Willow Smith has admitted that she and her brother Jaden felt “shunned” by the African American community because they were “too different.”

The 19-year-old singer made the admission during the Oct. 13 episode of “Red Table Talk”.

Both Willow and Jaden are known for their bold sense of style and defiance of gender norms.

Willow said, “Specifically with the African American community, I kind of felt like me and Jaden were shunned a little bit. ‘We’re not gonna take pride in them because they’re too different. They’re too weird.'”

She added: “Even some of our family members, I would feel they thought, ‘You’re too different.'”

Willow made the comments amid a discussion about mom shaming and raising kids in the public eye.

Willow and Jaden’s mom, Jada Pinkett Smith, recalled her own personal experiences of being shamed for her parenting.

Continuing, “Me as a mom looking at that, experiencing that with her, there’s nothing anyone could say to me to tell me that it was wrong. Not one person, because I was there, I was looking at her, I saw her face, I knew the journey she and I took together to get to that point. It didn’t matter what anybody said.”

Smith also experienced shaming for choosing to homeschool Willow and Jaden.

She went on, “I would have gotten shamed for leaving you here and not being with you. They weren’t raised typically and I think, especially for our community, it was something new.”
