Terry McMillian Slams Will Smith's Kids

In a recent twitter message, author Terry McMillian made uncomplimentary remarks about Will Smith's kids.  It seems Will and Jay-Z are discussing financing a remake of the musical "Annie" which would star Willow Smith, daughter of Will and Jada.   Willow has achieved fame in the music world with her hit “I Whip My Hair”.

Seems Terry tweeted that Willow and brother Jaden, 12, “are being pimped and exploited” by parents Will and Jada Smith. She went on to say “The Smith children already act like child stars. There’s an arrogance in their demeanor and behavior,” she wrote.

But after her Tweets made headlines, Terry apologized for the use of one of her words.
"I apologize for using the word pimp and exploit in referring to the Smith children. It was insensitive of me and wrong," she wrote.

Even though Ms. McMillian apologized so after her remarks, we see another case of folks bad mouthing other folks for no obvious reason other than envy or sour grapes. It's just another case of "crabs in the barrell" I'd rather celebrate the fact that Will and Jay-Z have the wherewith all to make "Annie" happen and that African American entertainers with talented children can help launch their careers.

Shame on you Terry!
