Jada Pinkett Smith has been promoting her book on Instagram and on one of her posts she share a clip of herself and Tupac lip-syncing to Will Smith’s “Parent’s Just Don’t Understand”.
On one post she wrote:
CHAPTER- Advanced Degree
Not in a million years would I have dreamed that the Fresh Prince and I would become, um, very acquainted.
Not in a million years did I imagine three lives, their fates, would be so intertwined.
And… I never would have imagined that this video would become a tangible memory, of the last time Pac and I, were simply kids together.
Pac and I lip syncing Parents Just Don’t Understand by Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince during our Junior year in high school. Who would have thought?
On another post she said:
Here is part of the original video of Pac and I doing a terrible job at lip syncing Parents Just Don’t Understand😄
See video below:
Here is part of the original video of 2Pac and Jada Pinkett Smith lip syncing to Parents Don't Understand. They filmed this at Kings Dominion circa 1988.

While we understand Jada’s premise for the post and her book is about HER LIFE, people thought the post was tasteless all things considered.
One commenter said:
Like, why? Can you just let the man RiP and YOUR man live in peace 🙄
And another said:
You just love playing with that man don’t you
The disrespect continues 😮💨
Too cute but Jada focus on the one that’s living right in the same house as you. 🤦🏾♀️
Come on sis you begging us to judge … Will did such an adorable post all about you smh
Girl, you trippin. Not you and ya man wrapping your other man song.
On Twitter the sentiment were pretty much the same:
Please Will Smith I’m begging you to follow all our favorite celebrity couples and get a divorce bruh. You posted a beautiful hbd post to Jada on IG and she posted her dancing with PAC. pic.twitter.com/WOrTI6K7PA

Imagine slapping Chris Rock because of Jada Pinkett Smith and then losing movie roles over it, only for her to post a video of her and 2Pac lip-syncing to your song on IG. Will Smith, we're praying for you.

Will Smith recently celebrated Jada’s birthday and on his post he said:
Happy Birthday, Mamita! I’ve been to 28 of your birthday parties. (I don’t know if we’re ever gonna top the one that Rakim performed at… but here’s to a Lifetime of trying!)
Then he shared a series of pictures of Jada from her 27th birthday, to 50 years old.
