AceShowbiz - Corey Holcomb has started a controversy anew with his take on Will Smith Oscars slap. Weighing in on the drama at the 2022 Academy Awards during which the actor smacked Chris Rock onstage, Corey mocked Jada Pinkett Smith while defending Chris.
Appearing on Urban Flavorz TV show, Corey called out Jada as an "evil, cankerous, whore" who smashed her son's friend. The comedian suggested that Will should have not been offended by Chris' joke about his wife.
"Every man who allows a evil, cankerous, whore to be in their presence at age 45 and older…," Corey said of Will and Jada, "if you allow a evil, wicked b***h who f**ked his son's friend to accompany you all your shoulders in public, you ain't got nothing but drunk. Let's just start saying this."
The radio host insinuated that Will should have seen the joke at Jada's expense coming. "You cannot sit upfront at the Oscars with a bald head b***h and expect nobody not to say something. It is impossible," he continued.
Bringing up Jada's past entanglement with August Alsina, the 52-year-old went on describing the "Red Table Talk" host as a "bald head b***h that f**ked your son's homie in y'all house." He later suggested to Will, "You slapped the wrong man."
Corey's comments on the situation didn't sit well with many fans of the Smiths, with some dubbing his remarks "disrespectful." One person wrote on Twitter, "I'm glad Corey Holcomb is off Twitter and being dragged… he said some wild stuff when the R. Kelly thing happened. He has no problem disrespecting black women and y'all continue to give men like him a platform."
Another user said, "Corey Holcom gotta go. Gotta go. This aib't cancel culture. It's about standing up for an accomplished, successful black woman. These Kneegrows think they can do or say anything about and to a black woman and enough is enough."
"Cory [sic] Holcomb a b***h like all that wasn't called for," a third chimed in. Another enraged fan wrote, "Corey Holcomb calling Jada a whore pisses me off. Why can't black men protect black women in peace??"
Someone else said, "Corey Holcomb has one of the most disrespectful takes on this entire situation." Another blasted the comedian, "Corey Holcomb is not a good person. He lame as hell," while one other person remarked, "Why are these men steady attacking & speaking on this man’s wife. Very distasteful & HORRID ..Again I want men to shut up."
At the Sunday (March 27) Oscars, Will slapped Chris across the face for joking about Jada's shaved head, apparently not knowing her struggle with alopecia and hair struggle. Upon returning from his seat, Will was heard shouting, "Keep my wife's name out of your f**king mouth."
Will eventually issued a public apology to Chris on Monday, admitting that his behavior was "unacceptable and inexcusable." He added, "I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness."
As for Chris, he broke his silence on the situation during his show in Boston on Wednesday night. He hinted that he hasn't spoken to Will since the incident as he told the crowd, "I haven't talked to anyone despite what you may have heard."
"I don't have a bunch of s**t about what happened, so if you came to hear that, I have a whole show I wrote before this weekend. I'm still kind of processing what happened," the "Grown Ups" star said, adding that he would eventually talk about it later, "So, at some point I'll talk about that s**t. And it will be serious and funny."
