Hollywood power couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith have been making headlines since the birth of their daughter. The 22-year-old has been a host since the beginning of her 9-year music career to co-hosting the show ‘Red Table Talk’.

Willow Smith reacts subtly to Chris Rock’s Netflix comedy about his parents
Days Rock’s comedy special “Selective Outrage” aired – where he addressed the incident at the 2022 Oscars — Willow seemingly reacting to the comedian’s defection. Take it to him Instagram Story, a California native, shared a stunning picture of herself.
The image captures the “Female Energy” singer in all her glory, giving off a vixen vibe as she gazes seductively into the camera. In the close-up, Willow flaunts her gorgeous skin, rosy pink lips and multiple piercings.
Without a drop of make-up, the 22-year-old’s beauty was almost ethereal, her cat-like brown eyes giving off shades of green in the sunlight. The daughter of the “Men In Black” actor took the beautiful selfie in a car, wearing a black T-shirt with a black and white scarf on her head.
“Wait a minute!” The artist captioned the sexy shot “big feelings”. While the young entertainer didn’t shed any light on the meaning behind her cryptic post, it’s safe to assume the NAACP Image Award winner wasn’t fazed by the verbal attacks on Rock’s parents.
The comedian discussed his viral moment with the “King Richard” star during his live Netflix special. This stand-up show at Baltimore’s Hippodrome Theater was the first time the 58-year-old had publicly addressed the issue.
Although he made several references to the Oscar incident, the “Spiral” star didn’t start slam dunks until the end of the special. “Everyone knows. Yes, it happened like a year ago. This motherfucker showed me off at the fucking Oscars, Rock began.
“People say, ‘Does it hurt? It still hurts! I’ve got ‘Summertime’ ringing in my ears,” the comedian joked before assuring fans he wasn’t trying to play the victim card. According to the stand-up personality, he took the hit like Pacquiao and didn’t cry about it on shows like Oprah.
As for why the “Aladdin” star hit her, the Grammy winner claimed Will was “exerting selective outrage.” Referring to his ‘entanglement’ scandal with Jada August Alsina, the 58-year-old said: ‘Everybody knows it has nothing to do with me. I had no entanglements.”
The South Carolina native got heated, slamming the lovebirds for airing their dirty laundry on “Red Table Talk.” According to Rock, he could not understand why the esteemed couple would do something so “lower”.
“We’ve all been duped. The person who cheated on us has never interviewed any of us,” said the father of two. “Why the hell are you doing this shit? He hurt her a lot more than I did… Everyone called her a whore, and who did she hit? Me!”
For those wondering why the host didn’t defend herself, the Primetime Emmy winner responded by denying her attacker’s upbringing. “Because I have parents! Because I was raised!” Rock stated. “And you know what my parents taught me? Don’t fight in front of white people!”
Following his Netflix special, a source claimed the 58-year-old is over the controversial affair. “He said everything he wanted to say,” shared the informant. “It was funny, self-deprecating and thought-provoking. Chris is ready to move on.”
Willow Smith has defended her father’s actions after his viral Oscars moment
Last year, The Blast reported that the youngest Smith appeared to defend his father following the attack on Rock at the Oscars. The 22-year-old man addressed the situation in a heartfelt interview, asking for the public’s understanding.
The singer noted that she saw her family as people, not stars to be celebrated. “I love and accept them for all their humanity,” Willow explained, noting that their “humanity” was sometimes not accepted because of their celebrity.
“We’re expected to act in a way that doesn’t promote healthy human life and doesn’t promote honesty,” the California native continued, trying to help fans understand that her father is a man who can make mistakes.
Despite the criticism and continued media coverage of the case, Willow remained reticent. The “Meet Me At Our Spot” singer noted that the public’s reaction to the case hasn’t shaken her as much as her “own inner demons.”
