now!

    • RHONYC

      i got a sneaking suspicion that the cliché phrase “YOU’LL NEVER WORK IN THIS TOWN AGAIN!” came across her path within 12hrs of that tweet. betta learn not to sh*t where you eat dummy. 😆

  • I Am Legend ( Allergic To Darkies)

    She was wrong for sayin they are pimpin and exploiting their kids…

    The truth is you were pimped and exploited by a man who Stevie Wonder could tell is a FAG …

    • bahamas/chicago/cayman girl


  • Dasmyname

    If you have a problem with Will and Jada, let it be with Will and Jada. Willow and Jaden are children being guided to what they want to do in life. There is a difference in The Smiths parenting, and “Toddlers and Tiaras”.

  • Tina


    What did she say about Oprah’s half sister

  • midnite snack

    At least she was woman enough to apologize. I hope she will focus on other topics and leave the neg.talk about the kids out of it. The kids look happy and they seem grown enough to say they’re tired and need a break from their careers.

    • shane1

      I would normally just read on but felt the urge to comment on Terry’s apology. If you look at it, she only apologizes for her choice of words, not actually what she said. She then goes on to talk about the backlash that she got(subjectively). She down played everything. It does not matter if she is right or not, the issue is that she is not the parent. I am sure that Jada and Will know and realize that with every act there is a react, and with every choice there is a “consequence.” We all raise our children in certain ways, and we will all eventually be faced with how they grow up. I wish she would have talked about something ( if anything) about how jada and Will have braved the controversial lives of being black, rich, and living in the world that they live in. They have been married for years, and that tells you the about the solidarity of their relationship. Hang in there you two….

  • What goes up, must come down

    What does her marrying a gay dude have to do with her comments? I would like to think that she wouldn’t have knowingly married a gay dude.

    • Demilicious

      thats the point! she don’t know what the eff she doin or sayin! SMDH @ her

  • Mrs. Rance

    That is not a “slapped down by the man” retraction. That’s a “my Twitter followers been gettin in my azz” less than half azzed retraction. In fact its not a retraction at all.

  • Matix who you calling a B

    Twitter is for twits…hate the way it is set up. I’m a leader not a follower so I can’t wrap my head around the concept of twitter, seems like a lot of drama over something so dumb.

    • I'm Just Me...Keeping It Real Since: 1983


    • Uhh Yeah Ok

      True. It’s pretty lame.. OMG folllow me!! ahaha uhhh NO!

  • jenn love

    tracy mcmillian hasnt been popular since stella got her groove back fall back and quit hating on will and jada will is my favorite dude, his
    humble and his a family man. He flew back home every weekend from china to c his oldest son play football. So rhat makes him a great father and he also attends church.

    • Mrs. Rance

      That’s probably because you don’t read. That’s not a diss, I’m just sayin. Terry has a new book out right now called “Getting to Happy” that is the sequel to Waiting to Exhale. She is still writing, filthy rich, outspoken and crazy as the day is long.

    • Mrs. Rance

      And her name is Terry not Tracy.

  • semausmom

    She had an opinion and that’s all it was. People say and do worse and need to get over it.

  • E$

    I’m glad I don’t have to take back the stuff I say on Twitter
