Moises Arias and Willow Smith ignite controversy over photograph

Willow Smith hangs in a crowd filled with some mega-celebrities. Kendall and Kylie Jenner are two of her friends even though they are several years older than her. Smith is just 13-years-old but is in complete control of her own life. She makes her own decisions and there are no punishments given for bad choices. According to a May 7 report from E! Online, Willow Smith was photographed in a bed with a shirtless Moises Arias. While it may not seem like a big deal, Arias is 20-years old and Smith is still a young teenager.

Fans of Moises Arias know that the photograph was completely harmless and not intended to cause the amount of controversy it has. Arias is a former Disney Channel star and photographer who keeps a blog where several of his celebrity friends are featured in photos. His friends include Jaden Smith and the Jenner girls. It makes sense that Willow Smith would be hanging out with Arias, given their circle is the same.

There is plenty of outrage throughout social media regarding the photo of Willow Smith and Moises Arias. If you have seen the photo, you will know that Smith was completely clothed while Arias was shirtless. The two were not embracing or even touching. The Twitter feed for “Willow Smith” is plagued with comments about the situation, mostly negative.

Moises Arias and Willow Smith are just friends. While there is a seven-year age difference, that isn't significant when you live in Hollywood. The photo was not done in poor taste and many believe some critics are over-reacting. There has been no comment from Willow's parents, but fans don't expect them to have much to say. Arias may be a little on the weird side, but he is definitely popular with the celebrity-elite. This controversy is giving Arias some unintended but needed exposure to people who didn't know who he was before the photograph surfaced.
