Mumbai, March 29: The incident of punching actor Will Smith’s host Chris Rock at the Oscar Awards function is in discussion all over the world. Actually Chris joked about the baldness of Will’s wife Jada Pinkett, after which all this happened. Many types of reactions are being seen on social media regarding this incident. Some people are supporting Will and some people are calling his action completely wrong.
Deepika Singh of The Indian Express has shared her experience about this in an article, who, like Jada herself, is battling this disease named Alopecia. He says that during my school days, I had to face many questions and comments regarding my short hair. In such a situation, it is so clear that it is not at all funny to joke about the baldness of a lady.
She says, the hair started decreasing continuously, so I talked to the doctor about it. The doctor asked who in my family does not have hair. When I asked my mother, I came to know that grandfather had a problem of baldness. After this the doctor told me that I have alopecia. In such a situation, new hair cannot be given, which can be tried to save them. We can try and save what you already have. After that, I took several types of treatments continuously.
I saw those videos of Jada Pinkett, in which she is openly talking about hair loss. Accepting her illness, she gave me encouragement. I also thought of accepting it in my heart. What if my head isn’t full of hair? To make someone realize again and again that as if he has committed some sin, then it is not right if there is any deficiency in him. Your making jokes on someone’s illness is insensitive and not funny.
