Comedians on If Jada Pinkett Has Them More Concern People Will Slap Them Like Will Smith Did Chris Rock

Alonzo Bodden has shared his two cents on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars to please his wife Jada Pinkett after he joked about her bald head.

According to Alonzo, Will Smith’s Oscar’s slap is ‘the ultimate outlier situation’. The News got more;

Alonzo Bodden shared his thoughts about the future safety of comedians during a panel Thursday at Tribeca Festival, saying: “I’m not going to get slapped on stage,” he said.

“That (Will Smith slap) is the ultimate outlier situation. At the comedy clubs, we are still talking and still doing comedy, so nobody is going to a club and worried about that happening,” he added.

Meanwhile, comedian-host-director W. Kamau Bell claimed a Black Carrot Top could never exist. “You can be a white comedian and never talk about what’s going on in the world.”

“But it’s pretty hard to be a Black comedian and never talk about what’s going on in the world without the crowd being like ‘Where’s this dude from?’ A Black Carrot Top would have to be like, ‘I know I’m making fun of these hangers, but also, Black Lives Matter.’ So, whether you want to or not, there’s pressure as a Black person in America if you have a platform. Sometimes you have to say something,” Bell told the audience.

Chris Rock has moved on from the situation and won’t be manipulated by Jada Pinkett like Will Smith has been over the years.

Rock declined to address the matter at his standup events, leaving the door open for everyone from Ricky Gervais to Shaquille O’Neal to weigh in on what happened… and what happens next. Well, following a call from Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, for Chris Rock and Smith to “talk this out and reconcile,” the former SNL star and mainstream comic has let his feelings be known. Basically, Smith shouldn’t be sitting by his phone.

While Chris Rock remains silent on the matter – at least in the public eye – a source close to Rock told ET Online the following:

He’s not concerned with the Smiths at the moment. He’s touring and he’s preparing for a comedy special.

As well he should. One of the healthiest ways to work through a very public event like that would be to keep working. And for Chris Rock, thankfully, he had a comedy tour on his schedule following the Academy Awards, so he was able to get right back into his comfort zone – namely, being on a stage and making jokes. And, hopefully, not getting struck by an audience member for the words that he uses.

Flip to the next page for all the times that Jada has made Will look like a fool.
