We are all understandably still in a little bit of shock after witnessing the moment when Will walked up to the stage and landed a hot slap on Chris Rock’s face. This came after the comedian made a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, that she did not appreciate. He continued to yell that Chris should keep Jada’s name out of his f***ing mouth, compounding the effect of the incident.

Celebrities have been weighing in, and it is no surprise that Cassper feels a kinship with Will after watching the video. He took to Twitter to express just how much he understands why Will acted as he did, saying it is usually only a matter of time until people get tired of being the bigger person.
He continued to agree with others who said that perhaps Will should have ignored the joke, even though he thought it was in poor taste. However, he will not vilify Will for not ignoring it either.
He emphasised that while he is not saying that people should go around smacking others, sometimes people really talk a lot of smack about others, and maybe deserve it when such things happen to him.
Cassper was adamant that he relates to Will’s side of the saga, and it is not hard to see why. Sometimes, spending time on Mzansi social media, it starts to look like Cassper may be the most hated South African celebrity. Does a week ever go by before he is dragged for one thing or another?
