From 2013 to 2024: What Happened That Made Zoe Kravitz’s Old Comments Go Viral Again

It remains to be seen how Kravitz and her representatives will respond to the renewed scrutiny

Key Takeaways

  • The controversy stems from a 2013 interview Kravitz gave to V Magazine, where she commented about Jaden Smith.
  • The issue regained prominence following Kravitz’s public stance on the infamous Will Smith-Chris Rock incident at the 2022 Academy Awards.
  • Despite the ongoing controversy, Kravitz has yet to address her 2013 comments about Jaden Smith directly.

As of June 27, 2024, actress Zoe Kravitz is at the center of a renewed social media storm. X (formerly Twitter) users are revisiting controversial comments she made about Jaden Smith over a decade ago and her reaction to Will Smith’s actions at the 2022 Oscars.

The controversy stems from a 2013 interview Kravitz gave to V Magazine, where she commented about then-14-year-old actor Jaden Smith.

Kravitz, who was 24 at the time, said,

“There were moments that I was hanging out with Jaden and thinking, I can’t believe you’re 14, I have to check myself, like what I say to you. He has so much personality and so much swag, he is so much cooler than I am. And he’s so handsome, I was always like, When you’re older…we’ll hang out. Nope, that’s inappropriate, you’re 14.”

These remarks have been criticized as inappropriate given Smith’s young age at the time.

The issue regained prominence following Kravitz’s public stance on the infamous Will Smith-Chris Rock incident at the 2022 Academy Awards.

After the ceremony, Kravitz posted on Instagram, saying,

“Here’s a picture of my dress at the award show where we are apparently assaulting people on stage now.”

In a second post, she added,

“And here is a picture of my dress at the party after the award show—where we are apparently screaming profanities and assaulting people on stage now.”

These comments about Will Smith’s actions led to increased scrutiny of her past, with social media users highlighting her previous statements about Jaden Smith.

A recent post by Twitter user @ZozuJoestar, which has garnered almost 30 million views as of this writing, brought the controversy back into the spotlight.

The post referenced a “tragic accident,” likely alluding to the resurfacing of Kravitz’s past comments and the subsequent backlash.

Despite the ongoing controversy, Kravitz has yet to address her 2013 comments about Jaden Smith directly.

However, in an August 2022 interview with WSJ Magazine, she reflected on her reaction to the Oscars incident and expressed regret over how she handled the situation.

That being said, she did not specifically mention the controversy surrounding her comments about Smith.

As the controversy unfolds, many call for Kravitz to address the situation and take responsibility for her past remarks.
