Jaden Smith tweets controversial comment encouraging everyone to drop school
Jaden Smith, along with a large percentage of Young Hollywood, never seems to know when enough is enough on Twitter. His latest comment has caused a lot of controversy and backlash, and many are calling for him to retract it.
He tweeted, "If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society." He followed that up with, "School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth", "Education Is Rebellion," and "If Newborn Babies Could Speak They Would Be The Most Intelligent Beings On Planet Earth."
Some of the backlash he's received has been, "If @officialjaden wasn't a celeb kid, he'd probably be lying somewhere in a corner high on drugs. Wannabe hipster revolutionary prick."
Because Jaden has a lot of Twitter followers that are children and teenagers, it's very irresponsible for him to tweet about dropping out of school. Young celebrities need to remember the impact that they have on their fans, and they need to set a good example for them. In this particular scenario, he has yet to apologize for his tweet, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did sooner or later.
