The incident of being slapped by Will Smith was an unfortunate incident for all involved. Some people blamed Chris Rock for acting disrespectfully and making fun of Will Smith’s wife – while the two sat in the front row at the Oscars. Others blamed Will, for not showing self-control, and attacked Chris.
But what is clear in all of this is that a person should NOT be blamed. . . and that’s Jada Pinkett-Smith.
Unfortunately, the story surrounding the incident is rapidly changing, and MTO News discovered that a growing number of people – especially comedians – are confusingly blaming Jada for the Oscar failure.
Last night, Bill Maher (who is increasingly leaning towards right-wing commentary) criticized Jada – and blamed her.

Bill Maher addresses Oscar controversy on his show Friday, saying Jada Pinkett Smith should ‘thank God’ that hair loss is her biggest medical concern.
The HBO Realtime host explained: ‘If you’re lucky enough to have your medical problems, just say ‘thank God’.
‘It’s not life-threatening. It’s part of – for most people, 80% of men, 50% of women – it’s part of aging,’ Maher continued.
He added, “‘You know, just wear a wig like everyone else at the Oscars if that bothers you too much,'” Bill told the audience.
Of course Bill was wrong. Jada has alopecia areata, an autoimmune disorder caused by hair loss that is different from androgenic alopecia, a pattern of male pattern baldness that often accompanies the aging process in many men and some women.
And comedian Jim Carrey is doing the same thing. He initially blamed Will for the attack.
Carrey told CBS Mornings earlier this week: “I’m sick, I’m sick of the standing ovation. “I feel like Hollywood just has no backbone and it really feels like this is a really clear sign that we’re not the great club anymore.”
Now Jim seems to be opposing Jada. In a new interview, the comedian said: “Jada is a tough girl. She can defend herself. She’s not physically attacked.”
Comedian Corey Holcomb also joined the “blame Jada” march. Corey blamed Jada Pinkett Smith for Will Smith slapping Chris Rick at the Oscars, calling the actress “the evil, evil person who killed his son’s friend.”
Staring in the film at the 94th Academy Awards, Holcomb taunted Smith’s wife while defending Chris.
Hey people. . . Jada is NOT to blame for what happened.
