His gesture eclipsed the Oscar winners: Will Smith took the stage to smack Chris Rock, one of the show’s hosts, on March 27, 2022 after a joke about his wife Jada PinkettSmith’s physique. The feud between the Smiths and the comedian isn’t new…
Did the camel’s last straw? The severe slap that Will Smith gave Chris Rock during the Oscars this Sunday, March 27, 2022 would be the result of a series of jokes that the actor’s pair formed with Jada PinkettSmith, among the comedian, one of the presenters the Hollywood show, suffers .

In 2016, Chris Rock had targeted Jada Pinkett during his Oscars monologue when he surfed the controversial “Oscars so White” ceremony for a lack of diversity. He said, “Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties.” I wasn’t invited!” The comic then turned to the actor: “It wasn’t fair that Will wasn’t nominated this year.It’s true, you have to understand it. But it also wasn’t fair that Will Smith was paid $20 million for his role in Wild Wild West.” According to People magazine, Will Smith had those gobs in his throat. Then in 2018, on Twitter This Time, Chris Rock was amused by the complicity between Will Smith and his ex Sheree Zampino: “Wow. You have a very tolerant wife.”

Another actress, Regina Hall, also joked about the Smiths at the Oscars when she called Will onto the stage to form a sexy cast of bachelors while he confronted his wife, “Your wife’s okay with that, so you can me.” follow.” But apparently the prank of Jada PinkettSmith’s ex-partner on Girls Trip passed.

Chris Rock, who also worked with Mrs. Smith on the dubbing of the animated film Madagascar and its sequels, did not receive this preferential treatment. Perhaps because the comedian attacked a health issue the actress had by making fun of her shaved head. (GIJane).In fact, he’s a victim of alopecia, a problem he’s publicly mentioned in the past. Therefore, this joke would have touched the mother of Will Smith’s last two children more deeply, Jaden, who didn’t fail to show his support, and Willow, whose annoyed look was obvious, and even more her husband, who reached out.

When he returned to the stage, this time to collect his Oscar for Best Performance for The Williams Method, Will Smith tearfully apologized to the Academy and other nominees, but not to Chris Rock. He also made reference to his character, the father of tennis players Serena and Venus Williams, considering himself a fierce protector of his family: “Reality sometimes exceeds fiction. I look like this crazy father, like what we said of him. But love makes you do crazy things.” The Oscar for the man who was previously nominated for Ali and The Pursuit of Happyness could be questioned because of his violent behavior, but for now, the Academy has not reacted.
