An incident occurred at this year’s Oscars.
Because of a tasteless joke, Will Smith took the stage and hit Chris Rock in front of an astonished audience.
The reason was that he made a joke about the bald head of his wife Jada Pinkett Smith who suffers from alopecia.
“Jada, I love you. ‘G.I. “Jane 2 ‘I can’t wait to see him,” Chris said, referring to “G.I. Jane 2 “on her shaved head.
„G.I. Jane “is a film starring Demi Moore in which she plays a woman who shaves her head to fit into a special military unit.
After his comment, Jada rolled her eyes, and Will stepped on stage and hit him. “Keep my wife’s name out of your mouth,” Will shouted twice after returning to his chair in the audience.
Jada openly talks about hair loss due to alopecia.
Shortly afterwards, Will Smith was awarded the Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Richard Williams, the father of tennis legends Serena and Venus Williams, in “King Richard.”
Take a look at his emotional speech after receiving the statuette:
“Richard Williams was a brave defender of his family. At this time in my life, I am overwhelmed by what God is calling me to do and to be in this world. “In my life I am called to love and protect people,” Will said through tears.
“I know that in order to do this, we have to be able to tolerate bullying, you have to be able to put up with people saying crazy things about you. “In this business you have to be able to have people who will not respect you and you have to laugh and pretend that it is OK.”
