Jaden Smith is being roasted online after saying in an interview that he preferred hanging out with adults over kids his own age when he was younger.

The 23-year-old made the comments on BigBoyTV earlier this month, even going as far as to say he wanted to discuss the "political and economic state of the world," which other youngsters apparently didn't.

The Karate Kid star said: “I am very happy that I spent my childhood with more adults than I did with kids my own age because I was picking up more things from adults than I was from kids my own age.”

Then appearing to imitate the voice of a young person, he said they tend to say things like: “Look at my phone! Selfie.”

Jaden went on to say: “I’m just, like, ‘Dude, like, oh my God. Can we talk about the political and economic state of the world, right now?' Can we talk about what’s going on in the environment? Can we talk about other things?”

Elsewhere in the chat he said he likes to “turn up,” “flex,” “play songs loud” and “jump in the club in Atlanta” on occasion, but usually tends to look “for that next thing.”

“I’m not satisfied at just, like, a party,” he said.

In any case, the Pursuit of Happiness star started trending on Twitter on Sunday when soundbites from the interview surfaced on social media.

One person tweeted: “Jaden smith on his way to curse out his kindergarten classmates for not understanding the complexities behind the current political climate.”

Another wrote: "My favorite part of The Pursuit of Happiness was when young Jaden Smith said to Will, 'Father the socioeconomic state of New York City will not permit you to maintain a baseline lifestyle as a door to door saleman, you should attempt to join an investment firm instead.'"

Jaden has since responded to the social media reaction to his comments. In a tweet on Monday, he jokingly reenacted a "scene" in meme form in which he asks a girl if she wants to talk about the "economic and political state of the world together."

Say what you want about Jaden, but he clearly doesn't take himself too seriously!
