That seemed staged and to find out it wasn’t is a bit shocking
Mar 27th 2022

felt staged.. but Jada didn’t laugh at the joke so maybe Will
Mar 27th 2022
10
naw that wasnt staged at all
Mar 27th 2022
11

Mar 27th 2022
12
No. That was a massive L after 3 yrs of Ls
Mar 27th 2022

Mar 27th 2022
17

Mar 27th 2022
21

Mar 27th 2022
20
Yep, Will was LOLing while Jada was clearly not happy
Mar 27th 2022
23
I think it was staged
Mar 27th 2022
24
It seemed so because you would think a real punch/slap would
Mar 27th 2022
27
no blood, no bruise or scar
Mar 27th 2022
28
he slapped him not punched him
Mar 27th 2022

42
Largely an unfortunate misunderstanding
Mar 27th 2022
43
Agreed.
Mar 28th 2022
51
ok then why did he laugh at the joke initially then
Mar 28th 2022
57
because it was funny? Because that is what you do at award shows?
Mar 28th 2022
71
      That joke wasn’t funny. That was definitely a polite chuckle
Mar 28th 2022
238
Yeah his dumb speech made it worse.
Mar 28th 2022
67
Jada’s condition is not for jokes but
Mar 27th 2022
44
this is a pretty interesting insight
Mar 28th 2022
217
Wow!
Mar 27th 2022
45
Rock declined to press charges, but he could
Mar 28th 2022

      He won’t cause he know he was wrongg
Mar 28th 2022

           I didnt realize we had so many cancel vultures in here. Lmao
Mar 28th 2022

Mar 28th 2022
75
He’s gotta talk to rock afterward. Everyone is fair game at these thin...
Mar 28th 2022
52
i might look at this differently if he didn't laugh at the joke
Mar 28th 2022
55
      Yea I think you are right re: processing time, etc.
Mar 28th 2022
166
           I don't think Jada would've approved of him apologizing to Rock
Mar 28th 2022
174
                Yea that's a whole other discussion haha.
Mar 28th 2022

It's extremely relevant.
Mar 28th 2022
164
of course he wouldnt slap a woman.
Mar 28th 2022
115
I don't think it's much of a reach to suggest that
Mar 28th 2022
153
its a valid question. he knows where his bread is buttered

Mar 28th 2022

      That's actually a powerful line you wrote:
Mar 28th 2022
146
cuz it turns out Will is a Hollywood weirdo like the rest of them
Mar 28th 2022
120
the VERY first thing I thought about...
Mar 28th 2022
117
slapable offenses generally build up over years...people forget that..
Mar 28th 2022
124
you said he gave that man that accrued work, lol

What about Ricky Gervais and the Golden Globes
Mar 28th 2022

Can we stay on the subject?
Mar 28th 2022
135
No we can't, Buddy didn't crumble because I asked him a question
Mar 28th 2022

the subject is mean spirited jokes at award shows

      Oh ok
Mar 28th 2022
152
he wasn't the host though, right?
Mar 28th 2022
141
This is correct, he wasn’t the host
Mar 28th 2022
148
So you side with Will Smith and Sean Penn.
Mar 28th 2022

I literally said, "Not an excuse for Will."
Mar 28th 2022

Speaking of racial hypotheticals, what if Brad Pitt slapped Rock.
Mar 28th 2022
145
he probably would've gotten slapped back lol
Mar 28th 2022
157
I wonder what the point of the hypotheticals are?
Mar 28th 2022

      If Will smacked Seinfeld or Degeneres his career would be OVER...

Mar 28th 2022
163
Will did appear to hold in a smile as he walked away
Mar 28th 2022
165
      Of course he smiled after, defending your manhood and lady feels good.
Mar 28th 2022
183
      Chris rock weighs about the same as Jada tho
Mar 28th 2022
185
           That's why he smacked him and not punched...a smack is a very deliberate
Mar 28th 2022
187
      I'm definitely leaning towards it being staged, but.........
Mar 28th 2022

She just has alopecia right?
Mar 28th 2022

I think if the joke was "lol @ your alopecia" it'd still be fucked up

Mar 28th 2022
203
                     Exactly
Mar 28th 2022
205
                     Gotcha. I misread it as being a sign of weakness or being white-like
Mar 28th 2022
211
                          I just think that isn’t the way the world works
Mar 28th 2022
225
      Exactly. I respect the hell out of Chris for rolling with it

The whole point of hosting shows like the Oscars, GG, and Espys
Mar 28th 2022
196
This might be a first but I 100% agree with everything you just said
Mar 28th 2022
206
lol that's not the point of the show
Mar 28th 2022
209
      ^^Right. I think folks don't get how seriously Hollywood takes the Oscar...
Mar 28th 2022
216
           It they took it that seriously Chris Rock wouldn't be the host.
Mar 28th 2022
218
           Both are true.. its a serious event but the roasting and joking IS part ...
Mar 28th 2022

Will Smith been going through alot publicly and transparently
Mar 28th 2022

of course he did

So I actually have Tickets to see Chris on Saturday,

Mar 28th 2022
243
what would be the motive for that though?
Mar 29th 2022
245
      the Oscars haven’t been this popular in 20 years
Mar 29th 2022
252
      But why would Will and Rock sign up to do THAT?
Mar 29th 2022
255
      exactly .and on this of all nights
Mar 29th 2022
287
           an award show that is suffering from ratings decline
Mar 30th 2022

he should have his oscar revoked and be banned from the oscars
Mar 29th 2022

      This is a perfectly level headed response.
Mar 29th 2022

      Revoking the Oscar opens up a can of worms
Mar 29th 2022

      an important distinction is he did it at the actual award event

He made himself look like a dumbass. Rock ate the slap and made a funny ass joke after. Will Smith is still a dumb cornball. He's achieved Super CornBall status now.

Does he stay for the entire ceremony now? That would be weird and awkward.

Will initially laughs at the joke and then decides that he needs to course correct and sucker punch/slap Rock. Which Rock takes in such stride that people assume that it was all staged.

Will better hope he wins tonight because if he doesn’t, he is never going to win now and may find it hard to get acting jobs after that.

They just gave him an Oscar. Not to be a lame but if any of us did that we'd be arrested or escorted out. He's having a mental breakdown.

Hit a comedian after they made a joke about them, they would be escorted out and possibly arrested.

If this is okay and people are cool with this, a trans person or someone dating a trans person can attend a Chappelle show and just hit him for not liking his trans joke, sit back down like nothing happened and the show just continues on? Not to make this about Chappelle and his trans jokes but just using that as an example.

Dave is also about 100 pounds of muscle heavier than Chris Rock. No one is trying that shit.

Pretty sure this is a once in a lifetime thing. I don’t expect any more comics to get slapped by anybody

Trophy or no trophy, this dude just took the L of all Ls.

From his overreaction to him not being able to even phase Chris (lol I'm crying) to him being ON VIDEO laughing until Jada wasn' thaving it to everything else dudes have pointed out in here.

Jada will post something about Pac inside of 3 days lol lol


Yeah, Will needs to go away for awhile.


But...you seem to like cornball, fake tough guy shit like this.

If Will didn't react at all? L
Overreact (debatable, but I personally think he overreacted)? L

The thing is this is all people are going to talk about, it's going to completely overshadow his win.

Years from now, people are still gonna think about this when they think about Will's Oscar win.

Knock Rock down or at least daze him. The fact that Rock didn’t stagger and kept his composure makes it seemed staged.

You would think Will would be strong enough to knock Rock down.

Will slapped him, and is in a fighting stance (I guess that Ali training paid off for him).

Someone further up posted the video too where you can see the uncensored words that were exchanged after.

IMO Rock likely didn’t know Jadas crewcut was due to a medical issue.

Smith in turn likely wouldn’t react that way to Rocks same joke if Jadas haircut were simply a haircut.

It reminds me of a story, of a man who meets a young girl seated on a couch with her dress billowed up, obscuring her legs, so he says playfully, hi little girl, where are your legs…and the girl actually has no legs and starts crying at his rudeness.

Of course Smiths narcissism came into play as well especially during that speech. How embarrassing. “I’m just like the Williams father, because I resort to violence quickly over words.”

I think if she chuckled he doesn’t react like that

but once Jada gave him that look he felt he had to do something.

To project that he has it all figured out and dude has turned out to be one of the messiest dudes out there.

Like he gets up there and makes a speech about how he is a river for God when it's really that he is dude who feels like he is a butt of jokes because his wife embarrassed him.

We will hear him for weeks describing it in flowery ornate language when it's really not that deep. It's the same messy shit that goes on in so many relationships.

In response to Reply # 47


          

You basically aligned yourself with the same crackas you tried to diss. Im assuming you will add Dave Chappelle, Ricky Gervais, Larry David, etc to the list of comedians you'd like to see physically assaulted because lame simps cant take a joke. Will Smith isnt some tough guy. He's an idiot that made himself look like a lame. I guarantee if The Rock or someone bigger had made that joke Will Smith would have sat his entanglement ass in the chair and not said a word.

In response to Reply # 72


          

Alot of comedians have been complaining for years that college students have gotten so "sensitive" that they don't do college tours anymore. Chappelle's been going through it with the transgendered community for a minute now and then there's everything swirling Joe Rogan (more about his podcast than his actual standup but he's still a comedian to me).

Most of the controversies with comedy have been about comedians "punching down" on oppressed people. Rock "punched up" and got slapped. :shrug:

172. "Physical assault in response to a form of speech."
In response to Reply # 162


          

"At a campaign rally in Las Vegas, Trump said of a protester, “I’d like to punch him in the face.” As security guards escorted the protester out of the rally, Trump mocked him, saying, “He’s smiling. Having a good time.” He then reminisced about being able to get away with violence: “There’s a guy, totally disruptive, throwing punches. We’re not allowed to punch back anymore. I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out on a stretcher, folks.” Trump also called the protester “nasty as hell.” CNN reported that the man did not appear to fight with the security guards taking him outside."

the left is the side that has been looking for any slip up or word that will show a comedian is an ogre/racist/homophobe/etc

This is just Will trying to get his balls back after one too many jokes at his wife’s expense


I think Rock shitting on Jada at the Oscars when they boycotted is prolly why he snapped.. along with all that other shit with Jada. I think he was in Hollywood mode and laughed initially and then was like “oops, totally forgot that shit Jada said about Rock and his jokes”

Did you know? It seems like you didn’t.

I had no idea, I just assumed she kept her hair short because she wanted to keep it short and it wasn’t due to a health issue.

A lot of people are just assuming Chris Rock knew she had a health issue, I don’t think Rock knew.

particularly older black women. cuz the hair just gets naturally thinner with age and hormonal changes. and then the additional effects from years of hair styling, treatments, chemicals, etc.

Lost my mom to breast cancer. I still laugh at cancer jokes and so did she. Comedy is comedy and nothing is off limits. If we decided to moderate comedy, comedy would just die. Seeing people equate hair loss to some other supposed "off limits" diseases make me angry as fuck.

So black and white people are both taking this to a ridiculous level. She tried to compare Jada Pinkett and Ketanji Brown Jackson because of the importance of hair on the public stage for black women. Shit is not that deep. It was a joke.

Learning the reason for her hair definitely makes the anger make sense, except he clearly laughed at the joke.

I’m really not with anyone trying to shit on his role in their relationship, or shitting on him for defending her. But he definitely shouldn’t have done it at that time, or in that way.

If anything, he needed to talk to him about it afterward.

In response to Reply # 52


  

          

its possible, maybe even likely, that he didn't initially get that the joke was about her hair, and was just kinda laughing along politely, and it came to him, when he saw Jada's reaction, however for such a reaction, he would then have to assume that Rock knows she has a condition and is choosing to mock it.. and i don't think he had enough processing time to get there, so it seems he just overcompensated, because HE knows he has a condition and he knows he just fucked up

Plus if his whole thing is just 'keep my wife's name out your mouth', period... yeah that doesn't play either because again, he was laughing. (that's just shit you say in the moment tho)

obv he handled this thing badly, and its funny because if i had to guess, the three of them will hash this out, but it's all gonna take on a life of its own, with everything from a billion think pieces, scold tweets, and anti cancel culture stuff...with everyone from the view to ben shapiro needing to weigh in.. the whole gamut

Lot of people, myself included for a brief moment, were hammering him for laughing at first but your point about it possibly being simply a product of his being polite, processing, then reacting puts that part of the situation into the proper perspective IMO.

And I think you're also right that the above can be true, while the "he overreacted" responses to the whole thing can also be true. I stand in that line.

But ... his processing fell short when he won the oscar a half hour later and didn't apologize to CR lol. I'm sure they'll hash it out but he had enough time by then to realize he'd fucked up and should've at least acknowledged Rock in his otherwise-brutal speech.

once a nigga decides to make it work, they'll defend it from all threats, foreign or domestic. They can't risk having it backslide.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

persona just playing along, almost to the point that the actual joke didn’t register, until he saw his wife’s reaction and that broke his public persona to the point that he overreacted the other way with the slap action.

And even then, I think his public persona immediately kicked in, knowing he’d overreacted, so the damage control response was “keep my wife’s name out your…” even though he’d initially laughed at the joke.

but I can't see Chris Rock wanting to sit down, have to bite his tongue to avoid any emotional land mines from Jada and Will's perspectives, and give Jada Smith content for her Facebook show.

I have to think he'll get his jokes off about the incident when he does decide to make a public comment about the incident on his terms and move on.

That's pretty much what i've learned from this thread and looking at twitter today.

Slapping a comedian is cancel culture. Advocating for assaulting an entertainer on stage for a joke is some Trump shit. Dumb people will ABSOLUTELY try to imitate what Will Smith did if a comedian attempts to make fun of them. "Pulling a Will Smith." The Oscars are dumb hypocrites for letting him just chill and enjoy the rest of the show AND let him go up and give a dumb rambling speech about love.

and according to an early report, Will Smith was dancing the night away at a post-awards show while holding onto his Oscar.

That, on top of everything else, is some weirdo behavior IMO.

I also find it strange behavior. I know he was up for an Oscar but how he didn't just leave after smacking Chris is beyond bizarre. How did he put that shit behind him THAT fast that he stayed to get his award and then dance and sing with random people afterwards. And these same people are singing and dancing right along with him, standing ovations and shit.

The fuck is going on?

Did anybody even bother to check on Chris? lol, the fuck?

Hollywood is just too weird man.

The amount of back flips they are doing trying to co-sign what Will Smith did because its Jada Pinkett, while keeping their toxic masculinity podium adding a sentence at the end.

WTF is no one worried about him? There were no reports of him being "consoled" during breaks or anyone at the Oscars offering any support for him and he was the person who got slapped in the face on national TV.

This among everything else just shows where we are as a society. I hope comedians continue to rally around him. That was some bullshit.

....so far Lil Rel has weighed in on IG live and basically said CR wasn't funny and jive brought it on himself.

I wonder how many comics that have acting gigs will side with Will so as not to fuck up their bag vs. those who say they are about the art and will defend Chris.

But yeah, I really want to know what happened to Chris after he left the stage. I wonder if he went to any of the parties afterward or just went home.

another comic thinks a subjectively bad joke merits someone interrupting an awards show to get smacked in the face.

That's such a wrong take for so many reasons from another comic, but I suppose that's just my subjective opinion on the matter.

That's a live show
He just got embarrassed in front of his peers and broadcast to the world

That's pretty f'd up...for what amounted to a joke that fell flat

I was curious about that as well but GI Jane goes hand in hand with being a female version of GI Joe. So people may not get the exact movie reference but they get the idea of the reference. Military shaved head, GI Joe, GI Jane. My students thought it was funny.

or a woman? I think we know the answer to that. he probably also woundn't have do it to Katt, Ced, Steve, Wayne Brady.

He knew Chris aint the fighting type, especially while he was working. Will still a coward, just like he said in his book.

Let Hugh Jackman go up there and make that joke. Will would have sat there and talked about it later on Red Table while August bangs his wife some more.

I listened to the ?uestlove Supreme with Will and this didn't really surprise me in the least.

But why did it have to be so near to ?uestlove's Oscar?

For making fun of him. You're on the wrong side if you think the right aren't the ones that want comedians to shut up. Will Smith was on his Fox News with that bullshit. Him being black is what is making you think its the other way around.

In response to Reply # 119

And they'll be referencing this event for a long long time and inflating the importance of it, all the while showing video tape of two of the most respected black actor/comedians of the last 30 years involved as what they'll characterize as the normalization of black on black crime by the liberal elites.

It's a shit show.

(It's not like the right wouldn't just make something up if this didn't happen - but this is in HD - maybe even 4k.)

Why this didn't surprise me: Will Smith has been so rich and so famous for so long and is talking that (crazy to me) self help and enlightenment talk that *I feel* (without evidence) that it's a scam people run on themselves as a coping mechanism to actually suppress stuff.

A single slap here isn't the end of the world.
Will looks like he can't control his emotions.
The academy looks stupid for not ejecting him.

I'd watch a series where they all go to counseling and talk it out.

Just too mean spirited in his jokes for people who didn't come to see him.

Like the casual swipe at the dude from 15's team is the kind of thing he does that makes you wince.

Not an excuse for Will.

I do GAF about people moving goalposts though. Not every fucking argument has to be "what if they were white? or white people did it too" We need a better measuring stick than that when talking AMONGST OURSELVES. That's my fucking point. Can't we just fully discuss something before it immediately goes into the white curve.

And I am a person who loves roasts. Difference there is people sign up for it. It's what people come to see. Same with correspondence dinner.

But this just doesn't seem like the right format.

And there are ways to make fun of people that isn't necessarily mean spirited humor.


The Oscar room also seems like the weirdest room too. Like the room will go along with anything that is going on stage and laugh or support without knowing what they are doing. Like the way they gave Roman Polanski a standing ovation.

147. "I'm kinda for making fun of these people MORE"
In response to Reply # 137


  

          

a lot of these people take themselves way too seriously. if they can't laugh at themselves for a few seconds in a setting where they're spending hours congratulating each other, i think its says a lot.

i'm speaking in generalities of course. there's always a line.

but, I think that's more of the setup, with the GG. He and other hosts even roast the Hollywood Foreign Press and it's their joint.

151. "So you side with Will Smith and Sean Penn."
In response to Reply # 128


  

          

If memory serves me correct, Sean Penn wanted to run down Chris Rock over some Jude Law jokes when Chris Rock actually hosted the Oscars years ago.

I wonder how close Sean Penn got to actually being close enough to run Chris Rock down.

then brought it up when he presented. it was corny as hell.

i had heard they squashed it behind stage though. I never heard Penn wanted to fight him or anything like that though

In response to Reply # 128


          

They hired Chris Rock to be edgy for the Oscars because people complained about the vanilla-ness of it. He was just doing what they asked. I dont think he's a hurtful person. Even Gervais isnt as "viscous" as his Globes hosting. They're just doing what was asked. "Hey make it super edgy."

If white guy smacks black guy, the blow back would be worst.

If black guy smacks white guy, social media outrage might be less but career blowback might be worst.

If black guy smacks, woman, definitely bad all around.

If black woman, smacks guy. Not as bad social media, probably very bad career wise.

If white woman smacks black guy, bad social media, maybe not so much career wise.


I could be wrong but what does any of it prove or mean?

he never would've gotten to receive that Oscar.

163. "CAUGHT ON TAPE: Chris Rock Backstage After Being Slapped :-/"
In response to Reply # 0
Mon Mar-28-22 11:30 AM by CHASE SwAyZe

  

          

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGmZRWb4aj0

Post-Fight Thoughts:

1. He wouldn't have slapped Jerry Seinfeld (Career gone.)
2. Or Ellen (Hate Crime, "Domestic" Violence, Career gone.)
3. Or THE Rock (Ass totally kicked.)
4. Damn, why it gotta be two Black Men? :-/
5. "When Keepin' It Real Goes Wrong" #WWPD (What Would Pac Do?)
6. I didn't hear a "slap sound" though (Just a "Mic Bump") Hmm...
7. Did Will's hand ever *Really* connect? #SloMoCamNeeded #ALIthough :-/
8. Why they both smiling and how did Rock never rub his face?
9. They're both actors so it's probably "staged" (Will "laughed" at the joke at first...)
10. We gonna be talking about this shit for years.......

Assuming it's real, I think once Will saw Jada's face and heard the crowd's reaction, he was immediately thrown into a "Damn, I'm Never Gonna Live This Down If I Don't Get Gangsta" moment -- Which was further amplified by Rock's Oscar jokes on *Both* of them years ago. Will probably feels like he's always been living in Pac's Shadow and didn't wanna hear Jada's Mouth later, so he probably felt like "Damned if I do, Damned if I don't......" (But Damn, even *SUGE* didn't slap a n!gga at The Source Awards........) :-/

They flirted with the organization and are pretty close to other celebs who are in it. I think some of that weird, spacey, philosophical stuff they talk about may even have Scientology roots.

But they are not full-fledged, all-in Scientologists.

Pressure bust pipes man. I think we're going to see more and more of this too.

The think pieces are all over the place today and it really just comes down to a man doubling down on his decisions to ride out a very public and very open messy marriage. It's not for us to judge their love but they opened themselves up to the commentary (or comedy depending on your level of fuck it).

Im black and i teach at a school for at risk black teenagers and the amount of fights and MURDERS we have that have literally started over words is mind boggling. That mentality you have is one of the reasons black violence and death is at such a high level. Its not tough to do the shit he did and its not white people shit to not resort to violence if someone isn't physically attacking you. You're a moron.

The concept should be don't talk reckless to people who have the ability to physically assault you.

the key word is STARTED. you can't blame somebody for how they react.

I'm not saying Will is 100% right, but when Will finally snaps at jokes that you participated in, you can't go "violence isn't the answer" after niggas spent the last few years laughing at his expense

"Hey man i'm not on that white people shit. They were talking reckless so i turned it from a verbal confrontation to a physical confrontation. It's cool though, OKP said that's the black thing to do."

I take martial arts and teach my kids to defend themselves. In no world will i teach them "its some white people shit if you dont punch someone that is saying something mean to you."

Absolutely dumb logic. Mind boggling dumb, actually.

What I said was you can't blame somebody for how they react. Joking on Will and his situation was fair game but when he get fed up and react niggas is up in arms.

He could have took it on the chin like Chris did. Or he could have did what he did today. It's up to him to deal with what comes. But YOU can't throw rocks at a beehive and then denounce them for stinging you

I have HUGE respect for you and the work you do and fundamentally, I agree with what you are saying, in regards to just attacking folk...BUT, you (not you, specifically) cannot and should not expect that everyone else lives by the same creed. It's super possible that something reckless you say, could get your jaw tapped. I have two sons and that's what I teach them. Keep your hands to yourself and don't go around talking slick, because someone could go in your mouth or worse, over just words. Protect yourself at all times (c)Mills Lane...but, don't go looking for shit.

talk about a man’s wife and all bets are off.

Not saying Will is right but he straight clowned Jada at 2 Oscar awards.

Back in the day my crew had to go to juvenile court for punching a white classmate who was talking reckless about a friends dead parent. His mom told a room full of Black parents his kid can say whatever he wants.. all our parents were like “and he can get phucked up too”

Disrespect was met with a light correction, not actual physical harm. No more no less.

That wasn't the Hood when he was growing up in the 60s, 70s and early 80s.

I actually think Chris Rock is one of the most down-to-earth people in Hollywood. He's like a regular person who happens to be famous, understand the concept of everyday, working class people feeling completely separate from the "rich" and seems to relate more to the former. Will doesn't seem like that kind of person to me. He's disconnected. This is why he'll say shit like "just make a decision and your life will change." Whereas Chris Rock would say something along the lines of your bills not stopping because of a decision.

I say that to say them niggas not about to kick it like that over beers. Will gon talk some fake deep spiritual shit about the power of love and healing and Chris gon talk the reality of his jaw healing from that slap.

In response to Reply # 0

is to too roast the audience. Everyone knows that.

What Will Smith did was unprofessional and inhumane, and he deserves
a serious asswhooping.

You don’t slap or touch someone over an award show, especially an
award show that is designed to poke fun at its members.

The Oscars used to be a show and award of substance, but now its
just as insignificant as all the other award shows.

Slapping a man is a very demeaning act, and it is worse than a punch.
Much respect to Chris Rock for continuing on with the show, and making sure
that Questlove was properly honored.

If I were an entertainer I would best the shit out of him for Chris. A dude focked
your wife in your own bed, and you did nothing but look like a punk at a red
table....

If I’m Rock, I’m getting a Netflix deal and just going all in on Will and Jada and airing out all of their corny shit in a comedy special.

Hosts/MCs have always roasted or made fun of stars at award shows...

That was Joan Rivers entire routine when hosting award shows.


Here is Steve Martin and Baldwin roasting Meryl Streep at the oscars
about having threesomes and hitler memorabilia. ...Yeah, because
“white people take the oscars seriously”...lol

https://youtu.be/kBZj7qIOAE8

They even made fun of Lebron’s hairline last night at the Oscars.


You guys probably never heard of Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Don Rickles,
Carol Burnett, etc.....master roasters.

People love to make up stuff to support their narrative in this era.
