Jaden Smith has responded on Twitter after his Oscars winning father, Will Smith, smacked Chris Rock on stage during the Academy Awards.

Chris Rock had, during the presenting of the 2022 Oscars, made a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith's bald head.

The joke didn't go down well with Will as his wife is reportedly battling alopecia.

Alopecia is the medical term for patchy baldness, which can develop anywhere on the body, including the scalp, beard area, eyebrows, eyelashes, armpits, inside one's nose, or ears.

Reacting to the expensive humour, an emotional Will had stormed the stage to hit Chris in the face.

The actor's controversial slap has also elicited response from his son, Jaden Smith.

After the incident, Jaden took to Twitter to hail his father, saying, "And that's how we do it."
