Will Smith approached Chris Rock onstage at the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony, which took place on Sunday, when the comedian made disparaging remarks about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who has her hair in a tight ponytail.
The moment Smith walked to the stage and slapped the comedian during the 94th Annual Academy Awards ceremony placed viewers across the world in a state of startled silence.
The King Richard actress reacted to Rock’s remark by apparently making a jab at Jada Pinkett by comparing her to G. I. Jane, according to TMZ.
After the actress revealed up about her condition of hair loss and suffering from Alopecia back in 2018, Rock made a joke about her in his show.
The actress Jada Pinkett Smith made her first public disclosure about her alopecia on her Red Table Talk series, in which she admitted that dealing with the ailment was “terrifying” when it first began.
She also admitted that she used to find a “handful of hair” in the shower when she was in the shower. She went on to claim that she made the decision to cut her hair at that point. In July 2021, she revealed her new shaved-head hairdo.
