Steve Harvey says he lost a lot of respect for Will Smith after he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars for joking about his wife Jada Pinkett’s bald head. Steve says Will’s move was ‘Punk Move’.
According to Yahoo Entertainment;
It’s been two months since Will Smith and Chris Rock’s infamous encounter at the 94th Annual Academy Awards. Since then, many celebrities, have shared their thoughts on the situation, with Harvey being the latest to speak out on the televised fiasco.
In addition to sharing that he does not support Will Smith’s behavior at this year’s Oscars, the veteran comedian also slammed the Oscar award-winning actor for delivering that slap to Chris Rock, which he called a “punk move.”
During the speaking engagement, Steve Harvey didn’t hold back his feelings toward the slap heard around the world. The Family Feud host admitted that though he is a devote Christian, he doesn’t believe his Christianity would have been enough to react rationally had he been in Chris Rock’s shoes the night of the Oscars.
“I’m a Christian, but I’m really undeveloped. I don’t have high-level Christianity. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’m like a 2. That’s the level of Christianity I can work on,” Harvey said. “You slap T.D. Jakes, he’ll turn the other cheek. You slap me? If you sit back in your seat, Jada [Will’s wife] would have to move out of the way. That’s the type of Christian I am.”
It should be noted that every comedian who has spoken on this topic has condemned Smith. Even the ones he has been friends with for years. The reason is you never embarrass another black man like that publicly. Smith broke the code and everyone knows why. Jada Pinkett controls him like a puppet and it is sad to see. Hopefully, Smith can finally detach himself from that toxicity.
