Hey did you guys watch the Oscars?
Chris Rock was attacked by Will Smith, over a joke he made about his wife’s haircut. Perhaps there is more to this than we know, probably, but I don’t have any insider information on that.
This definitely sounds, and feels like a celebrity gossip piece, but when I saw The Globe and Mail feature a piece on how this lone act is the kink in the shield that protects toxic masculinity from being seen in Hollywood, I had to say something!
So here is the video that I saw of the incident (I didn’t watch the Oscars)
Did you see Jada’s face when Chris Rock made the joke? I swear that’s a cultural thing.
Will Smith didn’t even look that bothered at first, it was after all an innocent joke. It can be argued that it’s a old joke, that we shouldn’t comment on others appearance. Yet, people do this all the time. I think Will Smith may have been out of line, maybe he was reacting to Jada’s reaction? I don’t know for sure what goes on in crazy hollywood, maybe people were talking about how Jada cheated on him and instead of divorcing, they have an open marriage?
Chris Rock handled the situation by de-escalating it very quickly, because he doesn’t have anything to prove. You know he made a joke, it wasn’t well received and maybe he feels bad. The intention of Chris Rock was obvious, he just wants everyone to have a good time, right? I always thought black people had thicker skin than that, I mean, okay if Jada was offended, they could have talked to Chris about that joke.
I think Will Smith should have let her sit in her own emotions.
Anyway, even if Jada “hurt” Will on purpose, because he seems to be a very emotionally driven actor, not everyone is going to know this. I’m just saying, you’re a famous couple of people, you might want to take that into consideration.
So here’s the article, it’s behind a paywall, and I left the Globe and Mail when they started with their woke politics, that writer bashed on Nazem Kadri when he was a Toronto Maple Leaf, mounds of opinions just based on rumor, and not really anything of any substance in the Business sections.
I thought I’d mention it if anyone does subscribe to the Globe and wanted to know what I was talking about. I think toxic masculinity is just a derivative of the covert toxic femininity.
That’s just me though. Guys, can’t we just get along?
