Jada Doesn't Give 'Two Craps' What People Think Of Her Bald Head

Jada Doesn't Give 'Two Craps' What People Think Of Her Bald Head

The actor's husband smacked Chris Rock over a joke about her hair during the Oscars

Jada Pinkett Smith says she doesn't give 'two craps' what people think of her bald head.

The actor's husband, Will Smith, hit the headlines this week when he stormed the stage at the Oscars ceremony and slapped Chris Rock after he joked about Jada's alopecia.

Rock was presenting an award when he decided to have a joke with the star-studded audience, largely at their expense.

But one of his barbed comments was not welcomed by either Jada, who was visibly miffed, or the Men In Black star.

Listen to what Jada had to say below:

It all went wrong when Rock made a 'G.I. Jane 2' joke about Jada.

"Jada, I love you. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see you," he said.

At first, Will appeared to laugh it off while Jada rolled her eyes, but he then walked onto the stage and smacked the comedian.

After returning to his seat, Will was heard shouting back at Rock, saying: "Keep my wife’s name out your f***ing mouth."

Since the bizarre outburst, people have been divided over the 53-year-old's actions, with some praising him for standing by his wife and defending her honour.

However, in a video shared to TikTok just a few days before the Oscars, Jada opened up about issues she's had with her hair over the years, and the battle she had with having to deal with European stereotypes.

She also said that she was proud of how she looks now, adding: "I feel the freedom today. I don't give two craps what people think of this bald head of mine.

"Because guess what? I love it."

Following the incident on Sunday, March 27, Will apologised for his behaviour.

During his acceptance speech, he apologised to ‘the Academy’ and his ‘fellow nominees’ but didn’t mention Rock. 

He said: "I want to apologise to the Academy. I want to apologise to all my fellow nominees.

"Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father, just like they said. I look like the crazy father just like they said about Richard Williams but love will make you do crazy things."

He has since released a statement in which he has apologised directly to Rock, saying he was ‘out of line’ and that his behaviour was ‘unacceptable’. 

In the lengthy post shared to Instagram, the actor wrote: "Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behaviour at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. 

"I would like to publicly apologise to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.

"I would also like to apologise to the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world.

"I would like to apologise to the Williams Family and my King RichardFamily. I deeply regret that my behaviour has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us. I am a work in progress."
