Jada Pinkett Smith talks about a very real concern of hers — cyber bullying of young celebrities. In her heartfelt message Jada posed to her Facebook page the question as to whether or not it is fair to judge Justin Bieber and other young celebrities on a level of responsibility that many themselves do not exhibit.

The 41-year-old actress, who’s also the mother of Justin’s best friend, Jaden Smith had this to say on her Facebook Page.

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?

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. 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? Is it okay to continually attack and criticize a famous 19 year old who is simply trying to build a life, exercise his talents while figuring out what manhood and fame is all about as he carries the weight of supporting his family as well as providing the paychecks to others who depend on him to work so they can feed their families as well? Does that render being called a cunt by an adult male photographer as you try to return to your hotel after leaving the the hospital?

Or what about our nine year old beautiful Oscar nominee who was referred to as a cunt as well? Or what about being a young woman in her early twenties, exploring the intracacies of love and power on the world stage? And should we shame a young woman for displaying a sense of innocence as she navigates through the murky waters of love, heartbreak, and fame? Are these young people not allowed to be young, make mistakes, grow, and eventually transform a million times before our eyes? Are we asking them to defy the laws of nature because of who they are? Why can’t we congratulate them for the capacity to work through their challenges on a world stage and still deliver products that keep them on top. We all know how hard it is to keep our head above water, even in the privacy of our own homes let alone on the world stage. Imagine yourself, at their age, with the spotlights, challenges and responsibilities.

Most of us would have fallen to the waste side before we could even get to a crashed Ferrari, a controversial romance, several heart breaks, or an Oscar nomination at NINE. We WISH we could have had the capacity to accomplish HALF of what they have accomplished along with ALL these challenges they face. But…maybe THAT’S the problem…we WISH we could have or even…we WISH we could.

  1. Oh yeah because people need advice from one of the worst mothers in hollywood. These celebs need to get over themselves a little.

    • WOW WHAT A THING TO SAY. SHE HAS BEEN THE BUSINESS FOR SUCH A LONG TIME. IM SURE SHE KNOW A THING OR TWO. SHES AMAZING ACRTRESS, I LOVE HER MOVIES I ALSO LOVE JADEN. HIM AND JUSTIN ARE SO CUTE TOGETHER.

      • WTF. AND YOU LIKE ANY BETTER. WHAT ARE YOU POLICE OR WAIT YOUR NOT. WHY DO I HAVE TO USE LOWER CASE LETTERS WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO. WHO ARE YOU TELL ME WHAT TO SAY SWERVE

      • Wow, you must be bionic, it’s impressive that you can get so much information from two lines lol.

      • I’m sorry but Justin Bieber fans should not call anyone the worst singer in the world…

        And lol at “not a role model”…The hypocrisy in your comment…

      • I AGREE. AND LIKE SHES ANY BETTER. RIHANNA WHICH SHES NOT. SHES NOT A ROLE MODEL. I HAVE NOT SEEN HER TALK ABOUT HER TOUR OR MUSIC ON TV OR THE MEDIA. WAIT WASN’T SHE LINK TO ASHTON KUTCHER JUST SAYING.

      • AWW ISNT THAT CUTE SOMEONE ACTUALLY LIKES RIHANNA. CONSIDERING PPL THINK SHES A GREAT ROLE MODEL WHICH SHES NOT. SHES A HORRIBLE ROLE MODEL

      • you dont come here and critize my riri because some stupid justin hater came here. you have no idea of what you talking about. stop critizing them both to make one of them seem better.

      • Haha she’s( Rihanna ) just another hater! Us Beliebers could care less what u say:) UR just jealous! Haha it’s kinda pathetic

      • ANSWER ME THIS,. WHY DOES RIHANNA ALWAYS LOOK WASTED ON HER PHOTOS. OR WHEN SHES ON INSTGRAM. SHES NO BETTER THEN ANYONE ELSE. FOOL. PLS RIHANNA IS NO ROLE MODEL. SHES A DAMN FOOL

      • I mean her daughter got a tongue piercing at 10, and her 14 y.o son is out there drinking and partying like a 20 year old. Not to mention that her kids are whored out on tv like products instead of being in school, yet she thinks she’s fit enough to give anyone advice lol.

      • I would love for you to say that to her face, because people can anything over the internet. But don’t have the balls to say it to your face hun

      • Lol believe me I would say that to her face. I almost got expelled from school once for being too upfront, and a woman like her who’s irrelevant to my life will sure as hell not intimidate me in any way.

      • Lol you beliebers spends too much time on twitter trying to trend Bieber hashtags that you think everyone is the same lol. And funny how I’m getting called hater recently, y’all liked me when I was praising him non stop back in 2012.

  2. Wow, Jada’s smart. All she said was true. I like how she said an adult male photographer, pretty much implying that photographer should have been more mature. Haters don’t think ’bout the things she said, but they really should. She said it just the right way, touched my heart, anyway. Then again, it’s pretty easy to touch my heart. But I appreciated what she said, voice of wisdom in a hateful generation (that doesn’t have much intelligence). Give him some time, he’ll figure himself out.

    • WHY WOULD ANYONE CALL A NINE YEAR OLD NAMES. THERE KIDS. THEY DON”T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOUR SAYING THERE KIDS FOR GOD SAKE. ITS NOT LIKE THEY UNDERSTAND WHAT ADULTS ARE SAYING TO THEM.

    • IM SURE WILL AND JADA HAVE GONE THROUGH WHAT JUSTIN HAS BEEN THROUGH. THE TRIALS AND TRUILABTION. OF IT. I FEEL SO BAD FOR CELEBS WHO GET BULLIED. IT DOESN’T FEEL GOOD WHEN YOUR HATERS OR PYSCHO SHUTTERBUGS ARE CONSTANTLY SAYING STUPID THINGS TO YOU. THEY NEED TO BE SHOT (METORPHICALLY.

  3. Jada couldn’t have put it any better then that.I love how she was mature while defending Justin Bieber, and other young celebrities that are being bullied. People want to make Justin Bieber look like the bad guy, but he’s actually a victim. Bullying celebrities is just as bad as bullying a typical kid in high school. All these young celebrities deserve a break! You never know when they won’t be able to take it anymore. :(

  4. An I the only one who hardly comments on this site but is on it ever do often ? I mean sometimes I just wait until my closest friend on this site comments then I comment after her. But let me make it not look THAT bad…….” You go Jada!” I rest my case…

  5. I don’t think we should argue like this people who r going to hate on justin shouldn’t even be on his website and I bet this isn’t even the real Rihanna because what superstar like her would be on a justin bieber fan sight really think bout it she has other things to do

  6. I really want people to say that this lady didn’t make sense because I guarantee you that you are out of your right minds. She speaks the truth and about the Nine year old is sooo true. so forget you haters and wannabes because its still the same routine. You still hate threw a computer while others like Jada make money every day and are blessed. Like Jada and Nine year old and Justin they worked to their stardom and they surely earned all what they have. if you have any question or comments negatively keep them from your selves because when your wrong…your just wrong. Peace out!!

  7. yes she is right y don,t u leave this stupidity these papz r really idiot
    i love u justin i love uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

  8. Jada insipred me to say something. Ever since the year started the media wants to make Justin a bad person. The whole whole smoking weed thing. Smoking may b bad for u but it does not make u a bad person. the paps fight. Pretend Justin is in school and he getting bullied he had enough and defend himself. That is excatly what he did when it comes to paps. Going to clubs. He may b tring to move on. Showing two hours late. He was having probmles. Not caring about his fans. He was having a hard time breathing and he still went on. I never seen celebs do that. He needs to dump lil twist as a friend. How would u like it if someone says u need to dump a friend. How come when I look him up it is nothing but negative things. What about him vistitng sick people or helping and donating to charaties. No it is all about negative things. Most of the time they are rumors. Y r u trashing Justin telling him how to live life and who he should hang out with and b friends with. Selena y r u starting to trash him. I thought u were better than that. I see what u r tring to do. Ruin his career. Did ur mother ever told u bullying was wrong. It does not matter if he famous or not is doesnt give u right to bully him. He already been a victum of cyberbullying. It does not matter who u r. No one deserve to b bully. Everyone does have feeling. When Justin saids he not going to let this negative stuff get to him u dont know if he secertly hurt inside. He has done alot for everyone. Barely anyone treats him with respect. What does the bible say about treating people. Also Justin barely has anyone to lean or turn to for help. He does care about everyone. No one has the right to push u down n mean to u and disrepect u. Justin is here for the music. If he ends up quiting music( i dout he will but u cant read the future u know.) there will b some serious trouble. Y not pick on some one else y is it always justin. He just a 19yr old. Justin we love u and always will. Please stay strong. We got ur back. Sorry for the long comment. If u read this thanks for ur time.
