Do not mess around Will Smith.
Chris RockThis was the lesson that I learned during Sunday’s Oscars 2022 ceremony (March 27). King Richard star—who is nominated in the Best Actor category—confronted him onstage after he had made a dig at Jada Pinkett SmithThe woman has alopecia. After Rock (57) made reference to Pinkett Smith’s shaved hair, Rock joked, “Jada! G.I. Jane 2I can’t wait for it to be here, okay?
Rock laughed as the crowd fell silent and said, “That’s a nice one. Okay?”
Smith marched up to the podium and seemed to be hitting Rock. Rock, at 53 years old, shouted at Smith as he returned to the seat.
Rock awkwardly jumped to the Best Documentary segment and said, “That was the greatest evening in television history.”
Rock was not the only one to make fun of the Smiths during the Oscars. Rock made a joke about the Smiths at the Oscars when he was Saturday Night LiveThe Academy Awards 2016 was hosted by an alumnus. He joked about Pinkett Smith’s decision to boycott the ceremony in 2016. Rihanna‘s panties—I wasn’t invited.”
