Chris Rock Reportedly Didn’t Know Jada Pinkett Smith Has Alopecia


There have been reports that Chris Rock didn’t know that Jada Pinkett Smith suffers from Alopecia before he told that joke at the Oscars.

This report comes via TMZ who’s saying that Rock had no idea about Jada having Alopecia.

According to TMZ’s source, Chris Rock had no idea Jada had Alopecia.

The source added that Rock “doesn’t have a mean bone in his body.”

This all comes after Chris Rock made a joke at Jada’s expense whilst on stage at the Oscars.

He said that he was looking forward to seeing her in G.I. Jane 2, which was a reference to Jada’s short hairdo.

This joke then caused Will Smith to go up on stage and slap Chris Rock right in the face.

TMZ’s source then added that Chris was left “shaken and bewildered” by Will.

However, the source went on to add that Chris Rock still went to Guy Oseary’s Oscars After Party to try and have some fun before the night ended.

Hopefully, Chris Rock, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been able to settle everything behind the scenes.

Honestly, when it happened, I really didn’t think it would be possible for Chris Rock not to know about Jada’s struggles with Alopecia.

That said, if TMZ’s report and source are correct, then it seems I was wrong.
