Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Urged by Over 15,000 People In Petition to Shut Up About their Marriage


If like me you can’t stand listening to Will Smith and Jada Pinkett talk about their marriage or sex life, you’re not alone.

More than 15,000 people have signed a petition on begging the media to stop interviewing them.

It goes farther than that. There should be a ban on both of these people volunteering any more information about their open marriage, affairs, throwing up after having orgasms, or anything else.

I feel strongly that Will Smith doing this especially has wrecked the box office for “King Richard.” A Black, church-going audience should have embraced his portrayal of Richard Williams, the coach father of Serena and Venus.

But no one is going.Smith’s autobiography, “Will,” should never have been released now. All the excerpts from it have been creepy and unappealing. They’re a turn off. The result is that “King Richard” has made just $12 million in two weeks of release. Will and Jada spend at least that on sex toys from what they say.

And Jada has made things just as bad, dissecting her family on her talk show. It’s all stuff we didn’t want to know, and don’t need to know.

So enough! I agree. Sign the petition here.
