    Laughter doesn't always mean someone thought something was funny and they're having a good time. Laughter is a response to novelty and the unexpected. He was probably laughing because he wasn't expecting the situation.

    As someone who pisses people off regularly, I've seen lots of people laugh when they're pissed off.

    Seems like they both apologized to each other and it’s all good now.

    A bizarre incident that people will forget about in a few days.

    In this situation they both could have done things differently.

    You can tell jokes without making it personal. Comedy is supposed to make people laugh, not make people upset.

    And you can handle situations like an adult. Just because someone said something mean doesn’t give you the right to physically assault them.

    Thats what toddlers do, not grownups. There were plenty of other ways to address that situation.

    Oh and Jada Pinkett has always been fine as hell… she looks good even without much hair and there aren’t many women I can say that about. Still looks great for her age.

    For a lot of TLDR reasons I won't get into on a predominately white message board, hair within the black community is an extremely touchy subject. I mean Chris Rock himself made a whole documentary on the topic.

    He's damn lucky it was only one punch. :shrug:

    Also, it's ableism.
    Somewhere in San Diego, Dinner is getting hard over all of this :lol:

    I watched Menace II Society (1993) a few weeks back and I was thinking: she fine.

    So, justifiable violence then?
    Will didn't have a problem with it until his wife gave him the "You better do something" glare.

    Will Smith should be arrested. Jokes — even offensive ones — aren’t violence, and shouldn’t be met with it. Call him an asshole in your acceptance speech, interrupt him and call him out on the spot, whatever. But a slap isn’t the answer here.

    open handed slap with little to no weight behind it (we have ample evidence from the past WS can throw hands for real)... so I'd say "correction".

    unless we're gonna start laying assault charges every time a child is spanked?

    so you can assault someone you're related to and it's not a crime so long as they're a minor?

    fascinating.

    hell yeah... and I support it.

    although perhaps in this example it'd be better to contrast it to a couple of 10 year olds getting charged under conceivably identical circumstances?

    FOX News host said she was pleased to see the slap as it's good to see Hollywood attacking itself rather than conservatives. Plus she likes "men who stand up for their women".

    We revile, you decide.

    Bit of perspective. Also, fuck Eastwood and Wayne:

    I did not know that. and brings a whole new perspective to John Wayne (haven't liked Eastwood for a couple decades). I'm wondering if I should let my mother in law in on this information. She's Native American (Alaskan actually) and she loves John Wayne.

    compared to this one?
    although I suppose we're getting a good measure of your stance being in favour of violence against children.

    If true.

    To my knowledge the only person that has stated it was so is Littlefeather herself. And that for the first time last year in a Guardian article.

    Wayne did call out Brando for putting that on her instead of making the comments himself.

    John Wayne's more than 40 years dead and incapable of defending himself.
