Deep dive into Jada Pinkett and Will Smith’s 25 years together!
It was when Chris Rock made fun of Jada Pinkett‘s bald hairstyle just before he announced the Best Documentary nominees at the most recent Oscars. This made her husband, Will Smith, suddenly smack Rock while the show was still being broadcast live. Meanwhile, Rock made an effort to defend his joke. But, when the comedian started mentioning his wife, the actor shouted from his seat to stop him. He said, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king mouth.” Then, taking advantage of the occasion, he would plead with the Academy and his fellow nominees for forgiveness, saying, “Love will make you do crazy things.”
Later, it was discovered that Will Smith was so offended by Rock’s joke that it caught everyone’s attention. The actor, for his part, apologized on Instagram, and thus, Rock chose not to pursue legal action.

Another one tweeted, ” Chris Rock made the joke but Will Smith delivered the punchline.” Another user questioned whether Will Smith was an innovator. “He’s changed the heckling game forever.”
