Shortly after the incident, Chris Rock realized that his feud with Will Smith at the Oscars this year was going to be in the headlines, which he described as a memorable night in the history of television.
For those who haven’t seen the video of the incident, let’s say. Standing on the Oscar stage, Rock made fun of Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith. “I’m looking forward to seeing you,” said Teko, pointing to his hairy head. Jada, suffering from alopecia, looked like the bald-headed actress in ‘GI Jane’. Within moments, Smith went on stage and slapped him. He said, ‘Don’t take my wife’s name in your dirty mouth.’
Some have argued in favor of Smith’s case, saying he did it to save his wife’s honor. But many did not like this. Many have agreed that there are other ways to stand by your loved ones without physical abuse. Again, the question arises, did Smith have to save Jada’s honor? In other words, do men need to save women’s ‘honor’? Many have praised Smith for standing by his wife. Another side says Jada Pinkett Smith is an adult woman and capable enough to respond to the incident. If he wanted, he could answer himself!
Later in the evening, Will Smith won the Best Actor award at the Oscars. He starred in Richard Williams’ biography, King Richard, as the father of Venus and Serena Williams. Commenting, Smith apologized to the academy authorities and the nominated co-stars. He also said, ‘I’m really like that crazy father (Richard Williams). But love drives people crazy. ‘ His remarks provoked further criticism. Again, many people have given their opinion, both the actors have made a mistake.
But one thing is clear. News headlines shed light on Smith and Rock. Jada Smith is almost gone from the original story.
