Is Cruz throwing shade at Jaden Smith? Beckham appears to mock the actor with his brother Romeo after sitting next to him at PFW
Cruz Beckham appeared to mock Jaden Smith in a new Instagram post after sitting next to him at Paris Fashion Week on Sunday afternoon.
The son of David and Victoria, 17, was positioned next to Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s son Jaden, 23, during the the Kenzo Menswear S/S 2023 show.
However the following day, Cruz appeared to take aim at something Jaden had previously said about ‘not connecting with people his own age’.
Awks! Cruz Beckham appeared to mock Jaden Smith in a new Instagram post after sitting next to him at Paris Fashion Week on Sunday afternoon
Underneath a picture of his brother Romeo, 19, which was captioned ‘What was I saying’, Cruz wrote: ‘You were chatting bout the political and economic state of the world.’
Cruz’s comment references a viral statement Jaden made earlier this year about how he was ‘happy he spent more time with adults than kids as a child’.
Speaking on BigBoyTV, he said: ‘I was picking up more things from adults than I were [sic] from kids my own age,’ the 23-year-old explained on BigBoyTV earlier this month.

He then went on to imitate the voice of a young person, claiming they like to say things like, ‘Look at my phone! Selfie.’
‘I’m just, like, ‘Dude, like, oh my God. Can we talk about the political and economic state of the world, right now?”
‘Can we talk about what’s going on in the environment? Can we talk about other things?’

Romeo was clearly amused by his brother’s quip and commented underneath with a laughing face emoji.
Jaden’s interview spurred on a series of mocking posts on Twitter, as trolls made fun of his desire for more high-minded conversation.
One user posted photos of Travis Scott rubbing his forehead anxiously, writing, ‘Jaden Smith when he sees kids going to birthday parties instead of discussing politics and the economic state of the world.’

Another user shared a humorous still of SpongeBob SquarePants looking sad and deflated.
‘8 year old Jaden smith when jada gave him a spider man themed birthday party instead of a book study on the war of mesopotamia,’ they jokingly captioned it.
One tweet included a video of Cristiano Ronaldo excitedly rising to his feet to accept an award.
‘Jaden Smith after telling every kid in recess that they only have 20 years to live because of global warming,’ the author wrote.
Close to home: One Twitter user poked fun at him with a still from The Pursuit Of Happyness, which he starred in with his father Will Smith
Mocking: Another person posted a humorous drawing of a man with a brain that had grown big enough that he could sit on it. How Jaden Smith felt like when he said “bro can we talk about the political and economic state of the world right now” to a bunch of middle schoolers’
No comment: Jaden steered clear of any discussion of the moment when his father slapped Chris Rock at the Academy Awards ceremony; seen March 27
Others included photos of Jaden, including one person who shared a set photo from his film The Pursuit Of Happiness, which costarred his father Will Smith.
‘My favourite part of The Pursuit of Happiness was when young Jaden Smith said to Will, “Father the socioeconomic state of New York City will not permit you to maintain a baseline lifestyle as a door to door salesman, you should attempt to join an investment firm instead,”‘ the user wrote.
Another person posted a humorous drawing of a man with a brain that had grown so large that he was able to sit on it like a chair, which they captioned: ‘How Jaden Smith felt like when he said “bro can we talk about the political and economic state of the world right now” to a bunch of middle schoolers.’
Free to choose his path: Jaden also opened up in the interview about his famous parents and how they never tried to steer him toward a career in show business
Jaden also opened up in the interview about his famous parents and how they never tried to steer him toward a career in show business.
‘There was never that expectation,’ he said of following in Will and Jada’s footsteps. ‘And definitely not going into hip hop.’
The musician shared that he and his sister Willow would film parodies of their mother’s series The Matrix when they were younger.
‘I thought everybody’s parents made movies and I thought that everyone made movies with their kids, too,’ he admitted.
He may have developed his preference for serious chats with older individuals after getting a front-row seat to his parents’ business meetings about their upcoming projects.
‘They would be having a meeting about their next film or something and they would put me at the head of the table and just make me sit there while they’re talking, debating with all of these people, talk numbers, talk all of this crazy stuff,’ Jaden said.
Word of warning: Still, his parents alerted him that other people might expect that he would accomplish as much as they had throughout their careers; seen with Jada on March 27
Although Will and Jada weren’t placing their own expectations on Jaden, they made sure he understood that other people might expect him to achieve as much as they had.
‘They made us aware of it before we even found out from other people that there was this expectation on us. They said, “Hey people out there in the outside world, they’re gonna say this and they’re gonna say you have to live up to our expectations of what we’ve done and what we’ve accomplished in our lives and you have to live with that,”‘ he recalled. ‘So we kind of knew that when we were young.’
That dose of realism, which was mixed with encouragement from his parents, helped instil confidence in Jaden.
‘My parents always told me that I could fly. My parents told me that I could dig a hole to the next side of the earth,’ he said. ‘I would always ask them if I could do things, they would always say yes.
‘They wouldn’t necessarily be like, “Here it is!”‘ he clarified. ‘When it’s time to go get the shovel it was like, you get the damn shovel. But they would always let me know that you could do that.’
