not a punch
I don’t watch award shows because time is precious and these shows are such a waste of time. At one point that night twitter was ablaze with ‘what the hell just happened at the Oscars? ‘…so of course I had to find out. Wow. Right? Anyway, everyone seems to have an opinion on that slap heard round the world. I might as well get in on it too!
Although poking fun at a person’s disability, at a person’s issues etc isn’t right I am team Chris all the way. The joke wasn’t all that bad but more importantly there is no place for violence. Is it possible that Chris Rock really didn’t know about Jada’s alopecia? It’s possible. I mean not every celebrity is in tune with the goings on of every other celebrity. I didn’t know and I am not a celebrity. And this woman and her red table spills so much TMI it’s ridiculous!
We can speculate all we want about what triggered Will’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde moment. Only he really knows. Folks are speculating that he’s a broken man who just flipped. Some folk in the industry claim he’s a thug. Who knows. But…
There seems to be a lot of validity in all of the above. I buy into these opinions.
There’s no doubt Will worked hard to get where is he but I do think it’s a fair statement to say that, that whole family does carry itself with entitlement. I mean just think about what he did. Nevermind about whether he was asked to leave or not. The man got up, slapped another man on live TV and his walk back was so full of attitude it was disgusting. And to boot he sat right back down knowing very well nothing would happen to him because of who he is.
My heart sank for Chris. And considering all the stuff that is now coming out about his childhood bullying days really adds to how much I feel for Chris. The fact he continued on and kept his composure as best he could is commendable. We all have demons and time heals so in time this should go away. Having said that I don’t know that Will will ever be looked at the same way.. But then again time will tell.
And get a load of this.. Almost by divine intervention.. This YT video hits my feed.. On the day I decided to write this up. Alan recaps and analyzes that infamous red table talk about the entanglement. Cringe worthy watching a broken man listening to that rubbish.
Btw Alan Ritchson is amazing as Reacher.. And I have watched some of his other YT videos. I am not much for religion but this man is very well spoken and insightful. He looks to have an amazing outlook to life.
