Jada Will Didnt Want Defending
Jada Pinkett Smith "wishes" Will Smith "didn't" slap Chris Rock at Oscars 2022.

It was a slap heard around the world! Will Smith is currently embroiled in a major controversy after he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars 2022 because the latter cracked a joke at Jada Pinkett Smith's expense. But how does Jada actually feel about her husband defending her? According to a US Weekly, The Matrix Resurrections star isn't "angry with" Will. However, she "wishes he didn't get" physical with Chris.

A source informed the publication that Smith slapping Rock "was in the heat of the moment" and that he "overreacted," of which the couple are in complete "agreement." Moreover, the insider disclosed that Jada didn't want Will to get in an altercation to defend her as "she's not one of these women that needs protecting. He didn't need to do what he did, she didn't need protecting. She's not a wallflower." Infact, "she's a strong woman, an opinionated woman and she can fight her own battles. But she will stand by him."

Meanwhile, Will has publicly apologised to Chris and recently resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences. The Academy accepted Smith's resignation and will continue to move forward with its disciplinary proceedings against the actor for violating the Academy's Standards of Conduct, which will be in advance of their next scheduled board meeting on April 18.

For the unversed, Will Smith won his first-ever Academy Award in the Best Actor category for King Richard.

Of course that's what she says NOW. She gave him a look after the joke, she didn't even lay a hand to try to restrain him, and she laughed after he did it. Sure looked like she was happy with what he did.

Ok so if she did not want him to do it why did she not try to stop him? instead she laughed her cabooty off when he assaulted that man. No Jada not this time honey.

Will Smith is an entitled Brat with first world problems - and quite honestly he is getting away with assault! If anyone else had done that, they would have been physically removed from the building and would have spent the night in jail (at the very least). I have never liked Will Smith and this just adds to my utter disgust of this narcissistic dishing.

Will should not have slapped him in front of everyone. He could deal with it verbally backstage. If Chris did not apologise even after that then he deserves a slap. He made fun of one of the hardest part in Jada's life. Only people who experienced it can understand it

Smith wasn't protecting his wife -- he was letting out frustration over being made a cuckold by the woman he loves (a woman who is a seriously unstable personality). What's more, what Will Smith calls defending family is known to those with common sense as assault & battery. But if the guy who told the joke was a big as "the Rock" instead of the petite-sized Chris Rock, you can bet your life the slap would never have happened.
