Chris Rock slams Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith

Will Smith not fazed by Rock’s remarks.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

NEW YORK — Less than 24 hours after skipping the 2016 Academy Awards, an upbeat Will Smith was spotted on the New York City set of “Collateral Beauty” on Monday (Feb 29th). The “Concussion” star and wife Jada Pinkett Smith boycotted Sunday night’s event amid mounting frustration over the lack of diversity at the Oscars. For the second consecutive year, all of the acting nominees were white. Will, 47, was asked to give a response to Chris Rock’s skewering remarks. Instead of taking the bait, Will flashed a smile to paparazzi while throwing up the peace sign.

During his opening monologue, Chris took several shots at Will and Jada. “What happened this year? People went nuts. Spike [Lee] got mad. Jada went mad. Will went mad. Everyone went mad!” Chris said about all the celebs protesting the Oscars.

“Jada said she’s not coming. I was like, ‘Isn’t she on TV show?’ Jada’s gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited!” Chris continued, “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!”

Do you think Chris was out of line?

  1. Chris Rock’s opening monologue was pathetic and the academy probably told him what he could and could not say. If Jada and Will have an issue with the lack of diversity within the Oscar nominations- they have a right to feel the way that they feel. Chris Rock made absolutely no sense in his monologue. Joking about racism doesn’t help the problem at all. What an idiot! Everyone is saying “Oh, Chris did such an amazing job!”, what did he do up there that was so amazing? He only made the white people in the room feel better about the situation. Mission accomplished.

  2. The whole time Chris Rock was making those comments (err….”jokes”) about JADA, I was wondering how furious she must have been watching it on TV!

  3. He can smile and take pictures and none of it is going to make up for the giant mistake his wife made on his behalf. He’s lost that loving feeling and it’s gone, gone, gone…….

  4. I hope Will kicks Chris Rock’s ass

  5. I like Will Smith and some of his films are definitely entertaining. His wife Jada not so much.

  6. They weren’t missed at the Oscars. Poor Will. Wifey had to go and put her big gob in it.

  7. the smiths won the oscar for fools of the year and their little kids too.

  8. Chris Rock is the biggest coon in Hollywood

  9. I have never been impressed with Chris Rock. How did he become famous??????

  10. CharlesNCharge

    Will Smith is one of the few black actors I will watch.

  11. Will has class and Chris Rockhead doesnt

  12. The Oscars are not racist. Only the best get recognized. Doesnt matter if you are black or white.

  13. Black people literally biting the hand that feeds them. White people are the reason you have public housing and EBT cards instead of shanties and pigs feet (which, oddly enough, you eat voluntarily)
