Terry McMillan Apologizes For Her Tweets About The Smith Kids, Then Takes It Back

terry mcmillan vs smith kids

Earlier today, we reported that NAACP Image Award nominee (2011)/Waiting To Exhale author Terry McMillan said that Willow and Jaden Smith are “getting pimped and exploited” on her Twitter page.

Looks like McMillan only TEMPORARILY apologized for her comments. Here's her initial Twitter apology:

"I apologize for using the word pimp and exploit in referring to the Smith children. It was insensitive of me and wrong."

Now, the apology is no longer posted on her Twitter page, and instead, she's tweeted the following:

"So, I'm on blast? Too bad when I talk about what's happening in the government, the GOP, racism, love, etc., doesn't go viral."

"These are probably the same folks who live for reality TV and don't care about an SAT score. Or college."

"I think of followers as friends I'm letting into my living room.We differ in opinion but aren't rude.Others:I wouldn't let in my front yard"

Good job, Terry! You very publicly slammed the children of one of the most powerful families in Hollywood, AND added insult to injury by apologizing and then taking it back.

Might be a BIT harder for U to get Waiting to Exhale 2 made now.

Thoughts???

The Smith Kids Are "Getting Pimped And Exploited"!

"These kids don't already know what they "love". Total bullshit" - Terry McMillan

Willow and Jaden Smith are “getting pimped and exploited”, according to NAACP Image Award nominee (2011) and Waiting To Exhale author, Terry McMillan.

After hearing that Willow is simultaneously working on an album and remake of the musical Annie with her dad, Will Smith and Jay-Z, McMillan had this to tweet:

"The Smith children already act like child stars. There's an arrogance in their demeanor and behavior. I find it incredibly sad."
"It feels like the Smith children are being pimped and exploited. Or, they're already hungry for fame. What about 4th grade?"
"A lot of A-list movie stars shielded their children from the Hollywood-world until they were old enough to decide. Look at those who didn't."
"Look at Lindsay. Phoenix. To name but a few. They miss out on childhood. It's more important than fame."

Think that Willow and Jaden are Lucky to have the opportunity to do what they love? Terry calls “Total B.S.”!

She says:

"These kids don't already know what they "love". Total bullshit. They're not prodigies. They think Hollywood is real."
"Why don't they do a remake of The Little Rascals and call it a day? Or, come up with an original film with some ethnic pride. Come on."
"Okay. I've said enough about the Smith children. I'm not debating about them. It's just my opinion. People can justify anything, though."
"I raised my son. I'm not wasting another minute worrying about how Will & Jada are raising their kids."
"P.S. I loved the Karate Kid."

Well, apparently The Karate Kid had enough ethnic pride and originality for Terry!

What do you think? Are Jada and Will exploiting their kids? Are the Smith Kids too young to work Big Willie style?
