Will Smith’s infamous controversy got many opinions

Will’s actions were caught on live tape and caused a huge controversy. Many celebs came up to give their opinions on this situation. Los Angeles Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is one of them. Kareem published an article about this fiasco stating, that women should not be happy with his behavior. He expressed how this entire issue makes no sense. Kareem feels disappointed with Jaden Smith for giving out a specific statement. Will and Jada’s eldest son Jaden Smith came to support his father by tweeting ‘And That’s How We Do It.’ This was particularly not taken well by Kareem.


Kareem expressed how young fans would follow in his footsteps and resort to violence on petty issues. Jabbar found the saddest thing in the whole fiasco was what Jaden said. Jabbar tweets “Perhaps the saddest confirmation of this is the tweet from Smith’s child Jaden: “And That’s How We Do It.”
