Zoe Kravitz has chosen a side in the Will Smith and Chris Rock Oscars drama. She threw some shade at Will Smith who stormed on stage and slapped Chris after making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald head after opening up about her struggles with alopecia. The Batman star uploaded a pic of her at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party rocking a sleek white gown with a plunging keyhole, which can be seen here.
“and here is a picture of my dress at the party after the award show -where we are apparently screaming profanities and assaulting people on stage now,” she captioned the pic, referencing Will’s behavior. It’s clear that she’s team Chris for this one. She certainly isn’t the first celeb to react to Chris and Will’s feud and likely won’t be the last.
Jabari Banks, who plays Will’s character in the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot, weighed in on the slap heard around the world while talking EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife. “I have mixed feelings about it. The number one rule in Hollywood is that women and children you stay clear of. He took a vow and that was to stand up for his Jada and that is what he did,” he told HL. “For better or for worse, he stood up from Jada.”
Will definitely has some celebs in his corner. 50 Cent weighed in on the matter on Instagram, defending Will. Additionally, immediately after the incident, Denzel Washington and Bradley Cooper went over to the King Richard star to check on him and console him. Shortly after the slap, Will had to reappear on stage and accept his award for Best Actor.
Will has since apologized for smacking the Everybody Hates Chris star. “My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable,” he penned in an Instagram post. “Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.” He added, “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive.” The Academy has announced that it’ll be reviewing the incident and determining whether any further action is required.
