Jaden Smith appears to have responded after father Will Smith‘s altercation at the Oscars, reports NME.
Sunday night’s (March 27) Academy Awards saw comedian Chris Rock make a “joke” about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith being bald – Pinkett Smith has alopecia and has been open about suffering from the condition.
Following the comments, the outlet adds, Smith proceeded to get on stage and take a swing at Rock, before returning to his seat and shouting: “Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth.”
Taking to his Twitter account shortly after the incident, Jaden Smith wrote: “And That’s How We Do It”.
In a since-deleted post, he also shared a selfie, and said: “My Dad’s Speech Made Me Cry”.
Smith later won Best Actor in a Leading Role for King Richard, and apologised in his speech “to the Academy” and his “fellow nominees”, adding: “Art imitates life. I look like the crazy father, just like they said about Richard Williams.”
The LAPD has since confirmed that Rock had not pressed charges against Smith at present, saying in a statement: “LAPD investigative entities are aware of an incident between two individuals during the Academy Awards program.
“The incident involved one individual slapping another. The individual involved has declined to file a police report. If the involved party desires a police report at a later date, LAPD will be available to complete an investigative report.”
