Bear in mind Chris Rock punched down on Jada over her alopecia situation. All of the deflecting he’s doing citing entanglements is gaslighting. He is aware of that the world hates a Black girl with sexual company, so he has to make that the subject, not how he violated and humiliated her.

That final quarter-hour have been BRUTAL…. and never in a great way. I discovered it tasteless, and like Dave Chappelle’s final particular, he got here out with an agenda and punch down. Calling Jada a b*tch is completely uncalled for… and “entanglements” was such a low-blow.#ChrisRock

Some are additionally defending the Smiths’ determination to have an open relationship and the injustice of Pinkett Smith getting blamed for King Richard star’s actions. 

The quantity of sexism, racism, and misogynoir Jada Pinkett Smith receives is so telling. When a well-known man cheats on his feminine associate with a youthful girl, nobody cares. That’s regular. However folks assume she’s emasculating her husband, and that’s apparently unforgivable.
