The Smiths respond to daughter Willow's controversial photo

By Elise Gabriele,

Controversy arose when former Hannah Montana star, Moises Arias, posted a shirtless photo of himself on a bed with a seven-years-younger Willow Smith last week.

However lax mother Jada Pinkett-Smith, who usually doesn’t speak about family matters to the public, saw nothing wrong with the photo and believes the media is making a fuss about something innocent.

Thirteen-year-old Willow’s mother and father, Will Smith, are Hollywood parents known for having a no punishment policy with their children Willow and Jaden, 15.

Will Smith has previously stated, “We generally don't believe in punishment. From the time Jaden was five or six we would sit him down, and all he has to do is be able to explain why what he did was the right thing for his life,” stated Daily Mail. The same goes for his daughter.

TMZ stated that both of the Smith parents are in agreement that Willow is “very mature” and can make her own decisions.

“Here’s the deal. There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation,” Pinkett-Smith told paparazzi while at Los Angeles airport on May 7, according to Us Weekly.

“You guys are projecting your trash onto it,” the mother of two said to the photographers. “You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”

Arias, 20, is best friends with Willow’s older brother Jaden and the Smith family has known Moises for years.

Due to the clamor on social media about the suggestive nature of the photograph, Arias deleted the black-and-white image from his Tumblr and Instagram accounts.
