The Will Smith slap incident was an unfortunate occurrence for everyone involved. Some people place the blame on Chris Rock, for making a disrespectful and insensitive joke towards Will Smith’s wife – while they sat in the front row at the Oscars. Many others however blame Will, for not showing self control and attacking Chris on television.
But what is clear in all of this is one person who should NOT be blamed . . . is Jada Pinkett-Smith.
Unfortunately the narrative surrounding the incident is quickly changing, and MTO News uncovered that more and more people – especially comedians – are inexplicably blaming Jada for the Oscar’s fiasco.
Last night, Bill Maher (who has increasingly been moving toward right-wing commentary) blasted Jada – and placed the blame squarely on her.

Bill Maher addressed the Oscars controversy in his show on Friday, saying that Jada Pinkett Smith should ‘thank God’ that alopecia is her biggest medical concern.
‘If you are so lucky in life as to have that be your medical problem, just say ‘thank God,” the HBO Real Time host explained.
‘It’s not life threatening. It’s part of — for most people, 80 percent of men, 50 percent of women — it’s part of aging,’ Maher continued.
He added, “‘You know, just put on a f***ing wig like everybody else at the Oscars if it bothers you so much,’ Bill told the audience.
Of course Bill is dead wrong. Jada suffers from alopecia areata, a hair-loss autoimmune disorder which is distinct from androgenic alopecia, the pattern baldness that often accompanies aging in many men, and some women.
And comedian Jim Carrey is doing the same thing. Initially he blamed Will for the attack.
“I was sickened, I was sickened by the standing ovation,” Carrey said on CBS Mornings earlier this week. “I felt like Hollywood is just spineless en masse and it really felt like this is a really clear indication that we’re not the cool club anymore.”
Now Jim appears to be turning his ire on Jada. In a new interview the comedian said, “Jada’s a tough girl. She can defend herself. She wasn’t being physically attacked.”
Comedian Corey Holcomb is also joining the “blame Jada” parade. Corey blamed Jada Pinkett Smith for Will Smith slapping Chris Rick at the Oscars, calling the actress a “evil, wicked b***h who f**ked his son’s friend.”
Given his take on the drama at the 94th Academy Awards, Holcomb mocked Smith’s wife while defending Chris and his tasteless joke.
