During the 94th Academy Awards, comedian Chris Rock joked about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith’s, baldness, after the topic became so heated that Smith went on stage and slapped Chris. Will Smith joined the top trend after the video of this incident went viral on social media. Some are making fun of him, while others blame Chris Rock for the incident.
What went wrong?
Chris Rock was enraged when he made a remark about Will’s wife Zeda Pinkett’s baldness. Zenda, in fact, suffers from alopecia, a condition in which her hair falls out completely from one part of her head to the next. Chris revealed on the Oscars stage that his baldness was a factor in his casting in the film ‘GI, Gen 2’. Will was in a lot of trouble as a result of this. The film GI Jane was released in 1997. Demi Moore, who played the leading lady in the film, shaved her head.
Will went on stage and returned after punching Chris in such a situation. For a brief moment, Chris was taken aback, but Smith quickly returned to his seat and abused Chris, saying, “Never bring my wife’s name on your tongue again.” Chris then apologised and stated that he would never do such a thing again. On social media, a video of the entire incident has gone viral. The fans, on the other hand, are divided into two groups. One is defending Will, while the other is defending Chris. Following that, Will Smith won the Best Actor Award for his performance in the film King Richard.
