It was literally the SLAP heard around the world…..but let’s talk about it:
It was May of 2018 when Jada Pinkett Smith discussed being diagnosed with alopecia on the Red Table Talk which she has been very open about discussing her personal journey with the world. While having been diagnosed myself along with many of you, I am curious to know what your thoughts are on what transpired at the 2022 Oscars!
Jada’s alopecia diagnosis was jokingly brought up at the 2022 Oscars by comedian Chris Rock and…..not everyone found it funny. Chris Rock joked that he was “excited to see her in the next G.I. Jane sequel” seeming referencing her shaved/low cut hairstyle. While Pinkett Smith was seen rolling her eyes, her husband Will Smith was less than amused and casually walked up on stage and SLAPPED Chris Rock in the face. After returning to his seat, he responded to Rock, “Leave my wife’s name out of your f—king mouth.”
Now while it was aired for all to see and many have seen….I am curious to know how you all feel about what happened?
While many of us suffer from hair and scalp issues ultimately deal with them in our own ways, imagine how we would feel if we became the butt of the joke on a condition that we have no control over:/
Let me know your thoughts?
