So Will Smith kissed Jaden Smith while taping an interview promoting After Earth on Thai TV. What’s the big whoop?! Can’t a father show affection for his son while they promote their Scientology movie together on The Woody Show? Should men be afraid to kiss and hug their own children out of fear that society and, worse, blogs will perceive what they’re doing as “weird” or “creepy”? Should we treat Will and Jaden’s relationship differently than we would treat the relationship of any father and son, just because this father and son relationship exists, purposefully, in the spotlight? Are we moving still further away from a time when people were allowed to love each other and maintain their families without speculation and prodding from the never-satiated public? Will we be satisfied only when they are torn down and left exclusively as objects of ridicule? Will we ever be satisfied?! Can’t we allow a father and his son one tender moment? Can’t we be human beings?

OOOOOOOOOPS, NEVERMIND, IT WAS GROSS! SUPER GROSS KISS! AHHHHHHHHH! CHILL OUT, WILL SMITH! WE BELIEVE YOU’RE AFFECTIONATE AROUND THE HOUSE! YUCK! WILL! RELAX! (Thanks for the tip, Gideon!)

  1. Wow, how embarrassing for Jaden. Parents just don’t understand.

  2. AW HELL NAW!

  3. “Do you know how big you are in Thailand?”

    He’s 6’2″, so I’d say he’s pretty big over there.

  4. I don’t see what the big deal is. So he named his son after his wife, force-kissed him on TV, actively discourages him from having a girlfriend, and the best advice he’s given him was “Just go to sleep, things will be better in the morning?” This all sounds very normal to me.

  5. This guy knows what Jaden is talking about.

  6. Kid should’ve slapped his pops.

  7. Uh… is Will Smith wearing makeup to look more Thai here? Or is that how his face looks now?

  8. Honestly, though, a story about Will Smith kissing a young boy in Thailand could easily have been a lot worse.

  9. Maybe it’s just me, but when I see Jaden’s face my impulse to slap it.

  10. “Will and Jaden Smith Interview,” AKA Jaden’s emancipation application
