Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars 2022 after he cracked a joke about Jada Pinkette Smith
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have the craziest relationship. At one point Smith is slapping people who are making fun of his wife, and in another moment he is seen arguing with his beloved partner. The odd relationship has always caught everyone’s attention and now a resurfaced 2019 video of Smith telling Jada to stop ‘using’ him is going viral on the internet.
In the 49-second long clip, Will is seen giving a stern warning to his wife saying, “Don’t use me” for influence. The video starts with Jada recording a video for her Instagram Live to promote her chat show Red Table Talk. She starts by saying, “You know [therapist] Esther Perel is coming to the table — she’s gonna be at the Red Table,” and shifts the camera to Smith.
She asked her husband, “Would you say she has been instrumental in you and I redefining our relationship?”
Irritated by the question, he says, “I would say don’t just start filming me without asking me.” She ignores the brush off and continues by telling viewers that she is “still dealing with foolishness.” She then goes on to ask, “Would you say that she [Perel] helped us heal the hurts that we caused between one another?”
Finally losing his calm, Will snaps back and says, “My social media presence is my bread and butter. So you can’t just use me for social media. Don’t just start rolling; I’m standing in my house. Don’t start rolling.” The newly resurfaced video has sparked speculation with people concerned about Smith’s marriage. Many fans are claiming that the actor looks “uncomfortable” and “anxious” as he speaks with his wife.
Earlier, a petition was started by a user named Dexter Morales to stop Will Smith And Jada Pinkett Smith from giving interviews. Morales did not reveal his reason for springing the petition, but 2,500 and counting signatories agreed with him. People have also expressed their resentment towards the celebrity couple for their tendency to be so open about their personal lives and share even the most eccentric details of their life with the audience.
