Will Smith and Jada Pinkett became entertainment for fans online in a matter that they are not accustomed to. It wasn’t due to the couple having any new acting roles or programming, but it had to do with the August Alsina “entanglement” with Will Smith’s wife. Although reps for the Hollywood couple initially shot down the rumors, Pinkett ultimately copped to the relationship in an episode of her Red Table Talk show in July.
Smith, who appeared on the episode alongside his wife, became a viral meme for seemingly appearing sad during their conversation — much like Michael Jordan did when he cried on camera while giving an emotional speech at his Basketball Hall of Fame induction.
Robin Williams was one of the greatest comedians ever and the Smith family was honored with an award in his name. It was ironic that Will and Jada both made fun of their latest quirk from the summer tying it in with comic relief.
