The joke started with Chris Rock saying he loved Jada then said that he “couldn’t wait for G.I. Jane 2” referencing her shaved head. Smith was seen initially laughing on the broadcast, then almost immediately after walked up to Rock and slapped him across the side of his face on live television, later to be replayed by millions online.
Will Smith then returned to his seat while the live broadcast went silent in America for several seconds as Smith yelled the words “Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth!”
Will Smith won an Oscar moments later and headlines emerged about the consequences he may be facing. Individuals began to voice their opinions on whether the altercation was warranted, with celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg claiming he overreacted. Comic Fortune Feimster tweeted about an experience with someone rushing the stage earlier that week, adding on, “...No, I don’t find someone getting hit on stage amusing.”
Although in terms of the law, Smith could be in the clear. The Los Angeles Police Department told The Post in a statement that it is aware of the incident but “the individual involved has declined to file a police report."
People around the world immediately began to debate whether or not the slap was justified.
Alopecia or “Alopecia areata” is an autoimmune disorder that causes your hair to come out, often in clumps. An individual's immune system is responsible for hair loss and in the case of Alopecia, many individuals lose their facial hair, eyelashes and eyebrows.
The physical manifestations of this disorder (Alopecia) may not be as difficult to handle for some individuals as the emotional ones. Most people with Alopecia Areata are generally healthy otherwise, and the disorder itself is not a sign of a serious or life-threatening disease.
Alopecia areata is an autoimmune disease which means that your immune system mistakenly attacks a part of your body. When you have alopecia areata, cells in your immune system surround and attack your hair follicles (the part of your body that makes hair).
According to several scientific studies, cannabis can help remedy this autoimmune condition by promoting individual immunity.
According to the National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF), approximately 6.8 million people in the United States and 147 million worldwide have or will develop alopecia areata at some point in their lives.
Using CBD topically as an oil and in shampoos for hair regrowth in patients with different types of hair loss has been shown to help alopecia both through scientific research studies and by patient testimony according to the National Library of Medicine. Topical use is ideal for the skin and hair because they both contain a large amount of receptors that allow CBD to work in the body, although more research is needed for it to be commercially recommended. Cannabis use is common among patients with Alopecia and is often used to alleviate the psychosocial symptoms. Many people struggle with feeling alone or unattractive as their hair begins to disappear, and cannabis has been proven to be a helpful tool when combating those anxieties.
While Facebook may not allow Jada to discuss her treatments on Red Table Talk, we at WeedTube would be more than happy to provide a safe space.
