As is known, Will Smith recklessly slapped Chris Rock in the face because his wife’s illness was made a joke by Chris. At that time, Will Smith’s wife was present with a bald head, due to the Alopecia he suffered.

“Jada, I love you. GI Jane 2, can’t wait to see it. Wow, that’s a really good film,” he said.
