Even now, she’s making it about her. She wants to make the slap more about her and less about Will. When she replaces a light bulb, she just holds the bulb in the socket motionless; the room revolves around her.

Thinking herself, Her husband and Chis Rock are important to the world. Typical Hollywood narcissist

According to Maia Hoskin, a columnist who contributes to Forbes, Will Smith slapped Chris Rock because of white supremacy. Shame on you, white people.

It seems she has yet to take responsibility for her role in the 'slap'. How she manipulated her husband into defending her, despite having more feelings for her son's friend August Alsina.

Someone should tell her that 2022 is the year that normal people start turning their backs on wokeism.

How about wearing a wig?

Problem solved…

Pinkett is selfish. Always is. Wear a wig or get treatment!

Shame? The woman has no shame! Jada has been clocked more times than Davy Crockett's rifle, and, moreover, has been very public about it!

Smith lost his rag because it was easier for him to deflect and thump Rock than it is to confront his notoriously unfaithful wife.

He is with an abuser, and for his own self-worth, Smith needs to get out.

Alopecia is not life-threatening and doesn't cause any pain, discomfort, or disability. It's severe hair loss. Yet here she is, the attention hound, playing the victim card because she's not a very good actor and doesn't get many roles unless her 'husband' casts her. Well she can see her son's friend, her boyfriend, for some sympathy.

Will Smith should have taken the microphone from Chris Rock and told the TV audience that his wife suffered from a certain condition which affects many people. He could have added that sometimes comedy crosses the line just for a laugh, but in some cases it's inappropriate as it was in this case. That would have won the audience over to him.

The condition, particularly for Black women, can affect a person's perception of themselves and force them to frequently confront others' perceptions about beauty, hair and race and culture.

You couldn't have written this in a more racist way if you tried. What exactly makes this particularily traumatic for Black women and why would it be less so for Asian or European ones?

Poor Will being married to her.

Imagine how much better her message of tolerance and understanding would have been if it was not framed in the gratuitous display of physical violence of the oscars

Let's hope Will Smith shows his wife (and Chris Rock) the Arsenio Hall clip of him making a joke about baldness.

Notice the sentence you quoted has two commas separating particularly for Black women: that's a non-defining relative clause. Re-read the sentence without that non-definition for a better understanding.

Dictionary 'racist': "...prejudiced against or antagonistic towards a person or people..."

How is highlighting statistics racist if it's based on empirical information?

Oh the lies…….

Jada Pinkett Smith turned her husband's Oscar-night blowup into a teachable moment about alopecia areata, the hair-loss disorder affecting her and millions of others that, in some cases, can impact a person's sense of identity.

Oh puleeeze! Another crappy article from AP!!!

The whole Oscar thing was about Will being super cucked by his nasty wife who he should have divorced ages ago & also dis-owned his daughter so she could be Tupac's ""daughter"" instead.......insane!!

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

Wow, people in the comments have a whole lot of nasty things to say about a woman they've never met or a couple whose marriage they don't know. Chill out!

The only thing we can say for certain is no one made Will slap Chris, that was 100%his choice. Imo, a totally wrong one which was more or less punished. As for her role in it, she certainly didn't make him do that, it was his choice- he is a grown man. A rich, famous, talented, handsome millionaire at that. There was no need for him to react so childishly.

And as far as all these people in the comments go breaking their backs to somehow blame Jada for his actions, how about you place the blame firmly at the feet of the person who did the crime- no matter the circumstances. Seriously people, get a grip.

Nam, seriously.....jada is a real nasty person, & YES SHE shares a TON of the blame she literally gave Will a MASSIVE evil eye & then he did something stupid, Will needs to ditch her and SOON before he does more stupid stuff

And a TON of stuff is freely available to viewing to see just how nasty she is.

Who cares. Maybe he gets off on being cucked. People like weird stuff. Losers care about these people because their own lives are so boring.

The opposite is true, as evident by the fact of this AP story. Reading the article, even just the first sentence, helps with understanding:

Jada Pinkett Smith turned her husband's Oscar-night blowup into a teachable moment about alopecia areata, the hair-loss disorder affecting her and millions of others that, in some cases, can impact a person's sense of identity.

So if someone cracks a lame joke at your expense you just clock them in the face?

Here's a tip: if you really don't like the comedian on stage then just heckle him, or shoot back a comment of your own.
