The player most concerned by the slap of Will Smith drops his opinion cash
Will Smith’s slap in the face of Chris Rock at the Oscars was talked about around the world, including the NBA. It must be said that a very specific player felt very concerned by the sequence, and he decided to share his opinion.
Who has not heard of the big controversy during the Oscars ceremony in the United States? A super-powerful slap from Will Smith towards Chris Rock, in a lunar moment that caused reactions from all sides – as well Francis Ngannou that of many NBA stars.
At the origin of the blood stroke of the Prince of Bel-Air: a very risky joke by Chris Rock, who made fun of the disease suffered by Jada Pinkett, the wife of Will Smith. It is alopecia, a pathology which causes partial or total hair loss or hair loss, and which explains the “shaved head” look sported by the actress and singer.
Affected by the same disease, an ex-NBA player lets go of his truth
Alopecia is quite widespread, and it particularly concerned a certain Charlie Villanueva. Passed by the NBA between 2005 and 2016, the strong winger marked an entire generation of fans with this atypical physical appearance, without any hairiness. While most of the league treated him kindly, Kevin Garnett didn’t. who was guilty of a very inappropriate remarkwhich the principal concerned has still not digested.
Still, the former Pistons player, necessarily legitimate on the subject, chose to discuss the Oscars incident. And his words are borrowed with great accuracy:
Let’s talk about this story. We all know that Jada has talked about alopecia many times before, and for those who don’t know, it’s an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss. She has repeatedly said her difficulties in understanding this pathology, and Chris Rock still thought it was cool to make a joke about it.
We are not with Jada every day to find out the level of difficulty she is facing, but Will is. I don’t condone violence, but I’m proud that Will Smith stepped up to defend his wife. Therefore, I encourage everyone to be more respectful with each other. And as someone affected by alopecia, I support Will and Jada.
If there is one NBA player whose opinion is enlightening on the subject, it is that of Charlie Villanueva. The latter delivered the substance of his thoughts bluntly, and thus publicly joined the very many supporters of Will Smith since the sequence on Sunday evening.
