Yeah you heard that right.
If you haven’t been watching the Academy Awards today, things got very heated!
As Chris Rock presented the Best Documentary category, he made a joke about Will Smith’s wife; Jada Pinkett-Smith making a G.I Jane 2 movie. This is a reference to her being bald. It’s unclear whether Rock knew that Pinkett-Smith has Alopecia, a condition that results in hair loss.
Watch the interaction below:
