Willow Smith, 11, who has a few film credits and songs of her own, has posted an Instagram picture in which she appears to sport a tongue piercing, but it was difficult to figure out if it was real or not.
However, she later admitted it was a fake, but not before a lot of people expressed their outrage, amusement and indifference regarding the matter, obviously caring enough to make her name trend around the world on Twitter.
As @adamdcomedy put it, “Willow Smith was trending because she faked a tongue piercing? Wow. Normal kids have to fake being in a balloon for all that attention…”
Many referenced “Whip My Hair,” her hit song from 2010.
“Willow Smith got a Tongue Ring at the age of 11. I’m gone whip her and her parents back & forth,” offered @GloZell.
“Willow Smith might really have a tongue ring though. Will Smith…we are disappointed. From, America,” announced @TheMisterMarcus.
“Willow Smith is 11 years old & has her tongue pierced!? Someone needs to smack the Fresh Prince of Bel Air upside his head!” suggested former “16 and Pregnant” star Nikkole Paulun.
Don’t you love Twitter? It sure kept a lot of people occupied last night.
