#WillAndChris Trends Online On Twitter
You’ve most likely heard about a startling occurrence at the Oscars 2022. Will Smith got up on stage at the Oscars 2022 live event and whacked Chris Rock when Chris made a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. Jada was compared to GI Jane 2 by a comedian. Following his statement, Will Smith admonished Chris and requested that he not use his wife’s name again.
The enmity between the two has been simmering for a few years. Few people are aware that Will Smith and Chris Brown ever shared screen time on an episode of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in 1995. Their relationship appeared to be amicable at the moment. Still, two years later, when interviewing Will’s wife Jada on his talk programme, The Chris Rock Show, the comic made a jab at him. He gave her a bottle of champagne while she was conducting the interview without mentioning Will Smith once.
Chris, Will, and Jada have all seemed cordial since the 1997 incident. However, in 2011, Chris Rock made another joke about Will screwing things up for everyone, including himself, while expressing his displeasure at his business colleague’s success. Tensions were still high two years later when Chris Rock took another shot at Will Smith for posting a picture on social media wishing his ex-wife Sheree Zampino a happy birthday. So, indeed, Chris Rock’s jab at his wife at the 2022 Oscars had to be the final nail for Will Smith.
While some internet defended the actor, others felt that Will Smith’s aggressive behaviour was uncalled for and that Chris deserved an apology. “Will Smith “Love makes you do crazy things” How often have victims of #coercivecontrol #domesticabuse heard that remark as an excuse for a perpetrator’s behaviour? There is no justification for violence. “It doesn’t matter how you justify its sic,” a user chastised Smith.
A second person agreed with him and said it was perfectly ok to protect his wife. “I endorse #WillSmith’s protest. But don’t go above the limit. Certain things aren’t amusing. The way he stands up for his wife is admirable; he’s a true gentleman. “I’ve seen so many husbands out there that speak garbage about their wives.”
Meanwhile, Will Smith won the Oscar for best actor in 2022 for his performance in King Richard. During his winning speech, the actor became emotional and sobbed.
