Smith’s wife was currently going through alopecia, and Rock joked about her new look of no hair, allegedly stating she should be cast for the next G.I Jane movie. Smith responded by slapping Rock and yelling, “Keep my wife’s name out of your…mouth.” He later apologized on social media, stating, “ I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong…I am embarrassed of my actions…” Much controversy was caused by this incident. What is your opinion? Could Smith have handled it better?
