Perhaps it was a mere slip of the keyboard, but a recent tweet from Jaden Smith urging kids to drop out of school has landed him in hot water!
Yesterday news broke that Jaden (who is home schooled), tweeted to followers that they should quit school! The tweets however weren’t taken so lightly as the 15-year-old, has more than 4.5 million twitter followers. With such a huge following, Jaden’s tweets are looked at by so many and these days, fans take things like that seriously. But is it okay for us to put so much pressure on Jaden to be politically correct about what he’s saying?
While some think Jaden’s tweets should be monitored, others say that we should just let Jaden be what he is… a rambling teenager.
Take a look at some of the reactions and sound off below.
School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth.
Education Is Rebellion.
If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society.
Talk show host Wendy Williams spoke her piece saying:
This boy needs a spanking. It’s easy to say ‘drop out of school’ when you are an entitled, rich kid from Hollywood. But what about the rest of everybody else out here, in the streets, trying to make a way?
And Actress Ana Ortiz sounded off also:
I think Wendy is absolutely right. It’s so easy to be so flippant about it, but knowledge is power, education is the key, especially children of color. It’s a real real shame that he’s telling these kids that school is a waste of time. Our people of color –– I mean the brown kids, the black kids –– we need to stay in school. We need to get an education. It’s just appalling and a bit infuriating that he’s going to tell us that we need to drop out of school. Where we going to go then?
