Apparently Jaden Smith’s appearance on Late Night With David Letterman has sparked some hatred toward Jaden because supposedly he came across as cocky. Also, people are saying he got his role in The Karate Kid because of nepotism, blah, blah, blah. I say so what? His parents are in showbiz and he wants to be in showbiz so if they can get him a role, why not? If they were plumbers and he wanted to be a plumber I doubt people would care if they got him a plumbing job. Add to that, roles for Blacks are few and far between so if his parents can produce a movie and let him star in it, I say good for them. Top that off with the movie is making so much money the studio is already working on part two. Pow!
EW.com asks an interesting question, is this about race? Let me know your thoughts.
