Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's 13-year-old daughter, Willow Smith, is causing quite a stir because of a photo posted on Instagram of her in bed with a shirtless 20-year-old actor, Moises Arias—Rico from Hannah Montana.
The photo shows Willow lying down on the bed, with Arias sitting up behind her. Arias deleted the photo from his Instagram account after receiving negative comments about the post.
"I blame the parents! A 13-year-old should not be hanging out with a 20-year-old! Innocent or not!" a message on TMZ read. "13- and 20-year-olds don't belong in a bed, intimate or otherwise. Not cool. Not OK. Her dad needs to pay him a visit and her mom needs to have a loooong talk with her about appropriate behavior. Bad bad bad," another noted.
Similar sentiments have been expressed on Twitter:
From the looks of Arias' Instagram account, it seems as though he's friends with Willow's brother, Jaden, along with the young Kardashians, Kylie and Kendall.
If I had a 13-year-old daughter, hanging out with a 20-year-old wouldn't happen, but, you know, everyone parents differently.
Readers, what do you think? Is the photo inappropriate, or are people drawing way too many conclusions?
