Jada Pinkett-Smith has responded to the controversy sparked by a picture of teen actress and rapper Willow Smith, her 13 year-old daughter, showing the teen in the bed with the 20 year-old Moises Arias.
In the controversial photo, 13 year-old Willow Smith is seen lying in the bed close to the shirtless actor Moises Arias known for his role as Rico in Hannah Montana.
The photo was actually posted on Arias’ Instagram but he quickly removed it after the negative comments came flaring in.
Though Arias removed the photo it had already made its way to media, which quickly reported the photo that gave a suggestive impression that had already been rumored that Willow was dating an older man.
People quickly began calling the photo inappropriate throughout social media and Internet sites.
Now, Jada Pinkett-Smith somewhat defended her daughter while lashing out at people who have criticized or shared negative comments regarding her daughter’s photo.
In a quick run-in with TMZ, Jada Smith, on camera, says there is nothing sexual about Willow Smith’s picture or the situation and says people are just “acting like covert pedophiles” for thinking the photo is inappropriate.
