Like most, comedian Earthquake weighs in on the Oscar scandal last month involving Oscar winner Will Smith and Chris Rock. Things got physical between Smith and the ‘Good Hair’ star after the latter made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head amid the actress’ battle with alopecia. This autoimmune disease traditionally results in hair loss.
During an interview on “The Breakfast Club” with co-host DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God, the veteran comedian, whose real name is Nathaniel Martin Stroman, harshly criticized “The Matrix” star, slamming his actions after Smith took the stage while Rock presented the next category for “Best Documentary” and slapped Rock in the face, shocking viewers around the world.
“I personally feel sorry for Will because you know he gets beat up and abused by Jada – I’m just saying. That’s what happens when a man loves a woman who doesn’t love him, and he does everything to try to make sure that…trying to win her love,” the 58-year-old star began.
“I’ve been there before,” Earthquake admitted. He continued: “You have to make a decision. Accept it for the love she gives and just accept it or leave it alone, but you’ll never win her over because you can’t make her heart feel what it doesn’t – and she won’t. does not. And his actions that night showed it, and I feel for him.
When asked to elaborate, the comedian said that while the ‘Gemini’ star felt Rock was disrespecting his wife, the actress still had a duty. “She knows her man, and she saw he was about to come up here. A woman who loves you would stop you,” he said. “And then we’re doing radio, we know the FCC rules, and it was at the Oscars. Will isn’t even swearing, and here he uses profanity on a live show. He knows Hollywood; he knows the rules.
Earthquake said Pinkett Smith had a few opportunities to defuse the situation, but chose not to. He also noted that she has yet to stand up for her man – although she did post an Instagram statement about the healing.
“She didn’t try to stop him, there, twice, and finally, man, she hasn’t released the statement yet to say, ‘Hey man, my man is a good man; he lost his temper. It’s not indicative of who he is. He’s done more than three decades of good work towards people that he never had, he lost his temper, that’s not nothing, no,” he said.
He continued, “She should protect her man. What he did was protect her. A woman would come out and vouch for you, that it’s not you, it’s not him. It’s just a natural reaction – in my humble opinion – a natural reaction for a woman to see meaning in what he’s done and what it will cost her if he does it for you.
Earthquake said that at some point the actress had to stop being “politically correct” and “circle the wagons and say he’s my man; that’s what I care about, he’s not He lost it that day and that he’s human, and please don’t let that night define who he is as a person.
