Zoë Kravitz Faces Backlash After Shading Will Smith’s Oscars Slap

Zoë Kravitz has been criticized for dropping a jab at Will Smith over his Chris Rock Oscars slap; some trolls claim she's a hypocrite who's made her own mistakes with her family.

Several netizens have taken to Twitter with unfounded claims that Kravitz, 33, has been sexting Smith's 23-year-old son Jaden Smith over the years. Some have even called her a "predator."

“Zoe Kravitz should have kept quiet, now she’s being outed as a predator, previously being in a relationship with a domestic abuser and being besties with a sexual predator. What a time to be alive. Pots calling kettles, logs in eyes,” one person tweeted.

Another person wrote, “Heres Zoe Kravitz referring to a 16 year old Jaden Smith as ‘her date’ ‘the love of her life’ and expressing that she ‘loves him’ while being at the time 26 years old,” resurfacing a clip of Kravitz being interviewed by Extra on the red carpet.

“zoe kravitz also a predator btw,” another troll argued, sharing an article where Kravitz joked about having feelings for Jaden.

“Zoe Kravitz is the perfect example of learning to mind your own business,” said someone else.

Page Six has reached out to Kravitz's rep.

Others vehemently defended Kravitz, arguing that she was "right" to criticize Smith, 53, for assaulting Rock, 57, during Sunday's 2022 Oscars ceremony.

“Why do people not like zoe kravitz now? because she said will smith should'nt have hit someone over a joke?" one person asked on Twitter.

“watching Zoe Kravitz get bullied and ripped to shreds over stupid ass comments is so disappointing to watch,” another agreed.

Page Six previously reported that Kravitz criticized Smith in the caption of her Instagram post on Tuesday, which featured a photo of her stylish red carpet look.

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

“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,” she wrote in a second post.

Kravitz was referring to the now-famous Oscars 2022 moment when Smith hit Rock after he made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's bald head.
