Normally I wouldn't comment on this since I think everything about Hollywood is a farce. However, since this was such a dramatic incident, staged or not, I will comment on it. Seemingly Chris Rock made a joke about Will Smith's wife's hair loss due to a condition known as alopecia. Obviously that joke was inappropriate yet it's hard for me to not think the event was staged. Why would he say that? It sounds like a stunt to boost views in an industry no one cares about.

Update: Turns out that Pfizer sponsored the Oscars this year. March 23 2022 Pfizer announced that "Etrasimod is an oral, once-a-day, selective sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulator being investigated for a range of immuno-inflammatory diseases including ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s Disease, atopic dermatitis, eosinophilic esophagitis, and alopecia areata." Last year they announced Phase 2b/3 Trial of Ritlecitinib in Alopecia Areata.
A fake wrestling punch - done for a rastings boost ... just about everybody forgot about the Oscars until Smith slaps Rock ... even a no-contact sparing match hits harder than that.ReplyDelete
Yeah I'd say it's 50/50. It was kinda weird how Chris was standing with his hands behind his back sticking his face forward. He didn't step back into a stance at all. Hollywood is so hyper vigilante about not offending people for any reason including pronouns or disabilities, the bald joke was clearly inappropriate.Delete
Rock sticks his face out and clenches his teeth in the second or 2 before the slap - fake a phuck .....Delete
A co worker mentioned how Will Smith was smiling right after as he walked back to his seat. Clinton Jaws mentioned how it was strange Chris Rock didn't touch his face afterwards. Usually if someone was hit, they'd put their hand on their face. Not always.Delete
It was all by design, just like the Fake Virus, it's what the richest sickest unhealthy people do, they're ratings were tanking and here we go, the whole friggen world is giving them what they wanted, more lime light, I have never ever watched this freak show in my life, proof it's all a sick joke to them.ReplyDelete
Was watching the Oscars when it happened. Did not see that coming. Sure cracked me up though. now I do understand violence is not the answer to an insult, but it was funny. Whether it was staged or not, is hard to know. It certainly is the most talked about event for things which ought not to happen at the Oscars.ReplyDelete
Well .... according to some chatter coming out of the TwatterSphere; it looks like Pfizer was the sponsor for the Oscars ... and that Pfizer needed some buzz for one of it's new drugs that treats "Alopecia" - which is the very condition Mrs. Smith has .....ReplyDelete
Things that make ya go hmmm... Don't worry, the fake fact checkers say it's just a coincidence: https://www.fiercepharma.com/marketing/pfizer-and-biontech-take-hollywood-they-sponsor-oscarsDelete
