Comedians, Kevin Hart and Dave Chappelle dominate the trends following Will Smith’s Oscars fiasco with Chris Rock.
Yesterday, social media could not stop talking about Will Smith’s assault on Chris Rock. Smith walked up to the stage and slapped Rock after he made a joke about his wife, Jada’s Alopecia condition.
The video has circulated social media even more than his “Best Actor” Academy Award win. Smith has since tendered an apology to the Academy and also to Rock who has refused to press charges. We hear his tickets have seen a spike since the assault.
Social media users have also dragged other popular comedians into it. Many believe that Smith could only do that because it was Chris Rock. In their opinion, he would have had no chance with Kevin Hart or Dave Chappelle who they claim wouldn’t have handled things the way Rock did. And yes, Rock was mature about it. They have also reacted to what Hart and Chappelle have suffered at the hands of people and the Academy after almost getting cancelled.
Glad that Twitter is a safe place where I can say ….
Will Smith woulda never did no shit like that to Dave Chappelle, Bernie Mac, DL, Cedric the entertainer, Steve Harvey, Kevin Hart , Tracy Morgan, Katt Williams, Mike Epps, DeRay Davis, Charlie Murphy & the list does go on.

Comedians Will Smith would NOT have slapped even with the same joke.
Cedric the Entertainer
Any White Comedian
Anybody but Chris Rock
The #Oscars owe Chris an apology for condoning that violence.

The Academy banned Kevin Hart for historic Tweets…..
Will Smith assaulted Chris Rock and verbally abused him in front of millions.
They gave him a standing ovation and an Oscar.
No more virtue signaling lectures on anything from these people. On anything. Ever.

If Will Smith had done that to Dave Chappelle, Chappelle would be into his third uninterrupted hour of Jada jokes

Dave Chappelle would’ve lit a cigarette and buried the Smith family 🤷🏼♂️😂
