After all the noise Jada Pinkett Smith made about boycotting the 2016 Oscars because of their diversity issues, it was no surprise that Chris Rock chose to poke fun at her during his opening monologue. It was a surprise, however, that all was quiet on the Pinkett Smith front afterwards
Rock joked that Smith’s boycott was a bit out of place, saying, “Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited!”
It doesn’t get much harsher than that, but the actress chose not to respond to being mocked on national television. When photographers caught up to her at Los Angeles International airport Saturday (March 5) and asked for a comment, she finally addressed the jokes made about her, and she’s surprisingly calm about the whole thing.
“Hey look it comes with the territory, we gotta keep it moving,” Smith says. “We got a lot of stuff we gotta handle, a lot of stuff going on in our world right now. We gotta keep it moving.”
