Judge Mathis Speaks On Will Smith & Chris Rock’s Oscars Slap

Judge Mathis Weighs In On Will Smith & Chris Rock’s Oscars Slap: “If Someone Smacks Me, I Can’t Walk Around Detroit. I Would Have To Do Something”

Judge Mathis is letting it be known that he’s not the one or two to be messed with. In an interview with Page Six, the star weighed in on the infamous Oscar awards where Will Smith smacked Chris Rock on live TV.

“I think anytime you commit an assault, you commit a crime. And committing an assault, no matter how embarrassing or humiliating, it does not legitimize an assault,” Mathis, 62, told the outlet.

From a husband’s standpoint, Mathis says he understands why Will was so rocked by the comedian’s bald joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, who suffers from alopecia, “However, I would have yelled from my seat,” Mathis said.

“I gotta tell ya, I would’ve been a little disruptive. I would say, ‘Watch out, bro! Don’t talk about my wife again, Chris.’ I might have done that or be more diplomatic. I would speak with Chris backstage and let him know that he insulted my wife and that he owes my wife an apology. That’s the professional Greg Mathis.”

He went on to say, “If someone smacks me, I can’t walk around Detroit. I would have to do something.” Mathis added.

“Before they slap, those guys they crack a joke … but with me, if they smack me, it is another level. I would check him in some form or fashion,” Mathis said to Page Six.
