Baltimore Mayor Dismisses Jada Pinkett-Smith


Jada Pinkett Smith wrote a letter to the mayor of her hometown Baltimore, Maryland (Stephanie Rawlings Blake), on behalf of PeTA advocates for elephants. Jada was urging the Mayor to make sure the Ringling Bros. Barnum Bailey Circus complies with the Baltimore ban on bull hooks.

“Unlike me and other actors, elephants do not choose to perform. These endangered elephants will soon be in your jurisdiction. My friends at PETA and I join animal advocates across the state in asking for your leadership in holding Ringling accountable and requiring the circus to comply with Baltimore’s absolute prohibition of the use of devices such as bull hooks.”

Well, the Maryland’s mayor’s attitude was like “is she serious?” and never even responded to Jada’s letter. The Maryland mayor issued the following statement to a local television station instead:

“We’ve reached out about homelessness, school issues and serious issues of that nature. I would have loved to have gotten some feedback, support or concerns about that. Those are very pressing issues to the city.”

Mayor Stephanie concluded with, “how she’s liked the circus every since she was a little girl and couldn’t wait to take her daughter.”

      Really?? Just because you have a female african american mayor don’t mean that’s whatz up. she is more concerned with spending money than dealing with any other real issues involving baltimore.

    Guess with all the money you came into made you become dis-attached with the real issues. Example: Black on Black crimes in “Bodymore” (Black Boys Killing Black Boys)

  6. Now if Jada really wanted to help, why not truly assist the city with building more shelters, providing food for those in need, helping to educate the chronically impoverished. There are real issues going on in the world, than bull hooks with the circus animals.

  7. It’s funny how a celebrity would concern herself with animals instead of trying to help a few of the black men, women, and children struggling in this city. Instead of LOL at this bish, the mayor’s response to Jada’s bullshit was GTFOH…

  11. Jada owes NOBODY nothing and just because she made it don’t mean she’s obligated to feed the homeless in her hometown. Not for nothing but “people need to learn how to do for themselves” and stop looking to others for a handout!

  13. Jada and Will have given almost 2 million dollars to Bmore threw diff charities. So her letter was not out of pocket. Stephanie Rawlings shouldnt be insulting somebody bringing money into the city. But then again, what does she know about being Mayor.

  14. Why is it that most black cities have the same issues with crime, drugs, dropout rates teen pregnancy and just overall foolishness. Martin Luther King Jr and his cronies had far less and went farther. Black people need to stop blaming others and get their shit 2gether on thier own merit.
