Good for her. I haven't seen a youngster stand up to an established celebrity with that much vehemence since Ariana Grande made Juliana Rancic stand on her bad side that one time.

Right off the bat I suppose it's worth asking: do people really hate Jaden Smith? If what my Internet search results are telling me is accurate, then yes, they most certainly do. That's unfortunate, really, because in the race to Out of Control Teen Mountain, that kid is pacing way behind his competition.
Think about some of the nightmare teens we've had to put up with in recent years. I've defended Justin Bieber in articles like this several different times, but that kid is a special breed of asshole.

The Canadian breed, specifically.
Smith, though? He's just more weird than anything. Yeah, there's a really good chance he owes the majority of his success so far to nepotism, but hating him for that is kind of just hating him for maximizing the opportunities available to him. Plenty of famous actors' kids could be out shitting on the Karate Kid franchise, but they simply don't have the ambition for it. Don't hate Smith for wanting to stay busy in his free time. It's not like he has to.
Ugh, what about those tweets, though, right? What kind of teen spends his time posting philosophical bullshit about love and relationships on social media? All of them. Every single damn one of them. At least Smith has a delightful touch of Gary Busey crazy to his ramblings.
Are you kidding me with how he capitalizes every word? Do you get how much dedication that takes? It's like an anti-typo. Has anyone ever called him on it? If so, I don't know if there's anything I want to see more than what his response might have been. I bet it was "Because Every Word Matters The Most," or some shit like that. So great.
Also, how ironic is it that, of all the people in the world, the only ones who understand Jaden Smith are probably his parents? I sometimes like to imagine that his whole "come join my space cult" vibe is just one big test of his father's adherence to the guidelines put forth in his classic breakthrough single.
Jaden Smith: Hey dad, how can mirrors be real if our eyes aren't real?
Will Smith: Uhhhh, I don't think I understand the ...
Jaden Smith: Ha! You're just like your parents!
Will Smith: *begins weeping*

I don't care what anyone says -- that kid is the best.
