For those who have lived beneath a pop culture rock, the incident happened afterward Smith, 53 (the actor) hit the 57-year-old comedian for tears a divisive joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who is open about her ongoing battle with alopecia.

“I’m sorry if you’re offended.” added Smith in a follow-up tweet.

“I’ll keep tweeting” Smith addedbefore retweeting a Follower who had joked “Everybody hates Chris.”

The comments came after an army of social media bozos mistook the player for the “Hancock” actor – despite his Twitter bio specifically mentioning that he’s “notthatwillsmith”.

Another Twitter investigator wrote, “I react to things all the time. Just get Asmon to host you and you’ll recover.”

Smith has since clarified that he is not actually the “Men In Black” actor.

“Really speaking, I’m not the person you’re upset/happy with. I do podcasts and video games for a living,” he wrote. “At the risk of people getting mad at me instead of these other guys, the world would be a better place if we stopped responding to words with violence.”
