Chris Rock Taught Us All a Lesson

Hollywood elites tend to be the worst people in society. And they push the culture that’s devastating our country. A perfect example is Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall protesting the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by exclaiming, “We’re going to have a great night tonight, and for you people in Florida, we’re going to have a gay night! Gay! Gay! Gay! Gay!”

We don’t want to cover some Hollywood drama story. But there’s something missing from the coverage, and we want to make sure it doesn’t go unsaid.

The altercation between Will Smith and Chris Rock began when Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Smith’s hair. Jada has a medical condition called alopecia which causes hair loss.

Will was laughing at first. But may have been shocked at the comment after he processed what was said. He walked onto the stage and slapped the host, Chris Rock, in the face while his hands were behind his back.

The drama between Will and Jada Smith has been ongoing for several years. Who knows what was going on behind the scenes that night. Chris may have stepped out of bounds with that joke, and he certainly paid a price for it. But such a violent display following a lighthearted joke by a comedian at an awards show certainly appalled anyone who tuned in for something akin to the usual awards show.

Chris Rock has declined to press charges, and really handled the entire situation in the most classy way possible. Even after the forceful assault, Rock quipped about the excitement adding to the night being the “greatest night in the history of television.” The focus on the story has been the slap — and it was quite a slap. But Rock set a tremendous example for the youth watching, as well as for many adults, about how a mature man handles an emotional outburst, even when it turns violent. And that’s something the world should see.
