In his new Netflix standup special, American comedian Chris Rock blasted Hollywood pair Jada Pinkett Smith and husband Will Smith, ridiculing Will Smith for his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s infamous “entanglement” with her son’s friend August Alsina- and the couple’s public talk about the affair.
“Will Smith practices selective outrage,” Rock informed his audience in the program “Chris Rock: Selective Outrage,” in which he discussed being smacked by Smith on the Academy Awards stage last year.
“Practices selective outrage. ‘Cause everybody knows what the f— happened. Everybody that really knows, knows I had nothing to do with that s—. I didn’t have any entanglements,” he said.
“And for people that don’t know what everybody know(s)… his wife was f—ing her son’s friend, OK? Now, I normally would not talk about this s— but for some reason, these n—– put that s— on the Internet.”
Will Smith was upset, according to Chris Rock, because his wife admitted to having a “entanglement,” or romance, with another man.
Pinkett Smith grudgingly admitted her relationship with the rapper in a talk with Smith on “Red Table Talk” in 2021, after previously denied rumours of an affair with family friend August Alsina.
“I got into a different kind of ‘entanglement’ with August,” the actress revealed, while also admitting she and Smith were separated at the time. She further clarified, “It was a relationship, absolutely.”
“I have no idea why two talented people would do something that f—— low-down,” Rock continued during his Netflix standup. “What the f—? We’ve all been cheated on. Everybody in here [has] been cheated on. None of us have ever been interviewed by the person that cheated on us on television.
“Why the f— would you do that s—? She hurt him way more than he hurt me. OK,” he told the crowd.

Rock admitted that when the news broke about the couple, he tried to reach out to Smith.
“I tried to call the motherf—– and give him my condolences – he ain’t pick up for me. Everybody called that man a b—-…They called his wife a predator. Everybody called him a b—-. Everybody! Everybody! And who’s he hit? Me.”
Smith famously stormed the Oscar stage in 2022, slapped comedian Chris Rock across the face after he made a joke about Pinkett Smith’s bald head. She is afflicted with alopecia.
As soon as he sat down, he roared at Rock, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f—-ing mouth!”
Smith’s first Academy Award win for his depiction of Richard Williams in “King Richard” was overshadowed by the violent scene.
“So then I do some jokes about her, who gives a f—. That’s how it is. She starts it, I finish it. That’s what the f— happened. Nobody’s picking on this b—-. She started this s—. Nobody is picking on her…. And then this n—- gives me a f—ing concussion.”
Rock mentioned Pinkett Smith during his opening monologue at the 2016 Oscars. “Jada became enraged and stated that she would not be present… Isn’t she on a television show? Jada’s boycott of the Oscars is akin to my boycott of Rihanna’s pants. I had not been invited.”
Rock revealed throughout his standup that he had always been a fan of Smith, making this situation all the more strange.
“He’s made some great movies. I have rooted for Will Smith my whole life, I root for this motherf——…and now I watch ‘Emancipation’ just to see him get whooped. Got me rooting for master,” Rock said of Smith’s new film, where Smith plays a man escaping slavery.
“A lot of people go ‘Chris, how come you didn’t do nothing back?’… ‘Cause I got parents, that’s why. ‘Cause I was raised. I’ve got parents. And you know what my parents taught me? Don’t fight in front of White people,” he said, before literally dropping the mic.

Finally, Chris Rock has his say and he did not hold back.
His Netflix special is epic!
He eviscerated "woke" & cancel culture, as well as Mr. & Mrs. Will & Jada Pinkett Smith.
He definitely did not keep Will's wife's name out of his "f**king" mouth 😀
