Popular Hollywood actress, Jada Pinkett Smith has come out to react to being bashed by the public over her estranged husband, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony. She recently had her say during an interview with People, and fans have been reacting.
According to her, it was simply ridiculous how far the criticism went because it was always clear she was made an easy target for blame because of a misconception.
Jada added that she was so sure Will Smith wouldn’t hit Chris on stage until it actually happened.
Her words, “But I also understood at the same time. Considering the false narrative that I had cheated on Will or I was like some adulteress, Will had never done that before.
I think that when we just look at human nature… when you look at the breadcrumbs, people need something to blame.
And so people not knowing what was happening behind the scenes, I surely wasn’t surprised that I got blamed. But I understood that that’s just the human nature of it all.
I was like, There’s no way that Will hit him. It wasn’t until Will started to walk back to his chair that I even realized it wasn’t a skit.”
