Singer and actress Willow Smith has come under some serious fire after posting an image on Twitter in support of the Free the Nipple campaign.
We can say for certain that the backlash is unwarranted and that the media is just picking at straws.
Willow uploaded on Twitter an image of herself wearing a top with the drawing of a torso and breasts. However, for some strange reason, folks thought the 14-year-old was showing off her own assets to the world and right away, they dug into her.
Who would have expected the daughter of Will Smith to actually go topless in a public setting? The whole thing doesn't make much sense, yet the media and fans on Twitter have taken it to another level.
"When did the women's body start being something to hide? #freethenipple." From Willow Smith's account on Twitter.
It's interesting when people like Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne, Madonna and Rihanna go all the way; the press fails to make a big deal out of those situations.
What is the Free the Nipple campaign?
From what we've come to understand, the Free the Nipple campaign is all about empowering women. The folks behind this campaign believe that women should have the right to go topless whenever and wherever they feel. Their argument is that if men can go topless, then why can't a woman?
In several states throughout the United States, it is illegal for women to walk around in public with their breasts out. They could face jail time and a fine of up to $2,500. Interestingly enough, it is even illegal for women to breastfeed in public, which is quite strange.
New York City is the only place in the United States with a law that supports women walking around topless. This law has been put in place since 1992, but despite that, the NYPD is still arresting women who walk around without a shirt and bra.
The team is trying to change things via old school campaigning through social media and film. So far, only a single film has been released about the matter, but it did not go down well with reviewers.
