Actor Will Smith became the center of attention after he chose to slap comedian Chris Rock at the Oscars. Chris Rock took the opportunity to make some jokes about Jada Pinkett Smith, in particular her shaved head, which prompted Will Smith to come on stage and slap him. Will Smith further yelled at the actor, urging him to keep his wife’s name “out his mouth.” Now with Will Smith on everyone’s mind, an old video has resurfaced in which Will Smith warned his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, not to use him for clout.
The video, which was originally streamed on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Instagram Live, is 49 seconds long. It’s clear that Will Smith is quite uncomfortable in the video, mostly by Jada Pinkett Smith recording him so abruptly.
She first begins by stating the following:
“You know [therapist] Esther Perel is coming to the table — she’s gonna be at the ‘Red Table.’”
She continued by asking Will Smith a direct question, with the camera pointed right at him:
“Would you say she has been instrumental in you and I redefining our relationship?”
Will Smith responded with the following:
“I would say don’t just start filming me without asking me.”
It’s clear that Jada Pinkett Smith doesn’t care, merely saying she’s “still dealing with foolishness.” If that wasn’t enough, she added the following question:
“Would you say that she [Perel] helped us heal the hurts that we caused between one another?”
At that point, Will Smith has this to say:
“My social media presence is my bread and butter. So you can’t just use me for social media. Don’t just start rolling; I’m standing in my house. Don’t start rolling.”
Here’s the video below:
