At the Oscars in 2022, Will Smith smacked Chris Rock. Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Smith’s baldness. He stated that he is looking forward to “G.I. Jane 2,” a reference to Jada’s bald head. Will Smith subsequently lost it and rushed on stage to hit Chris Rock in the face on live television, and Jada appeared outraged over the joke. Chris, on the other hand, continued to host the show. Will Smith went on to win the Oscar for best actor in a starring role later that night. He sobbed as he approached the platform, saying that Denzel Washington had taught him that the “Devil grabs you at your highest moment.”
What Is In The Clip?
A 2019 clip from one of Pinkett Smith’s former Instagram Live broadcasts was released on Reddit on Thursday. It showed the “King Richard” star becoming irritated with his wife after she brings up the couple’s previous marital issues.
Pinkett Smith opens the 49-second short by stating that world-renowned therapist Esther Perel would be attending the family’s “Red Table Talk” Facebook Watch title soon.
“Esther Perel is coming to the table, you know. Do you think she played a role in you and I redefining our relationship?” Pinkett Smith approaches her spouse with the question.
“I would suggest don’t start filming me without first asking if you may,” Smith advises.
“Oh my goodness,” Pinkett Smith exclaims, before addressing Perel with a message: “Esther, please come aid us again.” I’m still dealing with idiotic behavior.”
“Don’t just-” Smith adds, visibly upset by the fact that he is being videotaped in his house. “Would you say that she helped us repair the scars that we made between each other?” Pinkett Smith continues to press her husband.
“OK, so my social media is my bread and butter. So, you know, you can’t just utilize me for social media and not for anything else. I’m standing in front of my home. Smith says, “Don’t simply start rolling.”
With a note to her fans, the mom of two then turns back on herself.
“Please keep an eye on Esther at the Red Table since she has been quite helpful to us. “Can’t you see?” Jada said.
Reddit users have left almost 10,000 comments on the video. Pinkett is accused by several of not respecting Smith’s limits. One user said, “His facial expressions explain it all.”
History Of Will Smith And Jada Smith’s Relationship
The couple has a 23-year-old son named Jaden and a 21-year-old daughter named Willow. The couple’s relationship was scrutinized for years as reports circulated that they were married openly. Pinkett Smith has already used “Red Table Talk” to be radically candid with viewers about her marriage to the “Suicide Squad” star. It included confessions about “heart betrayals” and figuring out how to be people without abandoning the other.
Jada and her spouse appeared on their Facebook Watch series in July 2021, when she addressed accusations of an illicit affair head-on. Pinkett Smith testified that she and Smith split about five years ago with the intention of divorcing and that she had a “relationship” with August Alsina while they were apart.
Jada Pinkett Smith Accepted Her Relationship With August Alsina
The actor told his wife at one point, “I’d had it with yo a—. I’d had enough of you. Marriages, on the other hand, have that.”
Pinkett Smith went on to explain how the “entanglement” started.
“It all began with him simply requiring assistance. I wanted to aid him with his physical and emotional state “she clarified
“From then, you know, I got into a new type of entanglement with August as time went on,” Pinkett Smith explained. Smith then pressed his wife to elaborate on her remarks. “It was definitely a relationship,” she said.
What Will Smith Had To Say About His Actions
The actor tendered his departure last Friday, saying in a statement to Fox News Digital that he had “betrayed the trust of the Academy.”
“I have reacted immediately to the Academy’s notice of disciplinary hearing, and I will completely accept any repercussions for my actions. My behavior at the 94th Academy Awards was startling, terrible, and unforgivable. Chris, his family, many of my good friends and loved ones, all those in attendance, and global audiences at home are among the people I have injured. I broke the Academy’s confidence,” the actor stated in his opinion.
The “Pursuit Of Happyness” star went on to say that he “denied other candidates and winners the opportunity to rejoice,” and that he will embrace any additional punishment from the board.
Will Smith’s Apology To Chris Rock
“Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally,” Smith posted. Later Smith publicly apologized to Chris. He added, “I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
Meanwhile, Rock has been performing standup since the Oscars incident and in his first return to the stage he told a Boston crowd he’s “still kind of processing what happened.”
“At some point, I’ll talk about that s—, and it will be serious, and it will be funny,” Rock continued.
