Nicki Minaj, an American rapper, has expressed her dissatisfaction with the Academy Awards and Chris Rock’s remark about Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald hairdo, which resulted in a slap from Will Smith.
“Jada, I love you,” Chris Rock, comedian and host of Friday night’s Oscars, exclaimed as he presented the trophy for best documentary.
“Can’t wait to see G.I. Jane 2, all right?”
His remark alluded to the 1990s action film G.I. Jane, which featured a bald female soldier.
Will Smith stormed the Oscars stage violently to smack Chris Rock in favor of his wife, Jada, who is suffering from alopecia, an auto-immune disorder that has caused her hair to fall out.
“Wow, Will Smith just smacked the shit out of me,” Chris exclaimed, taken aback by Will’s response.
“Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth,” Smith yelled.
Nicki Minaj responded to the altercation by claiming that if Chris Rock had known about Jada Pinkett’s situation, he would not have made a joke about her.
She took to Twitter to write:
”I love Chris Rock. I don’t think he would’ve made that joke had he known what Jada recently shared- but between him & the whole team @ the #Oscars you mean to tell me not ONE of y’all heard this woman just share this heartbreaking story?#ComeOnSon
”The husband gets a front row seat to his wife’s pain… he’s the 1 consoling her… drying her tears behind closed doors when those cameras go off. Social media has made ppl feel that these “husbands” won’t ever run into them in real life.
”You just got to witness in real time what happens in a man’s soul when he looks over to the woman he loves & sees her holding back tears from a “little joke” at her expense. This is what any & every real man feels in that instant. while y’all seeing the joke he’s seeing her pain
”Imagine what it must feel like to be losing your hair to the point where you have to shave it bald. You think that’s easy to deal with for anyone? You don’t think she’s cried about that many times? 2022 y’all gon have to see these men about those jokes you made about their wives.”
