Petition To Stop Interviewing Will and Jada Smith Gets Over 23,000 Signatures
While some people hang off of every word Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith say, clearly not everyone is such a big fan.
One non-fan, in particular, is so fed up with hearing about the couple’s controversial and complex personal lives that they actually started an online petition to plead with reporters to stop interviewing them. The petition, hosted on Change.org, now has 23,343 signatures. (1)
Likely, this person was triggered to create this petition upon the release of Will Smith’s new book Will. This is a memoir that is focused primarily on his relationship and marriage with Jada. More of a confessional, really, he talks about his “fantasy harem of girlfriends”.
He also talks about his various experiments with psychedelic drugs, his difficult relationship with his late father, his jealousy about his wife’s friendship with the late rapper Tupac, and much more. (2)
One of the parts that have really been the last straw was the part where Will explains how he dealt with his first girlfriend cheating on him. He explains that he had extreme amounts of s€x with other women.
He had so much s€x, in fact, that it ended up having a psychological effect on him as this wasn’t true to who he usually was. This caused him to gag or even sometimes vomit when he would orgasm. For many, this was simply too much information.
While it was Will Smith’s memoir that seemed to inspire the creation of this petition, he isn’t the only one these people are tired of hearing from. They are also tired of learning about their relationship and personal lives from Jada, as well.
Recently, Jada spoke candidly in interviews about her husband’s failure to sexually satisfy her.
Jada also has a Facebook show called Red Table Talk. There, she has spoken openly about being addicted to porn, sex, cannabis, alcohol, and ecstasy. She discussed her sexual relationship with rapper August Alsina.
The couple have talked about how they have an open marriage and that they don’t even refer to themselves as “married” anymore. Instead, they prefer the term “life partners”.
There are many people who find the Smith’s lives and relationships very interesting. After all, it is certainly an unconventional one. For those who are not so sure about monogamy or curious about non-traditional relationships, then the couple’s stories would probably be quite interesting.
For others, however, both Will and Jada have just gone too far. It is fine if they wish to live their lives that way. Most people are pretty content with them to continue living however they want to. What people aren’t okay with, however, is the constant sharing of intimate details that they’d really rather not know.
The petition has certainly gained a lot of traction. Much more than the original poster had in mind. They were hoping to get around 2000 signatures simply to attract the attention of some local news outlets.
Now, creeping ever closer to the 25,000 signature mark, it is clear that more people are tired of hearing about Jada and Will than they thought.
