Stop Interviewing Will and Jada Smith Petition

“Everything I hear about this couple is against my will. Free us,” wrote one commenter.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith will probably have to distance themselves from the Red Table. At least that’s what some people ask for.

A Change.org petition – aptly titled “Stop Interviewing Will and Jada Smith!” – launched calls to journalists a week ago to stop giving the Hollywood power couple a platform. There are currently more than 18,400 signatures in total.

And while much of the attention is focused on Will, Jada is also making headlines. In September, she said she and her daughter, Willow, had considered BBLs. Earlier this year, she revealed that she had been knocked unconscious on the set of 1996 from a “bad batch of ecstasy”. The nutty professor.

“The vomiting was the last straw,” wrote one commenter who signed the petition, referring to when Will confessed to dealing with being cheated on by his first girlfriend by having so much sex that “it literally made me gag and sometimes even throw up.”

The current top commentary on the petition – with more than 330 likes – reads: “Everything I learn about this couple is against my will. Free us.” The one below – “Not everything has to be widely known <3."

Meanwhile, others expressed their frustration at the couple’s sharing of sordid details in explicit, simple ways. One commenter wrote in capital letters, “BECAUSE I’M FUCKING TIRED.”

As seen on Twitter, petitioners are certainly not alone in their feelings:

The petition comes after a similar celebrity-driven (or, more accurately, anti-celebrity-driven) campaign to ban James Corden from starring in the new Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo-led Bad amendment. Currently, the month-old Change.org petition has gathered more than 98,000 supporters.

All in all, sometimes celebrities do the most! And checking them with petitions is hilarious – perhaps pointless.
