Jaden Smith Claps Back After Getting Trolled for Mocking People His Own Age

Apparently catching wind of the backlash and memes over his comments from a 2018 interview about preferring to hang out with adults over kids growing up, the 'Karate Kid' star jumps to his own defense on Twitter.

AceShowbiz - Jaden Smith has responded after being clowned for mocking people his own age. The son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith has clapped back after he's trolled for his comments in an old interview about preferring to hang out with adults over kids growing up.

In a clip from the 2018 interview which resurfaced earlier this month, the 23-year-old said he would much rather be discussing politics or culture while kids didn't like to talk about the "political and economic state of the world."

"I am very happy that I spent my childhood with more adults than I did with kids my own age, because I was picking up more things from adults than I were [sic] from kids my own age," he said during an appearance on Big BoyTV. He went imitating the voice of a young person as saying, "Look at my phone! Selfie."

"I'm just, like, dude, like, oh my God. Can we talk about the political and economic state of the world, right now?" Jaden complained. "Can we talk about what's going on in the environment? Can we talk about other things?"

Assuring that he still enjoys things young people do, the rapper/actor noted, "Don't worry - I like to turn up. I like to flex. I like to play songs loud and jump in the crowd in Atlanta, but I'm always looking for that next thing." He added though, "I'm not satisfied at just a party."

Jaden's comments sparked numerous memes on social media, with one person posting screenshots from Travis Scott (II)'s apology video for the Astroworld tragedy and wrote, "Jaden Smith at the age of 12 when he got a Wii instead of the declaration of independence."

Another mocked him, "Jaden smith when he gets a PlayStation 5 instead of a book on how to solve inflation in Bangladesh for Christmas." A third commented, "Jaden Smith when he gets a spider-man themed party instead of an economic and political state of the world themed party."

Jaden apparently has caught wind of the backlash because he has turned to Twitter to share his own meme. He posted an image of himself looking stoic and shared a hypothetical conversation with an imaginary friend.
