Jada Pinkett-Smith hasn’t lost anything since she gave her husband Will Smith that, made him act like some sort of attack dog that reacts to no verbal commands, and smacked Chris Rock.
Unfortunately for Smith, he has lost a lot, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
Here is a breakdown.
Fast and Loose Netflix Director David Leitch departed the project ahead of the Oscars; Netflix began searching for a new director but moved the film to the back burner after The Slap. Bright 2 Netflix Netflix quickly ordered a sequel to Smith’s fantasy-action flick Bright after its debut in December 2017. However, Bloomberg’s Lucas Shaw reported in April 2022 that the streamer had canceled the sequel for reasons unrelated to The Slap before the Oscars. The Council Netflix Smith has been attached to star in this crime drama since 2019, but little news of the project has surfaced since the initial announcement. It’s unclear whether the film remains in active pre-production or has stalled. Bad Boys 4 Sony A fourth “Bad Boys” entry was in active development before the Oscars but has reportedly been put on hold. Emancipation Apple Currently in post-production, the Antoine Fuqua-directed drama was set for a 2022 release but is expected to be pushed to next year. Pole to Pole Nat Geo In May, Smith was to begin shooting a new series for National Geographic, exploring the North and South poles. After The Slap, production was pushed back to the fall, per Bloomberg.
Will has chosen not to speak publicly about the slap, which is the right move. We live in a society that moves on quickly. While people are still talking about the slap, it isn’t the same as a month ago.
Will is betting by the time the summer rolls around, people will have moved on and be more in a position of forgiveness.
The one thing I would advise Will to do is try to make a public appearance with Chris Rock. If Rock forgives him publicly, I think this all blows over.
Flip the pages for all the times Jada has embarrassed him.
