James Corden has mocked Jada Pinkett Smith after her husband, Will Smith, slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars over a joke he made. 

The actor and comedian put a spin on the song ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno,’ from Disney’s Encanto, after the King Richard star had an outburst at the 94th Academy Awards where he called out: “Keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth.”

In the sketch, Corden sang: “Will Smith rose up from the floor / Second time that night / No one in the room was bored / I know what comes next but anyway / We don’t talk about Jada…”

After watching the show, many people took to Twitter and said it was an amusing take on the incident earlier this week.

One viewer tweeted: “James Corden is really brilliant. ‘We don’t talk about Jada’.”

Another added: “James Corden and his team are so talented. [The] best thing ever.”

“‘We don’t talk about Jada, no, no, no! We don’t talk about Jada!’ James Corden nailed it with this skit on his show!!!” a third enthused.

A fourth pitched in, writing: “This is just genius, and the fact that they had less than 24 hours to come up with this and sing in it is amazing. This has to be the most creative reaction I’ve seen.”

Smith took to Instagram on March 28 and released a statement in which he apologised for the slapping incident.

He wrote: “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behaviour at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally.

“I would like to publicly apologise to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.

“I would also like to apologise to the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologise to the Williams Family and my King Richard Family. I deeply regret that my behaviour has stained what has been otherwise a gorgeous journey for all of us.

“I am a work in progress.

“Sincerely, Will.”
