And Sunday night wasn’t the first time Chris Rock had joked about Jada Pinkett Smith – but it may have been his last.
Her husband, Will Smith, stormed on stage at the 94th Academy Awards after Rock joked “Jada I love you, ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it” and hit Rock in the face.
Actress Demi Moore famously shaved her head for her role in the film G.I. Jane and Pinkett Smith has a close haircut because she suffers from alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss.
In 2016, Rock hosted the Oscars and joked about Pinkett Smith and her husband boycotting over #OscarsSoWhite, the online movement which began as a way to address the lack of diversity at the Academy Awards.
Rock declared that the Smiths, as well as Black director Spike Lee “went mad” over the issue as there were no black acting nominees that year.
“Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties,” Rock said during his opening monologue.
