Jada Pinkett Smith is defending Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Taylor Swift and more against media "bullying."
Jada Pinkett Smith
is mad!

The 41-year-old mother is sick and tired of the media attacking young stars and she refuses to stay silent about it

Jada's own offspring are also working their way into the spotlight and she doesn't want to see their everyday lives scrutinized by an overly-aggressive media who knows no boundaries, even when it comes to children.

The angry mama bear took to her Facebook page on Sunday and spoke out in defense of young stars that she feels are being bullied by the media.

In a letter that received over 26,000 "likes" on the popular social media site, the actress asked, "Do we feel as though we can say and do what we please without demonstrating any responsibility simply because they are famous?"

She then seemed to take aim at those attacking Justin Bieber when she said, "Is it okay to continually attack and criticize a famous 19 year old who is simply trying to build a life, exercise his talents while figuring out what manhood and fame is all about as he carries the weight of
supporting his family as well as providing the paychecks to others who depend on him to work so they can feed their families as well?"

Shortly after the letter was posted, Justin's manager, Scooter Braun, tweeted his appreciation for Jada's statements, saying, "well said @jadapsmith - well said!! read it!"

Jada's other statements about love, heartbreak and childhood innocence seemed to be aimed at Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Quvenzhane Wallis, respectively.

Then, speaking for all of them at once, she simply asked, "Are we asking them to defy the laws of nature because of who they are?"

"We all know how hard it is to keep our head above water, even in the privacy of our own homes let alone on the world stage," she continued.

Do you think young stars are treated unfairly by the media or is that what they signed up for?
