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."
