In a scathing critique, Stephen A. Smith condemned Jada Pinkett-Smith for tarnishing Will Smith’s reputation while promoting her new book Worthy. The veteran sports journalist criticized the actress’s actions, raising concerns about the impact of Will’s image, which has sparked widespread debate over public scrutiny of celebrity marriages.
“I know it is inconvenient and grotesquely unfair to publicly castrate your husband. He’s Will Smith. How smaller do you want to make it? Did he deserve it? Smith asked on his YouTube podcast. (00:11:42)
Last week, Jada went to the media and said that she and Will have been separated since 2016, and that she spoke about how her husband hit Chris Rock at the Oscars.
Although all of her views on various aspects of her life have been made public, Smith believes that the attention she receives is tarnishing Will Smith’s image. He said her actions send a dark message to men that they should be more afraid of getting married.
“Jada Pinkett-Smith, this is fucked up. Seriously. You should stop. Because every time you do it, it instills a level of fear in men that makes them think, what if my woman does this? What if I get married and my wife turns her back on me?,” Smith said. (00:22:08)
Stephen A. Smith is honest about Will Smith slapping Chris Rock
While giving his opinion on how Jada Pinkett Smith is promoting her book, Stephen A. Smith also gave his honest opinion about what he thought of Will Smith when he slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars.

“Will Smith, you slapped a black man on national television. A person is 50 or 60 pounds lighter than you. I don’t believe you would do that to 50 Cent. I don’t believe you would do that to MJ. “…White. I don’t believe you would do that to Snoop Dogg. I don’t believe you would do that to Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, and I don’t believe you would do that to someone white.” ” said Smith. (00:06:09)
