Lavell Crawford has also shared his two cents on the Will Smith-Chris Rock slap at the 2022 Oscars and let everyone know what he would have done to Will Smith if he was Chris Rock.
According to Lavell Crawford, he would have put nine in Will Smith’s a** via Vlad;
Despite the controversy surrounding Rock’s joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith and the slap that followed, comedian Lavell Crawford took it upon himself to address the matter, saying what he would have done if he was in Chris Rock’s shoes.
During a comedy set, Crawford came out to Will Smith’s “Gettin Jiggy Wit It” and then proceeded to go in on the Oscars slap for the next five minutes. After making a joke about Pinkett-Smith’s alopecia, he then questioned the couple’s relationship.
Towards the end of his set, Crawford said he was tired of people saying Smith loved Jada based on his gesture, a thought he questioned. Crawford went on to say, “If I was Chris Rock, I would have put nine in his a**.”
Meanwhile, Will is silently struggling.
And now, as the incident is officially one week in the rearview, Smith is starting to see tangible repercussions following his actions at the Academy Awards—as in, ones that are going to hurt his bottom line. Smith’s upcoming Netflix film Fast and Loose has reportedly slowed production, per The Hollywood Reporter. The film, which had already lost its director prior to Smith’s altercation, was supposedly reprioritized following the Oscars. (It’s not hard to imagine that it would be ramped up in priority had the evening passed without Smith’s outburst.) Smith was set to star in the film, which told “the story of a crime boss who loses his memory after an attack.”
That news comes on the heels of another one of Smith’s projects derailments. Also according to The Hollywood Reporter, Smith was recently given the first 40 or so pages of the script for Bad Boys 4, but that production has also been slowed for the time being.
