After years of over-sharing, the internet has finally fought back with a petition begging the high-profile couple to stop.
After years of Will Smith and his wife Jada living their lives like open books, internet users have a message: please stop.
The Smiths have been in the public eye since the ’90s, but have stepped up the revelations about their personal lives in recent years.
They talked about business, the illusion of having fun and Tupac without the need for prompts on various online platforms.
But now it seems the internet has had enough of a Change.org petition created to “Stop Interviewing Will and Jada Smith.” The petition has nearly two thousand signatures at the time of writing and the sentiment is echoed in the comments section.
“It doesn’t all have to be common knowledge,” Gandhi Anastacio wrote.
“Everything I learn about this couple is against my free will,” said another.
“Half the shit they say shouldn’t be said boy,” added another.
It seems the final straw was Will who told the Graham Norton Show about the time he played a prank on his ultra-religious grandmother by showing her one of Jada’s sex scenes.
“Because she didn’t know who Jada was, I edited a movie of her and understood that by the time Jada arrived, my grandmother would be watching the love scene,” he said. -he declares.
“When she (Jada) came in, my grandmother was in the middle of the stage.”
“She looked up and said to Jada, ‘When I was young people didn’t have to take their clothes off to make a movie.”
What should have been left out
In his recent memoir, titled Will, the 53-year-old wrote about how as a teenager he allegedly had sex until he threw up to forget about his girlfriend.
Although this was printed in his book, the comments quickly spread online.
“I became a ghetto hyena,” he wrote.
“I have had sex with so many women, and it was so constitutionally unpleasant at the core of my being, that I developed a psychosomatic reaction to orgasm.
He added that the act “would literally make me throw up and sometimes even throw up”
Conversations about the couple’s sex life have been common in recent years.
During a stint on her talk show Red Table Talk, Jada opened up about her sexual grievances.
“I think you expect your partner to know, especially when it comes to sex,” she said.
“It’s like, ‘Well if you love me you should know that.’ You know what I mean? If you love me, you should read my mind. You know what I mean?”
The couple also opened up about their open marriage. Which saw Jada engage in an affair with singer-songwriter August Alsina. The man is 21 years younger than Jada and was initially friends with his son, Jaden.
After years of dominating the big screen, Will made a shift to the online space in 2018 when he hosted YouTube Rewind.
The annual event focuses on highlights from years past, however, Smith’s inclusion sparked a huge backlash from creators who wondered what fame had to do with the platform.
Since then he has become a meme and his online presence has come under heavy scrutiny.
