Will Smith and Jada Smith famously boycotted this year’s Oscars and in return they got burned by one of their good friends, and the host of Oscars 2016, Chris Rock.
Well, it seems like Chris Rock took advantage of Jada and Will Smith not attending (not being their to defend themselves). Someone had to be the joke that lightened up the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.
And lighten up the mood, it did.
Chris Rock said of Jada Pinkett Smith, “What happened this year? People went nuts. Spike [Lee] got mad. Jada went mad. Will went mad. Everyone went mad!”
He added, “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!”
Ok that was a good one. Even better than Will Smith’s joke, because, well, it wasn’t really a great burn.
He said of Will Smith, “Her man 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. It’s also not fair that Will was paid $20 million for Wild Wild West!”
See, not a burn.
So, do you think Jada and Will Smith held the public humiliation against their friend? My guess is probably not.
The three of them have been friends for a very long time. Also, If anyone can take one for the team, it’s that couple. Will Smith and his wife of almost two decades always seem like they couldn’t care less what others think or say about them.
Also, it’s clear that neither one of them are hurting. Both of them are working hard and show no signs of slowing down.
In fact, Will Smith was just confirmed for yet another major part in a another film directed by David Ayer called Bright. David Ayer also directed Will Smith in Suicide Squad recently.
Bright, which will also star Joel Edgerton, is rumored to be “a contemporary cop thriller, but with fantastical elements.”
Will Smith is also currently filming Collateral Beauty with the great Kate Winslet.
Will Smith is just not hurting right now. At all.
Do you think Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are mad at Chris Rock?
