The “Will Smith and Family Reacting to Miley Cyrus” VMAs Picture Is A Lie
11:20 am, August 26th, 2013
The entire Internet is passing around a screenshot (see right) from Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards that supposedly shows Will Smith and his children Willow and Jaden looking horrified during Miley Cyrus’ raunchy performance.
Everyone is wrong.
Us Weekly, Buzzfeed, Yahoo!, and thousands of Twitter users ignored the image in the lower right-hand corner of the shot (see below), which actually shows who was on stage at the time — Gaga, NOT Cyrus.
Sure enough, Gossip Cop checked the full replay of MTV’s “Live All Access” feed, and the now-infamous Smith reaction shot comes at 03:04:17 — smack in the middle of Gaga’s performance, which, it should be noted, the Smiths applauded just a few seconds later.
While the world had plenty of reactions to Cyrus’ racy VMAs stage show, the Smiths’ is NOT one of them.
