The mama bear is defending the cubs!
Actress Jada Pinkett Smith took to her Facebook page on Sunday to defend several young stars whose lives have been heavily criticized lately in the media.
“Are we bullying our young artists? … How can we ask for our young stars to have a high level of responsibility if we are not demonstrating that same level of responsibility towards them?” her post to her 3 million followers began. Accompanying the entry was a photo of Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, and Quvenzhane Wallis.
“This last week, I had to really evaluate the communication in regard to our young artists in the media. I was trying to differentiate cyber-bullying from how we attack and ridicule our young stars through media and social networks,” she continued. “It is as if we have forgotten what it means to be young or even how to behave like good ol’ grown folk. Do we feel as though we can say and do what we please without demonstrating any responsibility simply because they are famous?”
