Will Smith, Chris Rock Oscars 2022: Jaden Smith shares surprising tweet after actor’s Oscars altercation


Jaden Smith has seemingly backed his father Will Smith in the wake of the actor’s Oscars altercation with Chris Rock

Hours after his famous dad slapped the comedian on stage after he served up a joke about Will’s wife and Jaden’s mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, the 23-year-old weighed in on Twitter.

“And That’s How We Do It,” Jaden tweeted to his eight million followers.

It’s not known if Jaden was referring to his dad’s subsequent Best Actor win for his role in King Richard or the moment he slapped Rock on the face after joking about Jada’s hair, but his tweet has left the internet divided.

“Yeah I’m sorry you’re assaulting a man who’s WHOLE CAREER is making jokes. You know, those things we aren’t supposed to take seriously at all? The things that help deal with the awfulness of life in general sometimes?” one critic tweeted. “Extremely unprofessional of Will.”

Meanwhile, another was not impressed with Jaden’s remark.

“You assault comedians for telling bad lazy jokes on live television? What kind of example is violence?” the user tweeted. “That outburst by Will was embarrassing. Your Dad should apologize, not be celebrated.”

However, others felt Will was simply defending Jada and had every right to lash out, given the actress suffers from the condition alopecia, a symptom of which is hair loss.

“nah I think will reacted the right way. chris disrespected jada and her condition and he defended his wife,” one wrote on Twitter. “chris knew he was in the wrong and deserved that, that’s why he didn’t fight back.”

Another agreed: “Chris Rock deserved that. Jada has alopecia, which is publicly known. Would people think it’s okay to make fun of a cancer patient for being bald? I’m glad Will Smith came to his wife’s defence.”
