The other time Chris Rock made fun of Will Smith & Jada at the Oscars, 2016.

Why Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith Probably Thought Chris Rock's Oscars Jokes Were Hilarious​
Everyone may be waiting a long time to hear what the couple thought of the comedian's monologue jabs—the trio do go way back, after all.​
Who wants to bet, however, that Will is going to just keep smiling? And Jada Pinkett Smith, too?​
Aside from the fact that a crack about Will making $20 million for one movie barely counts as a burn, it's hard to believe that either he or his wife of 18 years is actually offended by what Rock said about them during his explosive monologue on Sunday night.​
And considering Jada was one of the first major stars to prominently declare that she would not be attending the 88th Academy Awards, Rock had to mention as much in his appraisal of the current temperature of Hollywood's hottest issue.​
"What happened this year? People went nuts. Spike [Lee] got mad. Jada went mad. Will went mad. Everyone went mad!" Rock exclaimed. "Jada said she's not coming. I was like, 'Isn't she on a TV show?' Jada's gonna boycott the Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties. I wasn't invited!"
Pause for laughter from people who heard nothing but "Rihanna's panties."​
"Her man Will was not nominated for Concussion. I get it," Rock continued. "You get mad. It's not fair that Will was this good and didn't get nominated. You're right. It's also not fair that Will was paid $20 million for Wild Wild West!"

Ooooh, burn...all the way to the bank.​
But while the world waits anxiously to hear what the power couple have to say about being lightly roasted at the Oscars (Will is a two-time past nominee, for the record), wouldn't it make more sense that they had already given Rock his blessing to do his thing?​
These three go way back, after all. And we mean way back.​
Fresh from Saturday Night Live, In Living Color and movies like New Jack City and Boomerang, Rock made a cameo on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in 1995. He played a comic named Maurice and Maurice's sister "Jasmine," who Will is forced to take out on a date to up his chances of scoring a job. The joke is that Jasmine isn't attractive—because it's Chris Rock dressed as a woman. (Not exactly tasteful, but a pretty standard mid-90s sitcom trope.)​
Point being, Chris and Will have known each other for more than 20 years. And they've only spent even more time together over the past 10 because Chris and Jada have done three Madagascar movies together. So, Chris and Jada are friends, too!​
But in the meantime, in addition to the fact that they hang out socially, it's not as if the chummy trio have often found themselves on opposite sides of potentially divisive issues in the past, either, even coming down on the same side of the coin on taxes.​

Of course! I have just been remained that Chris wrote a dress [full blown drag actually] to play the role of his own sister. It is so shameful looking back on that episode.

Smith should think himself lucky Ricky Gervais wasn't hosting.

Smith would have probably shot him.

So I guess Gervais should think himself lucky also.

The king of nervous laughter doesn't really hold back on roasting the entire audience.

The whole acceptance speech from Will was weird and recommended to understand this stunt.
—He mentions defending his family/women in his movie King Richard & then he “defends” his wife that same night. What are the chances, fake!
—being called on by “God” (you know) and being a vessel…
—says you have to take the disrespect that comes from this business
—quotes Denzel who told him “at your highest moment, be careful, that’s when the devil comes for you”

there are a few triangles propped up behind him & they only brought them out near the end of the show

how could we forget that the new Bel Air show is here? Possible tied to this win…
