As reports continue to surface about Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, Chris Rock and the slap heard around the world on Oscars night Sunday, so has fans’ input.

On Sunday, Smith slapped Rock following a joke he made about Pinkett Smith’s balding head. The star has been open about her struggle with hair loss in the past. 

Will Smith has since apologized and noted that “a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.”

Since Sunday, the Smiths’ lives have gone under the microscope, and a four-minute fan compilation video from 2020 has resurfaced. The clip features one of the couple’s most candid moments on “Red Table Talk” — Jada’s “entanglement” with singer August Alsina and the Smiths’ journey.

“Very rarely am I out and about for New Year’s,” Pinkett Smith said. “I like to snuggle up somewhere and just chill and kind of go inside. I do a lot of spiritual work during this time.

“Usually, Will on New Year’s likes to be in an adventure in the world somewhere. There’s no telling where he’s gonna be. I don’t wanna be out in the world. He now has the freedom (to) go and have an awesome adventure of some kind.”
