On March 27, 2022, during the 94th Academy Awards something shocking happened. After Chris Rock, a famous comedian, made a comment about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Smith, Will came onstage and slapped Chris. “Jada, I love you – I can’t wait for GI Jane 2” was the comment made by Chris. Jada had shaved her head due to a disease called Alopecia. Alopecia is a type of hair loss which can be caused by the immune system attacking hair follicles, causing hair to fall out. There are many theories on why Will slapped him. Maybe he was just standing up for his wife. Or, he just lashed out without thinking. Whatever the case was, it shocked many. What do you think? Was it appropriate for Will Smith to slap Chris Rock?
