Three days after actor Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock, singer August Alsina posted a subtle message on his Instagram, referring to the slap. The singer, who had a brief affair with Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, wrote,

“choose peace; trusting that life’s intricate puzzle pieces 🧩 are all forming together for the greater good and mastering of the seasonally sometime chaotic nature of your life’s art piece that’s being formed and painted by birthing life to your internal masterpiece; grown through external chaos-metamorphosing alchemy, dark turned 2 light and beauty within. Then turned Master.”

Fans assume that this was a subtle dig at Will Smith as this post came just three days after the slap. During the 94th Academy Awards in Match 2022, Smith went up to the stage and slapped comedian Chris Rock for making a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, which she had been shaving since 2021 due to alopecia areata.

Even after 26 years, the issues in their marriage continue but they still haven’t ended their marriage as they hope to figure things out.
