Days eliminated from the 2022 Oscars service, everybody is as yet discussing the slap heard all over the planet. Entertainer Will Smith strolled up in front of an audience and insulted jokester Chris Rock after the last option had poked fun at Smith’s better half Jada Pinkett and her battle with alopecia. There have been many individuals going this way and that on the discussion, and presently Charles Barkley has offered his viewpoint on the circumstance.
Charles Barkley was a visitor on the Dan Patrick show. Patrick got some information about the circumstance that occurred at the Oscars. He noticed that while he adores both Chris Rock and Will Smith, he thinks Will was off-base and highlighted his own set of experiences of unnecessary viciousness.
Charles Barkley gives his honest opinion on Will Smith slapping Chris Rock
Barkley conceded that he was incited in those circumstances and responded in the incorrect way and that he ought to have left, very much like Smith ought to have.
“I love Chris Rock. I love Will Smith. Will was 100% wrong let’s just leave it right there… I think I’ve been arrested four or five times for punching people, and I was wrong. It’s alright to admit you were wrong Dan… It was an overreaction. Part of our job is to get heckled and people say stupid stuff to you, but at the time, I was 25-26, and I was an idiot for overreacting. Unless somebody physically comes at you, you grow up. I’m almost 60 years old now. And the stuff you do when you were 25-26 when somebody heckles you, you can’t do it. It goes with the job… Unless they get personal, you turn the other cheek. You have to. 90% of fans are great. 10% are just jacka**es who are just jealous and just mad at you because you’re successful. But you gotta turn the other cheek.”
Barkley is far from the main NBA personality to share their opinion on the issue between Smith and Rock. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar admonished Will Smith for slapping Rock, yet he was way harsher than Barkley was. Stephen Curry had an immediate reaction to the incident yet appeared to carry an extremely neutral tone while talking about it.
Barkley has had a history of not taking inappropriate remarks from fans and usually made a physical move against the individual saying these things. However, Barkley was made to resemble the villain in those situations, with nobody paying attention to what was said to him. This was one reason Barkley made the infamous ‘I am not a role model’ campaign with Nike.
