  • Jada Pinkett Smith Finally Responds to Chris Rock’s Oscar monologue comments

Jada Pinkett Smith repeats Rock's words to keep moving and said that it comes with the territory.

Jada Pinkett Smith was the loudest star to boycott the Oscars this year due to lack of diversity among its nominees. The 44 year old actress was upset that her husband Will Smith was not nominated for his movie Concussion and overall, the acting nominees had failed to nominate any minority actors among them.

She and Will Smith along with Spike Lee boycotted this year’s Oscars. The one person who was under immense pressure about boycotting was this year’s host Chris Rock. 

Chris did not quit and turned his hosting monologue addressing the various issues about the situation surrounding the Oscars including the ‘Hollywood is Racist’ argument.

His monologue also called out to Jada Pinkett Smith saying that Jada boycotting the Oscars was like him boycotting Rihanna’s panties. They weren’t invited.

That being said, he told her to move on. Before that he had given all the reasons why it was not such a big issue to be boycotting and there were more serious causes out there to support. 

Jada was lately photographed at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday, March 5, where she commented about Chris’s comments about her.

According to USWeekly, she said that Chris has said to keep moving so that’s what she was doing. She was going to keep on moving and moving.

She said that such criticism came with the territory of being a spokesperson. Almost replicating Rock’s words, she said that there were bigger problems in the world which demanded our attention so the best thing all of that we could do was keep on moving. 

Her husband Will Smith did not comment about the diss Chris Rock made on him about earning $20 million for Wild Wild West.
