NEW YORK (KSDK) - A photo is making the rounds, claiming to be Will Smith and his family reacting to Mily Cyrus' raunchy VMA performance Sunday night.

Various media outlets including Business Insider, Buzzfeed, and Yahoo! Music have a screen grab of an audience camera that shows the Smith family reacting to what they said was Cyrus' raunchy performance.


The Huffington Post reports the reaction was actually to Lady Gaga's opening performance of Applause.  They say the Smiths weren't shocked by the performance, but that the screen grab caught Willow in the middle of chewing gum and Jada scratching her nose.

The audience cam was only available online, so the audience cam was not aired during the television broadcast.

The photo has gone viral, so NewsChannel 5 personalities Scott Connell, Sara Dayley, Pat McGonigle, and Jennifer Blome re-enacted the photo Monday morning.
