Willow Smith didn’t break the Internet but she did spark outrage on social media over a topless T-shirt she wore to a fashion event. On Friday (Jan. 23), the 14-year-old singer posted a photo of herself on Twitter, in which she poses nude. Well, not quite.


Actually, Willow is wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier tee that features exposed breasts — nipples and all. At first glance, it looks as if she is exposing herself, but she’s really not. The photo didn’t sit well with prunes on the Internet. When the picture was reposted on V Files’ Instagram page, it instantly went viral.

For her part, Willow tweeted on her timeline, “When did the women’s body start being something to hide? #freethenipple.”

Reactions to the photo have caused heated debates on social media on whether it’s appropriate for a 14-year-old girl to wear a shirt that exposes breasts.

“Where is your father?” questioned one commenter, who wasn’t amused by the tee, while another follower said, “Tacky. Yes, I know it is a t-shirt and not her body but it is still very tacky!!”

But there were others who supported Willow’s political statement on women’s bodies.

“Leave her [alone] and mind your [business] because her parents [are not] complaining so boop,” wrote one person. One supporter wrote, “Beautiful colors lil one. Do you. Don’t let the world close you into a box.”
