Jaden Smith’s Philosophical Tweets Are Socrates’ Worst Nightmare

The Smiths (Will and Jada an’ ’em) are an interesting bunch but Jaden Smith is proving to be quite the newsworthy one. He’s BFFs with Justin Bieber (who seems to be tweaking more and more every day), he might be dating Kylie Jenner and all his pants seems to be from MC Hammer’s wardrobe circa 1990.


Plus he refuses to let his forehead be great, always looking worried. It’s as if he is in charge of the entire world and the burden makes him so unable to do anything but look perplexed in pictures. Jaden is always worried for all of us collectively.

And now, we’ve been exposed to Jaden Smith philosophy through Twitter. Lawd. I wish he’d just stop. Also, I want him to stop capitalizing every word of every tweet.

Below are 7 tweets from Jaden that make me wanna dropkick him in the kneecaps. Teenagers can be so annoying.

This dude is really outchea thinking he’s Socrates’ great grandson.  Sir, bye!

Taking that “wise babies” concept thing a tad far, ain’t we?


Screen Shot 2013-11-12 at 11.46.50 AM

What he is RIGHT NOW is insufferable. How does he not annoy himself?

Trees are somewhere like “YOU DON’T KNOW OUR LIVES OR OUR STRUGGLE!” (-_-)


Jaden Smith Tweet

Because what the world needs is LESS education. O____o. I get that he’s critiquing the school system but if he doesn’t go occupy EVERY SEAT in his path! LAWD. And maybe if he went to school, he’d know more about capitalizing things. (-_-)

Screen Shot 2013-11-12 at 11.44.07 AM

Yes. He SHOULD just stop tweeting. His “juvenile” philosophy indeed because this is some childish stuff.

And he’s just 15. Can you imagine this dude at 25? GAH! This is what happens when privilege meets lack of real world relatability meets a know-it-all who went to one too many Scientology classes.

What do y’all think about Jaden’s tweets?

    Mad at the scientology classes tho lol. He’s ridiculous but since he’s never been in the real world he probably doesn’t realize it and that’s just sad. He’s a spoiled rich kid so we can’t really expect him to be anything else.

      Scientology classes? You really need to stop believing in the media. Will Smith and his family, never has been, nor currently believe in Scientology. He’s already denounced the claim on numerous occasions. That’s Tom Cruise that you’re thinking about.

    Why does he look like he would say “Eeeewwwww…work?!?!?!? With my hands?!?!?!?!? Why don’t you appreciate my mind?!?!?!”

    Meanwhile, Willow is somewhere saying “Now y’all see my struggle and who I gotta live with.”

  6. November 12, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    He’s so obnoxious, but he is 15 so that’s to be expected.

  7. November 12, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    I wanted to remove my eyeballs and then hand them to Jaden so that he could remove his eyeballs and replace them, hopefully having a wiser view of the world. I would wear his eyes in my sockets and trade them back with Jaden when he is 25 so that he could have a more holistic view of the world during those 10 years when he received his own eyes back.

    I have been reading too many of his tweets.

    I Was 15 Once And I’ve Had Three Children Who Were All 15 Once And I’m Glad We All Turned 16, then 17, then 18, then 19…etc.

    Let that teenager pontificate. His efforts to analyze and deliver an opinion are proof that he has a brain, which is a muscle in need of exercise. Let us hope that exercising his brain will eventually lead to enlightenment. Let us further hope that he doesn’t say too much now that he will be embarrassed about later on in life. That’s where his parents focus should be.

      My thoughts exactly. He’s fifteen years old and expressing what he can at that age. I think it’s wonderful when young kids and teens express things beyond the superficial. Granted, he probably went off to smoke and skateboard on a spaceship after that but I still think it’s dope he’s forming philosophical opinion. I think as a parent that’d be something to be proud of.

    What. An. Ego.

    But, as many have said, he is a 15 year old and most 15 year olds have an inflated sense of self anyway, let alone if they are celebrity 15 year olds.

    With luck and a dose of reality he might grow into a normal human being but given the Scientology, probably not.

  27. Cyndi D.
    November 12, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    Truth is, at least he has some sort of thoughts that are somewhat tangible. Which is more than I can say for most young people within his age group. Hell, most of them only care about Lil Wayne’s next album release & their next hook up.
    He’s a young man folks, not 27 years old!
    I find it interesting that he’s being held to such a high standard by adults, IJS.

  28. November 12, 2013 at 8:53 pm

    Sure, it’s cute–he thinks this is deep and profound and to other 15 year olds, it probably is. My problem would be with him thinking he’s wiser than his elders. That’s just bad parenting.

    OMG. Ok all of his tweets make me want to offer this boy several seats, but the one about history really disturbed me. Here I am trying to teach middle schoolers to appreciate their personal histories and Jaden Smith has the ability to undo any sense of appreciation with one senseless tweet. I’m going to need someone to sit this child down and help him to understand that history is the key to understanding the future he wants us all to look to. I am really disappointed in him.

    I really cannot stand psuedo-“deep” people like this. They are infruriating. What’s worse is people buy into this, and gass these same people into thinking they’re some kind of revolutionary. STAHP.
    The tweet about history is complete BS. Of course you should know your history!
    I don’t want to dismiss Jaden because of his age, but really how much does he know at 15? On top of that, let’s be honest he’s a rich kid. Nothing wrong with that per se, but come on. Take several seats Jaden.

    Jaden Smith, you just 2deep4us, aren’t you?

    The really annoying thing about it is that they’re tweets. So he can say these little things without backing them up or explaining them and people are forced to interpret or read into them. If someone is able to find meaning in what he says, he gets credit for being “brilliant” and “Deep” without actually doing any work. And sadly, a lot of people will agree with what he says because they’re afraid that if they don’t, they’ll seem stupid or too unsophisticated to “get it”. What a bunch of snake oil. 3deep5me, Jaden.

  43. Sean
    February 5, 2014 at 7:23 pm

    From what I’ve read from the comments and whoever wrote this, you’re all a bunch of Id*ots. Jaden is actually expressing quotes of relative importance to today’s society. Maybe if you all knew how to think, you could have a better understanding of what he’s trying to say and stop looking at him like he’s the Id*iot.

    1. We’re so hooked on teaching everyone on how we fu*#ed up in the past that we’re not teaching anyone on how we can fix it. There’s problems in the world, all of which relates to his other quotes, that nobodies doing anything about but just sitting there being ignorant about it.

    2. The “wise babies” is the fact that babies are not molded or influenced to how society wants them to be, until we go school, that is. In school we are taught to work, push papers, make a living so we don’t die. I agree with that, but while we are so focused on that, we’re not going anywhere as a civilization, we’re not evolving in any way and we have turned into a bunch of ignorant pr*cks who couldn’t give a f*%k about anyone else but ourselves (not aimed at everyone). I could go on, but if you’re smart, you should be able to figure it out yourself.

    And last of all, when he talks speaks about people to un-follow him and to stop tweeting, it’s because you’re all too dumb to understand what he’s really trying to say.
    So stop being a bunch of retards and learn how to understand people better and THINK, don’t judge things you don’t have the capacity to understand.

      1. Ignoring lessons from the past will help to change the future, yeah. As well as civilizations don’t build themselve on inheritance of past knowledges, do they ?

      it just a rich star kid who has no clue and apparently no interest in the fights for rights and justice that allow him to live confortably where he is today. Come on.

      2. Newborn babies are almost digestive tubes with a bit of emotion. Human beings live in society and so influence or imitate others. It’s actually how many young animals learn : by imitation. We’re all influenced in the end at some points. It doesn’t mean we are stupid. Anyone without any past experience or knowledge like newborn babies are would actually be the stupidest being on the planet.

      Seriously, he’s just a common teen who like many doesn’t like school. His life and this society have only made him popular and arrogant enough to make medias receptive to his pseudo wisdom. I just hope when he’ll be a little older, he’ll stop to tweet like a Jean-Claude Van Damme on cocaine and start to learn about real philosophy and real metaphysic. Personnally, I did it at school.

    Actually I’m proud of him for embracing philosophical inquiry, something that he’s curious and maybe even passionate about. Obviously he’s going to have to refine his reasoning skills, but you can feel the wonder in his words. At least it’s authentic. I’d much rather see him do this than try to sell us his “wannabe ghetto” rapper image. Fake people make me cringe.

    People have become quiet analytical of this guy. He’s young and his mind works in a different way than most of yours. Why are you even analyzing him anyway? He’s 17 and still growing. You would think that people would try to write about more serious issues, than a kid trying to find himself. To get Jadens tweets your mind would have to work a certain way. I used to laugh, but now I understand most of them. of you know the lifestyle his parents live you would kind of understand why he MAY be fucked up mentally. His wisdom may not be on your psyche’s horizon, therefore you cannot see his point of view
