Jaden Smith Speaks Out After Dad Will Smith Slaps Chris Rock at Oscars

Jaden took to Twitter, where he seemingly addressed the incident.

Jaden Smith is speaking out after his father, Will Smith's, shocking moment at the 2022 Oscars. Jaden took to Twitter after his dad won the Oscar for Best Actor, following the incident where he slapped comedian Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife, and Jaden's mother, Jada Pinkett Smith.

"And That’s How We Do It," the 23-year-old tweeted.

Poking fun at Jada's hair, Rock, who was presenting at the 94th annual Academy Awards joked, "Jada, I love ya. G.I. Jane 2, can't wait to see it."

The quip prompted Jada to roll her eyes, but Rock quickly defended the crack at Jada's appearance, saying it was "a nice [joke]," despite being met with some uncomfortable reaction from the audience.

It wasn't long after that Will made his way onto the stage, shocking the chuckling comedian and the world, with an open-handed slap to his cheek. "Oh, wow," he immediately reacted, as Will walked offstage.

The sound on the Oscars broadcast suddenly cut out after Rock said Will's name in reaction. And as the camera panned back to Will's seat, though there was no sound, you could clearly read what the King Richard actor shouted at Rock.

"Leave my wife's name out of your f**king mouth," Will yelled back at the comedian.

Rock's G.I. Jane joke may have hit a nerve for the couple, as Jada has spoken publicly about having alopecia, a hair loss condition for which she was diagnosed with in 2018.

And it's not the first time Rock has made a joke at Jada's expense either.  At the 2016 Academy Awards, which Rock hosted, Pinkett Smith was mocked by the comedian in his opening monologue.

Rock skewered the actress, joking, "Jada said she's not coming. I was like, 'Isn't she on a TV show? Jada's gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties. I wasn't invited!'"

Will addressed the controversial incident not long after when he won the Best Actor Oscar for King Richard. Will, who was visibly emotional as he took the stage to accept the honor, did not directly apologize to Rock, but he did offer an apology to the Academy. 

"I want to apologize to the Academy. I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees," he said during a moment in his emotional speech, adding that "love makes you do crazy things."

At the end of his speech, Smith did add a dose of humor. "I'm hoping that the Academy invites me back," he said through tears as he let out a chuckle.

While that remains to be seen, ET has learned that Rock is not pressing charges against the actor at the moment, with the LAPD stating, "The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report."
