The 24-year-old son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith sparked concerns among his fans after he took to his Instagram account to share a video of himself crying.
On Tuesday, February 14, “The Karate Kid” star posted a clip of him getting emotional while he was outside. The video also featured him panning the camera to an empty street in what seemed to be in the middle of nowhere.
The rapper/actor didn’t provide context of why he cried, but he made sure to show love for his fans and family in the caption. “I Love My Fans I Love Our Journeys This Family is Our Fortress,” he penned. “I Should write something about emotions and how they’re okay or whatever but honestly I just found this video in my phone.”
Upon catching wind of his post, fans were both confused and concerned. “N***a are you ok?” a worried fan asked in the comments section.
Some others thought that the musician was high on something. “Bros tripping,” one person said. Meanwhile, someone was convinced that Jaden was on drug by pointing out that Jaden added a mushroom emoji in his caption. “LMFAOOOO you gotta realized he put the shrooms emoji ya’alllll,” the user said.
They also trolled Jaden over the crying video. “I thought this was that one snapchat filter til i saw the spit go flying,” one said. Another person joked, “Me looking at everyone’s Valentine’s Day gifts.”
Despite the clownery, some fans applauded Jaden for showing his vulnerability in public. “Takes a strong person to post something like this,” a fan wrote. “Emotions are healthy to have. Anyone in the comments saying otherwise needs to take a deep breath and let go,” another comment read.
“Good for you, remind these guys thats its of to cry, ok to feel, ok to be human,” another supporter said. One other, meanwhile, blasted people who mocked Jaden, saying, “He just showing you it’s okay to cry or express emotions. Read the caption boo.”
