“They didn’t suppose Will would slap him for it & that’s the place issues get tough…. As a result of it backed Will Smith right into a nook the place he acted on impulse & needed to defend his spouse & decide that they’re attempting to crucify him for. I’m not personally capturing at Regina Corridor, or [fellow co-host] Wanda Sykes,” he wrote. “I’m simply saying, you see they didn’t let Amy Schumer learn that line. Moreover, it’s kool to joke about us with us as a result of we as Black of us perceive one another in that method. It’s only when it’s pre-written & they’re conspiring earlier than hand to as soon as once more use US in opposition to US for their very own humor.”
