Backstory of what happened in Oscars 2022

Back during the event, when Will Smith abruptly got up and slapped Chris Rock in front of the entire crowd on Oscar night due to Chris’s tease comment on Will Smith’s wife, which got the audience divided, some agreed and appreciated Will Smith for standing up for his wife, while others spoke about how violence can never be an answer.

It's been reported by PEOPLE that a source close to the actress reported that Jada Pinkett has no involvement in the feud that has happened between Husband Smith and Chris Rock.

 Though she was the reason why Will Smith took the toll over Chris Rock on the Oscar stage, which put Will in the spotlight and has been a matter of discussion ever since.

Chris Rock is ‘obsessed’ with Jada Pinkett Smith; the latter ‘had no part’ in his feud with Will Smith

Jada Pinkett Smith, Chris Rock’s live show:

 According to a source, Jada Pinkett Smith had no involvement in the dispute between Smith and Rock, and Chris has been obsessed with her for 30 years.

In 2016, Jada started a movement by raising the issue of colour discrimination at the Academy Awards. On why there are fewer black members and more white members.

In support for black actors, she fuelled the movement, which went with the hashtag "#OscarsSoWhite." In addition, Will Smith was eliminated from contention for Best Actor for his outstanding performance in Concussion, which is when Jada told Chris that he should stop attending the Oscars. Rock addressed this during his stand-up special by mentioning that since Will wasn't nominated for a concussion, ‘I shouldn't be hosting for him’, ‘but he has the right to give me a f—-ing concussion.’

The counterclaim from the source is that Jada never requested Chris to host the Oscars. At the time, she stated in a Facebook post that Chris would make a fantastic Oscars host and was ideal for the position.


But Chris seems to be going in the wrong direction as he mentioned that Jada deserves to be made fun of considering she was the one who started everything and her husband, Will Smith, reacted to it.

"I did some jokes about her. Who gives a f---? That's how it is: She starts it, I finish it," Rock said. "That's what the f--- happened. Nobody's pickin' on this bitch. She started this s---. Nobody was pickin' on her."


Sources claim that they were startled at how many times Chris used the term bitch in reference to Jada. Which was marked as a sign of unprofessionalism.

But in spite of all that Jada Pinkett Smith has no roleplay in the feud that went down between Rock and her husband, Will. As she is more focused on her book, which will be launched by the end of this year.

Yeah let\'s just ignore the mental abuse Jada causes her own husband. She\'s a toxic human being and she might as well have grabbed Will\'s hand and slapped Chris with it.
