Willow, listen to your fans! Many of them were up in arms on May 6 after a photo of the 13-year-old singer laying in bed with 20-year-old actor Moises Arias surfaced online. From some people begging Willow not to rush into adulthood to others demanding that Will & Jada Pinkett-Smith keep an eye on her, the picture has clearly caused a ton of emotional reactions.
Willow Smith is surely mature and experienced beyond her years, but that doesn’t change that she’s still only 13 years old. So when a picture of the young girl lounging in a bed with Hannah Montana actor Moises Arias, 20, hit the internet on May 6, many fans were worried, many were outraged, but most of all, many were just flat-out shocked.
Willow Smith: Fans React To Shocking Photo
After seeing Willow and the almost-adult Moises looking extremely chummy in that bed, it didn’t take long for Twitter to blow up with a variety of reactions. Most people seemingly just wanted the “Whip My Hair” to act her age:

And unsurprisingly, there were also people who turned the blame to Willow’s parents, Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith:

Willow Smith lying in bed with a shirtless hasbeen from Hannah Montana? Now that’s funny. Signs of bad parenting, but funny.

Neither Willow nor Moises have spoken out about the controversial picture yet. And while it should be noted that the picture does appear harmless, no 13-year-old should ever be getting into bed with a 20-year-old.
So what was your reaction to seeing this scandalous photo of Willow and Moises, HollywoodLifers? Let us know.
