OJ Simpson: “It was unfortunate. I think Will was wrong. Look, I understood the feeling. In my life, I’ve been through a lot of crap, and I was raising two young kids, and every comedian in the country had an OJ routine, and don’t think I wouldn’t wanna slap a couple of those guys. But you gotta accept, it’s humor. I didn’t think that was all that egregious. I thought it was a semi-funny joke.”

Thomas Haden Church: “I think that Will Smith should be banned from the Oscars for the rest of his life… I think he should have his Academy membership stripped, but I don’t think he should have the Oscar taken from him.”

Lamar Odom: “He loves his wife. I do not condone violence against anyone… would I have hit him?, NO but he did what a husband is called to do. Protect his wife, from anything and anyone who causes her pain. Had I protected my wife versus mentally, emotionally and spiritually hurting her, I may still be married.”

Jim Carrey: “I was sickened by the standing ovation… I felt like Hollywood is just spineless en masse and it really felt like, oh, this is a really clear indication that we’re not the cool club anymore… I’d have announced this morning that I was suing Will for $200 million because that video is going to be there forever. It’s going to be ubiquitous. You know, that insult is gonna last a very long time.”

Tiffany Haddish: “When I saw a Black man stand up for his wife. That meant so much to me…. As a woman, who has been unprotected, for someone to say, ‘Keep my wife’s name out your mouth, leave my wife alone,’ that’s what your husband is supposed to do, right? Protect you. And that meant the world to me. And maybe the world might not like how it went down, but for me, it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen because it made me believe that there are still men out there that love and care about their women, their wives.”

Sophia Bush: “Violence isn’t ok. Assault is never the answer. Also? This is the 2nd time that Chris has made fun of Jada on the #Oscars stage, & tonight he went after her alopecia. Punching down at someone’s auto-immune disease is wrong. Doing so on purpose is cruel. They both need a breather.”

Kathy Griffin: “Let me tell you something, it’s a very bad practice to walk up on stage and physically assault a Comedian. Now we all have to worry about who wants to be the next Will Smith in comedy clubs and theaters.”

Rob Reiner: “Will Smith owes Chris Rock a huge apology. There is no excuse for what he did. He’s lucky Chris is not filing assault charges. The excuses he made tonight were bulls–t.”

Nicki Minaj: “I love Chris Rock. I don’t think he would’ve made that joke had he known what Jada recently shared- but between him & the whole team @ the #Oscars you mean to tell me not ONE of y’all heard this woman just share this heartbreaking story? #ComeOnSon … Here’s the thing… And this is such an AMAZING – EYE OPENING example of it…  The husband gets a front row seat to his wife’s pain… he’s the 1 consoling her… drying her tears behind closed doors when those cameras go off. Social media has made ppl feel that these ‘husbands’ won’t ever run into them in real life.”

Cheryl Burke: “I can’t stop thinking about what we saw at the Oscars. I don’t agree with making fun of a medical condition, but the way Will handled it wasn’t ok. As a survivor of abuse, I think a leader of his stature should show kids, esp his own, how to handle conflict with love not fear.”
