Jada Pinkett-Smith responded Tuesday to a slap in the face by her husband on Chris Rock to save her after making a bad joke about her alopecia at the Oscars.
On her Instagram account, the actress posted a very short message: “It’s a season for healing and I’m here for it.” To avoid being overwhelmed with messages, she turned off the comment option under her post.
Remember that comedian Chris Rock, who angered Will Smith on Sunday night during the Oscars, targeted Jada Pinkett Smith in a joke. On her way to present an award, Chris Rock joked about comparing Jada Pinkett’s shaved head to Demi Moore in the movie on her hairstyle. GI Jane.
The 50-year-old actress, who has previously admitted to suffering from alopecia – a condition that causes hair to fall out – stared into the air, frustrated. Will Smith came to his defense by going on stage to slap Chris Rock in front of more than 15 million astonished spectators.
Will Smith apologized for the Chris Rock and Academy Awards the next day in a message posted on Instagram.
Keep in mind that this is not the first time Chris Rock has mocked Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith at the Oscars. In 2016, while hosting a gala, the comedian joked that the couple had boycotted the ceremony due to the “Oscar So White” controversy.
“Jada boycotting the Oscars is like saying Rihanna boycott panties: I was not invited anyway,” the comedian joked.
