Will Smith, Jada Pinkett-Smith- Red Table Talk

As previously reported, Legendary actor Will Smith stunned the world last night (Mar. 27) when he charged onto the Oscars stage and slapped comedian Chris Rock across the face. After Rock joked to Smith that he was looking forward to a sequel to “G.I. Jane,” Smith walked up to the stage and slapped him. After sitting back down, Smith shouted at Rock to “keep my wife’s name out of your f*** mouth.”

Chris Rock compared Pinkett-Smith–who’s been vocal about her battle with alopecia–to G.I. Jane. The 1997 character, played by Demi Moore, became well-known for her bald head. Chris said,

“Jada, I love you, ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it.”

Pinkett-Smith was visibly upset about the jab, which prompted her husband to get physical with Rock.

Reports of past conflict between the Smiths and Chris Rock immediately resurfaced. There’s a possibility that when Rock hosted the ceremony back in 2016, made several jokes about the famous pair, who wasn’t in attendance. One of his comments included:

“Jada said she’s not coming. I was like, ‘Isn’t she on a TV show?’ Jada’s gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited!”

He made another comment about Will’s Concussion film:

“Will was not nominated for ‘Concussion.’ I get it. You get mad. It’s not fair that Will was this good and didn’t get nominated. You’re right,” he said. “It’s also not fair that Will was paid $20 million for ‘Wild Wild West.’”
