Most everyone has heard about Jada Pinkett-Smith’s fiery reaction to the Oscars being “too white” after she released a video promising a boycott. As it turns out, she should have been a little more careful, because in the background of the video was a pair of horrid items that show her pure hypocrisy.
It’s no secret that the Hollyweird types are animal lovers and donate massive sums of money and time to groups like uber-liberal PETA, which often pushes for animal rights to come before humans. So it stands to reason that Jada and Will Smith would be supportive of such endeavors, which makes the fact they appear to have elephant tusks in their home quite damning for them both.
Apparently, when Pinkett-Smith recorded her racist rant, she didn’t take into account that there appears to be two tusks from a full-grown bull elephant displayed directly behind her, as Clash Daily keenly observed. Oops!
Doug Giles from Clash explains why this is even an issue:
Also, just out of curiosity, how did you and Will get that elephant’s ivory? The only ways I know of are…
- You went elephant hunting — which the anti-hunters won’t like.
- You legally purchased the ivory shot by another hunter and sold to you — which the anti-hunters won’t like either. Or…
- You purchased poached, illegal ivory, sold on the black market, which is the equivalent of a blood diamond.
I hope you guys purchased the ivory legally because that’s a felony under The Lacy Act. Lastly, I also find it really weird that you guys would own elephant ivory since it represents repressive Colonialism.
Anyways, it appears as if the Smiths, like so many others in uber-left Hollywood, are hypocritical to say the least. Then again, what would we expect from Pinkett-Smith, who feels that skin color is more important than actual skill? I wouldn’t expect any liberal outrage anytime soon, since it’s rare that they’ll ever call out one of their own.
This entire situation is really unfortunate. I actually like Will Smith as an actor, but thanks to his bigoted and racist wife, I don’t think I’ll be watching any of his movies any longer.
Oh, and for the record – I’m all for legal hunting that’s done through the proper channels. The point of this was to point out Pinkett-Smith’s hypocrisy, not to decry hunters as bad people, just so we’re clear.
