Hollywood actor Will Smith is a hot topic of discussion on social media after a blow to comedian Chris Rock’s face, after the MC mocked his wife, actress Jada Pinkett-Smith, at the awards ceremony. 94th Academy Awards.
Will Smith be right to hit chris rock at the oscars 2022?
During the announcement of the “Documentary Film” award, Chris Rock joked about the hair of Will Smith’s wife – actress Jada Pinkett-Smith.
Specifically, Chris Rock expressed his anticipation for the sequel to the GI Jane movie and mentioned Jada Pinkett-Smith as a good candidate. The reason is because the main character of GI Jane appeared with a shaved head, and Jada Pinkett-Smith recently appeared with a bald head.
However, this is considered a bad joke in Oscar history because it disparages looks. The reason Jada Pinkett-Smith has to go bald is because she is suffering from alopecia.
Since 2018 until now, she has suffered from this disease. Last year, she publicly shared about her hair loss and decided to shave her head after the condition became more serious. To date, there is no cure for her illness. “It was one of those periods that scared me,” she says of the feeling when the clumps of hair fall in handfuls.
Initially, Will Smith also laughed when he did not realize this ungrateful statement of Chris Rock. But when he saw his wife angry, the actor went straight to the stage and hit Chris Rock in the face, surprising the whole audience. Chris Rock was also surprised to receive this hit. Will Smith was then very angry. He returned to his seat and repeatedly shouted that Chris Rock must never mention his wife’s name again.
The organizers also quickly cut off Will Smith’s cursing on television. However, the video of the incident went viral online.
Will Smith’s actions caused controversy on social networks.
One side thinks that the actor is too impulsive. “He makes people believe in the stereotype that [people of color] are hot tempered and rude,” one person commented on Instagram.
Will Smith’s behavior made the atmosphere of the whole auditorium become awkward. “If necessary, let’s whisper to each other backstage at the event,” one Facebook user wrote. “So everyone’s evening was lost.”
Many people even praised Chris Rock for being able to keep a serious face after being beaten. Fans of the comedian argued that perhaps Chris Rock did not understand Jada Pinkett-Smith’s hair loss disease.
On the one hand, he supported Will Smith when protecting his wife, not afraid to tarnish his image on national television to prevent Chris Rock from continuing to hurt Jada Pinkett-Smith. “Your husband has to protect you like that,” according to comedian Tiffany Haddish.
Finally, there is also a part that thinks this is a pre-set trick, helping to increase the rating of the Oscars 2022! An estimated 15.36 million people watched this year’s Oscars ceremony, a 56% increase compared to the 2021 ceremony.
After the brawl, Will Smith was named for the Best Actor award for his role as Richard Williams in King Richards . The actor gave an emotional speech.
Throughout his speech, Will Smith expressed his defense for his family. He also apologized to the Organizing Committee, colleagues present at the awards ceremony, and hoped that he would be invited to attend the Oscars ceremony in the following years.
“My actions last night at the Oscars were unacceptable. Jokes about me are okay, part of my job. But making jokes about Jada’s illness was unbearable for me and I reflected too much.
I want to apologize to you, Chris. I’m wrong. It’s a real shame because it doesn’t represent who I want to be.
I also want to apologize to the organizers of the Oscars, the producers, the guests and the global audience. And apologies to the Williams family and the King Richards family . My actions have ruined a trip that should have been beautiful for all of us.”
According to Reuters, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences – the organizer of the Oscars ceremony – was not satisfied with Will Smith’s actions.
