Jaden Smith apparently has a new conspiracy theory to share.
The young actor and son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett recently tweeted a YouTube video showing an airplane producing condensation trails, which are known to conspiracy theorists as chemtrails. Conspiracy theorists believe that high-flying aircraft are actually dropping chemical or biological agents for some sinister purpose — which most people believe are some kind of mind-control drugs.
For those uninitiated, RationalWiki gives a good breakdown of what theorists believe chemtrails really are:
The chemtrail conspiracy is most popular among those familiar with the New World Order and who claim that the spray is designed to pacify populations, either by making them sick, or some sort of mind control. Like many other pseudoscientific terms, earnest use of the word “chemtrails” immediately identifies the person using it as a crank, and is enough to harm credibility and provoke ridicule among those of a more rationalist disposition.
Jaden Smith didn’t offer much more context to his post, but he has been known for his conspiratorial statements. Jaden has previously used Twitter to share his ideas about the dangers of school, of all things.
“People Use To Ask Me What Do You Wanna Be When You Get Older And I Would Say What A Stupid Question The Real Question Is What Am I Right Now,” he wrote, continuing: “All The Rules In This World Were Made By Someone No Smarter Than You. So Make Your Own.”
“School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth,” Jaden added. “Education Is Rebellion. If Newborn Babies Could Speak They Would Be The Most Intelligent Beings On Planet Earth.”
Jaden’s dad Will has even commented about his son’s strange theories. Will noted that when Jaden was 13, he had a chance to meet President Obama and was desperate to ask if aliens were real.
Will told thehothits.com:
“My son Jaden is a serious conspiracy theorist. That’s one of the problems with the internet. Like any conspiracy theory you can tell him, it’s true. So we’re going to the White House, and he says, ‘Dad, I have to ask the president about the aliens’.
“And we walk into the Situation Room, and Jaden gets that look. And I’m like ‘Dude. Don’t you dare.’ And he’s like, ‘I have to’.
“So he says, ‘Mr President,’ and I’m like ‘Hmmmmmm’ and I said ‘Hey Barack, Jaden…’ and Barack says, ‘Stop. Let me guess. The aliens.’ And I was like ‘aaaaaaaa!’
“And Jaden said, ‘Yeah!’ and Barack said, ‘OK, now let me tell you. I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of extra-terrestrials…But what I can tell you is if there were a situation, this is the room that it would have been discussed in.’ And Jaden goes ‘AAAAHHHHHH!’ He’s like ‘Yes! I knew it! I knew it!’ “
While Jaden Smith apparently has confirmation that aliens exist, he hasn’t commented any further on his chemtrails conspiracy theory.
