Will Smith Labeled A Hypocrite After Old Jokes Resurface

Celebrity - News


Will Smith is having an interesting week following his historic appearance at the 94th Academy Awards. The actor — who attended the ceremony alongside wife, Jada Pinkett Smith — made headlines after he stormed the stage during the ceremony and slapped comedian Chris Rock.

Since then, Smith took to Instagram to apologize to Rock. However, his apology is falling on deaf ears for some, as the actor is now receiving flack after a video resurfaced online of Will Smith making bald jokes.

A Twitter user posted a 1991 clip of Smith teasing a bald musician during an appearance on "The Arsenio Hall Show." "[...] He's got a rule: He's gotta wax his head every day. That's a rule!" Smith said about bassist John B. Williams. The remark was met with hesitant laughs from the audience.

The tweet attached to the video, claims that Williams suffers from Alopecia — the same condition that causes Jada Pinkett Smith's hair loss — but Williams has yet to confirm the diagnosis. The incident has seemingly divided users on social media.
