Will Smith apologized to Chris Rock on Instagram. A look back to 2016 when Rock hosted the Oscars and made some jokes about Jada. AND a look at Will’s own memoir might explain what this is REALLY About.
Tickets to Chris Rock’s comedy tour have skyrocketed in value.
A look at behind the scenes as the Oscars folks tried to figure out what to do.
This is the bonus episode for Tuesday, March 29th, discussing will Smith and Chris rock. Don’t miss the regular episode that went out in the feed. You’ll find that right below this one that went out earlier this morning, Jimmy Kimmel said no one could have predicted that the most controversial movie of 2022 would be GI Jean
obviously Chris rock did not deserve to be slapped in the face for joke. Will’s point of view was he was defending his wife and that’s a tough position to be in because it’s damned if you do Ted Cruz, if you don’t that his grades Kimmel to me, there’s only one more step to make this right. The comedy central roast of will Smith hosted by Chris rock, Kimmel, hope they at least get together and have a red table talk or something because it’s a bummer.
If you’re not hip to what red table talk is, we’ll get to that. Just file that away. Go bare. Let me say something as an objective observer. It’s never okay to punch of comedian. Go bare again. I’ve got to say will Smith was offended by the joke and wanted to stand up for his wife.
Fine challenge Chris to a duel, or if you really want to hit him, don’t laugh. It hurts more than a punch. I promise you Kimmel by the way. No one did anything. A whole room of people. No one lifted a finger, a Spider-Man was there Ackerman, was there Catwoman all sitting on their hands? No one helped Chris.
We’ll never stop talking about this. It was so shocking. The only thing I can really compare it to was when Mike Tyson bit Evander, Holyfield, his ears, even Kanye was like, you went on stage and did what an orange show.
Felon with a good one in a split. Second, the Oscars went from Oscar de LA Renta to Oscar de LA Hoya. You know, Seth, the academy awards featured the first live performance of, we don’t talk about Bruno from Encanto followed by an unbelievable live performance of we don’t talk about Jaeda. Go there. That’s the worst thing will Smith has ever done.
Wait, I forgot about wild wild west Kobe. I’m kidding. Obviously the worst thing he’s ever done is Gemini man. Someone just slapped both of the guys in that.
Fallon. Lucky, moved the award for best film editing out of the main broadcast than all hell breaks loose. Seriously. You know, it was a strange award show and it ends with a statement from LAPD. You know what I’m saying? And Kimmel, this was the Hollywood version of your drunk uncle, starting a fight, ruining the wedding and then standing up giving a long toast to the bride and groom.
Will Smith has issued an apology for striking presenter. Chris rock will did this on Instagram and said jokes at my expensive part of the job, but a joke about Jadas medical condition was too much for me to bear. And I reacted emotionally. I’d like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line.
I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man. I want to be, there’s no place for violence in a world of love and kindness. Violence in all forms is poisonous and district. He also included in the known and apology to the academy and the producers of the show, all of the attendees and everybody watching around the world, as well as the family of tennis stars, Venus and Serena Williams, and those involved with the film for which he won best actor.
I deeply regret that my behavior has stained. What has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all. I am a work in progress. The LA times points out that Chris rock will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith do have some history. Chris rock appeared on an episode of Smiths had come the fresh prince back in 1995 and was a voice actor along Jada Pinkett Smith in three animated Madagascar films.
All right, but Chris rock has used Jada as a punchline before at the academy awards in 2016 for the second year in a row. All 20 acting nominees were whites
will Smith was not nominated for his role in the sports drama, concussion, Pinkett Smith, publicly declared that she was boycotting the Oscars and would not attend.
The LA times recaps in a video announcing her decision. She addressed Chris rock who had already been announced at that. Year’s host saying, Hey Chris, I won’t be the academy awards and I won’t be watching, but I can’t think of a better man to do the job at hand this year.
And then you, my friend in his opening monologue, Chris rock said, What happened this year? What happened? People went mad, spike, got mad. Sharpton got mad. Jaeda went mad and will win mad. Everybody went mad. You know, it’s quite like Gita got mad. Gina said, she’s not coming protesting. I’m like, isn’t she on a TV show?
Jaeda is going to boycott the Oscar Jayda boycotting. The Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited.
Jadas mad her man, Will’s not nominated for concussion. I get it. Uh, get it. So you, the truth, I get it. You get mad said it’s not fair. That will was this good. And didn’t get nominated. You’re right. It’s also not fair that Willis paid $20 million for wild wild west. Jada Pinkett Smith commented on the jokes.
Days later when the paparazzi asked her and she said, Hey, look, it comes with the territory. We got to keep moving. We got a lot of stuff. We handle a lot of stuff going on in our world right now. We’ve got to keep moving.
The only times adds it probably didn’t help that the couple had been the butt of a joke earlier in the night. All of us, including me, forgot that our Regina hall did that bit about
A single woman, bringing some sexy men backstage. Remember that by the way, let’s gender flip that bit sometime let’s not get into that today.
Regina hall sends. He will Smith onstage. You’re married, but you know what? You’re on the list and it looks like Jada approved you. So you get on up here. All right. Now, as part of that will and Jayda have spoken about a period of non-monogamy in their relationship.
In 2018 Jayda launched Reddit tabletop, a talk show on Facebook watch in which she was on with her mother and daughter having intimate conversations. Any most well known and widely MeMed episode, Pinker Smith and Smith discussed their relationship, which many have deemed as a monogamish and said, we broke up within our marriage and got back together again
and we had to rebuild with new rules and something way, completely different.
On Monday, the academy said they had condemned will Smith’s actions and we’re starting a formal review of the academy. Condemns the actions of Mr. Smith. At last night’s show, we have officially started a formal review around the incident and we’ll explore further action and consequences in accordance with our bylaws standards of conduct and California law.
I watched the Oscars. I can tell you what happened, Chris, rock cracked a joke. Willsmith walked up to the stage and slapped him. That’s what happened? That’s the review. What do you guys do? Apparently leadership quotes strongly considered unquotes removing will Smith from the Oscars telecast.
There were immediate discussions for the academy. Decision-makers were seated in various spots in the Dolby theater. And couldn’t mobilize to make a decision before he won best actor. Yeah. Cause there’s like an hour in between there also. Do you just get to slap her presenter again? I’ll keep asking the question.
If the guy who was there for auto best cinematography gets up and slaps Amy Schumer, does he get to stay? What are the rules? Were the lines
the New York times says at least a dozen members of the.
I met virtually on Monday, the meeting was described as heated and divided. There was no agreement on further action.
The dozen members who met of their own volition or being described as influential and recognizable members of the academy, including actors and directors, the group does not have any disciplinary power, but they’re considered high profile enough that the board of governors for the academy could be influenced in any response.
They have. Page six has details from inside the room. One Hollywood insider said, we thought it was a bit, then we heard will yelling. You heard it so loudly in a theater. Another insider was in the green room and said, suddenly everybody frozen. The whole place was like what the F happened.
The insider told how Smith’s long-time publicist.
The academy CEO and the Oscars producer and the academy president all walks in a private room cooled very quickly with great seriousness and insider said there was a sense that something was wrong with Wil. I heard Chris’s manager, Jason Weinberg say, I’ve got to deal with the LAPD.
Now I have to find out what’s going on then. Everybody was saying, holy S even the bartenders, the gravitas was not lost on anyone. There were people saying, oh my God, poor Chris people were wanting of Chris’s face was red because he was flustered because he was hit.
Rock was shaken. As he walked off stage to meet with producers and members of the LAPD. When he got off stage, it was a bit Shigin. He was taken to a side room and talked to the producers and LAPD. Then he went to the writer’s room and spoke to his guys and left. I mean, these are guys he’s worked with for years.
No one thought there were any issues with the jokes. If anything, Regina Hall’s joke about will and Jayda early in the evening, which hinted at their open marriage .
Was in way, worst was in way worse.
The Washington post dove into some of a will Smith’s pass, not in like a salacious way, but they talked about the memoir that he wrote. The Washington post says for all will Smith’s open. One passage from his memoir may shed an uncomfortable amount of light. And what happens Sunday night will Smith writes about his father’s alcoholism and violent tendencies.
Focusing on a particularly awful experience that he wrote, quote, defined who I am when I was nine years old, I watched my father punch my mother in the side of the head. So hard. She collapsed. I saw her spit. From the memoir, when his father was suffering from cancer years later, will Smith wrote that he was pushing him in his wheelchair from the bedroom to the bathroom, a path across the top of the staircase.
He entertained the thought of throwing him down the stairs of killing him, quotes within everything I’ve done. Since then, the awards, the accolades, the spotlights and attention, the characters in the laughs. There’s been a subtle string of apologies to my mother for my inaction, that day for failing her in the moment for failing stand up to my father for being a coward way after come down and stand as will Smithy alien annihilating MC the bigger than life movie star is largely construction, a carefully crafted and honed character designed to protect myself, to hide myself from the.
It’s a hide. The coward take that all in
near Crow says Chris rock was consoled by fellow comics, Wanda Sykes, and Sasha Baron Cohen at a glitzy.
This was at music manager, guy or series house. People there say rock was composed as he was approached by a host of stunned. A-listers one spy said Chris was very calm. There’s a lot of love for him at that party. Wanda Sykes was his wing man for the night. He was sitting at guy’s dining table and people lined up to console him and offer support.
Comics at the Oscars are expected to poke fun at the guests. That’s what happens? What about Ricky? Gervais said the golden Globes. He scared the entire room. He could have been punched by dozens of people that didn’t happen.
A second source said there was some concern that will Smith would show up at guy’s party. And there was a discussion about what to do to keep them apart. Thankfully will did not show up well. And Chris didn’t get to clear the air. After the incident. Chris left the Oscar ceremony immediately and went a guy who series house.
However, Sean Diddy Combs told page six, the two had worked out their issues after the telecasts. Did he told page six, it’s all love their brothers. did. He’s the only one really sharing that account. I’m sure. It’s true. Why would, did he make that up? guess you’re curious, who was, who else was at the after party?
Well, you weren’t invited, but you know who was Taylor swift? Leo DiCaprio, Robert Pattinson, Billie Eilish, Zoe Kravitz, Sean Mendez, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. Andrew Garfield, Olivia Colman, Jason Mamoa, Amy Schumer, Jessica chestain, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard
takeaway TD Larry David, Trevor Noah Aston, kosher and Mila Kunis.
Elliot page John Leguizamo and a bunch of others, whole other level out there
from people, Amy Schumer assured fans that Kristen dunce was in on the joke that involves her at the 94th academy.
Amy made a joke that dunce was actually a seat filler at the Oscars Schumer shared a note on Instagram saying, Hey, I appreciate the love for Kirsten Dunst. I love her too. That was a choreograph bitch. She was in on.
Also, and this is going to get lost. I saw this a news day late last week, Amy Schumer skipped out on an interview with a major newspaper hands it’s initials are N Y N T, which is rarely a good omen. Amy later explained that she was ill. I wonder why she skipped out on that one. I guess she was ill. That’s the story.
All right. That’s your bonus episode? Like I said, there was a normal episode in the feed earlier this morning. Don’t miss that. The plan for Wednesday is a normal episode in the morning. And if there’s even more Oscars, Chris rock stuff, I’ll do a bonus episode. Again, follow the show for free on apple podcast.
