Marlon Wayans has waded into the Will Smith-Chris Rock slap at the Oscars. Even though it’s a bit late but he still chipped in his two cents on the dying matter. According to Marlons, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock put his wife Jada’s name in everybody’s mouth.
And it’s true, everyone had an opinion about Jada Pinkett after Will Smith slapped Chris Rock to please her via Vlad;
“If somebody’s walking up on my stage, I know that you ain’t coming up to give me five,” he said at the 19:30 mark. “Like, at a point, you gotta go, ‘Oh yeah he’s trying to come harm me.’ … You gotta protect yourself. If it that was me, I got an elbow for you. It’s a fight, you come on my stage we fighting. … We do jokes, that’s what we do. You don’t go to a comedy show and be mad when they tell you jokes, that’s what you there for. I think people in they right mind know better, I don’t think people gonna go, ‘I’m gonna get up and slap you.’”
“I thought someone put something in my weed,” he said. “I think the pressure of 30 years of being excellent, that’s hard to do. That man just snapped. You gotta check on your strong friends. […] Something was wrong for him to snap, and forget about what he’s been working towards for 30 years.”
Marlon added that he reached out to Will to offer up some advice. “I was like, ‘Hey brother you may want to go get you about three hours of therapy,’” he said. “15 hours this week, you need to sit down with a therapist and have a long talk. Something is going on with you.’ And that wasn’t him. See, I don’t have that kind of pressure. He’s been Black excellence for 30 years, I’ve been Black alrightness, ain’t too much pressure. … People expect me to do dumb stuff, but him? Nah, not Will.”
He also said that he hit up Chris Rock to check on him after the incident. “I talk about it a little bit in my set. I’m not gonna go all the way there, but I think that by trying to take your name out of one person’s mouth, now you put your wife’s name in everybody’s mouth. … Comedians are terrorists… [Now] everybody got a Will Smith-Chris Rock, you know, Jada joke.”
