Jada Pinkett Smith Responds to Chris Rock's Oscar Joke: 'It Comes With the Territory'
She didn't seem surprised by the remarks.
Jada Pinkett Smith has spoken out about being the butt of one of Chris Rock’s many jokes at the Oscars.
She told X17 a week after the ceremony: “It comes with the territory, sweetheart. Hey look, it comes with the territory but we gotta keep it moving. We gotta keep it moving. We gotta keep it moving. There’s a lot of stuff we gotta handle, a lot of stuff in our world right now. We gotta keep it moving."
The actress and her husband, Will Smith, famously boycotted this year’s Oscars after a lack of diversity among nominees in the major categories.
Rock, who hosted the Oscars last Sunday, gagged: “Jada [Pinkett Smith] boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties. I wasn't invited.”
The host also mocked Will Smith, who many thought would get a nomination for his role in Concussion.
Rock quipped: “It’s not fair that Will was this good and didn’t get nominated. It’s also not fair that Will was paid $20 million for Wild Wild West!"
