Jada ROARED with laughter. Will ROARED with laughter.

So, that is why I call BS on everyone defending Smith's unhinged assault of Chris Rock.

.... cruel that a person commits any order of escalated violence on another human being

In a court case I'd put money on it that Smiths even uncomfortable laughter would negate "mitigating circumstances" in sentencing.

If he was mad enough to slap he should've been mad enough not to laugh ... AT ALL

Wondering if it's workable.

In any case, probably inadvisable to broadcast it...seems like it could put inordinate stress on a marriage. I feel like Smith's meteoric mood shift and violent reaction in that moment may have had some external triggers..

They've had an open marriage for a long time, and he is a "cuck" -- he likes to watch women and other men fuck his wife. She is open about fucking her son's friends.

90% of the time. My partner and I have been in an open relationship just short of ten years. I am totally in charge. I approve any and all partners for him. Most of the time we play or have a relationship with someone together, but I have let him play on his own between 15-20 times over the years. We always have honest and open communication.

If you have any other curiosities, feel free to reply here or dm.

are scurrying to cover and justify.

Chris Probably got in their last nerve. Will should not. Chris should not, Rebel should not.

I don't understand why comedians have to demean a person. I don't understand that type of mind set.

I will give you a choice.

For $50, you have to:

(a) have someone insult your spouse on television, or

(b) have someone slap your face on television.

Which would you prefer?

Or let people set their own rates for each.

I would bet that most people would pick (a), or would charge more for getting hit.

I thought Will and Jada have an open marriage but Rebel calls it cheating? I know more people in open relationships than are not. None of the significant others call it cheating and it is not considered as such.

Figures, with all the prejudices that abound. When I told my ex I was in an open relationship, he said, “That is just an excuse to cheat.”

Rebel needs to know wtf she is talking about, before she speaks.

nor do three, four, a hundred, or a billion. I'm getting less tolerant of so-called humor that relies on putting down or making fun of someone - make jokes about yourself all you want, but don't figuratively punch down.

yes, I doubt he would do the slap. Maybe Jada would do it herself?

Maybe if she were the one that slapped Chris it would seem different - but an assault is still an assault.

Host consensus is this OP doesn't meet the criteria in the SOP for this forum:

Threads about showbiz/celebrity culture which do not have a political angle are not permitted under normal circumstances and should be posted under Entertainment.

Open discussion of showbiz is permitted during very high-profile news events which are heavily covered across all newsmedia.


This story is no longer a very high profile event and is not being heavily covered across all news media.
