By now everybody’s seen the video from last night’s Academy Awards of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock across the face after Chris made a joke about Will’s wife Jada’s hair loss.
The reactions from around the internet have been mixed, with some people defending Will for standing up from his wife and others calling for him to face assault charges. (As of right now, Chris has apparently decided not to press charges, according to the LAPD).
But Wheeler Walker Jr. had a different reaction: He’s inviting Will Smith to the CMA Awards next.
In a video posted to his social media, Ol’ Wheeler throws out the idea to include Will in next year’s awards – and have every presenter make a joke about Smith’s wife.
“Here’s my take: Next year, the Country Music Awards, we invite Will Smith. Every joke on the stage is about his wife. That way everybody in Nashville gets their fucking face slapped.
Let’s do it. Let’s slap all them motherfuckers’ faces.
Will Smith, come on to Nashville. Lot of fucking faces to slap.”
The brutally and hilariously honest Walker dropped his latest single “Fucked By A Country Boy” today, after a two-year layoff.
Not to mention, the guy’s gotta brand new album in the works, Sex, Drugs & Country Music, slated for April 15th.
In addition to what appears to already be a big year for ol’ Wheeler, he’s announced a number of tour dates for this year.
Dubbed the “Wheeler Walker Jr.’s 2022 Comeback Tour,” he’ll kick things off at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on April 14th, and round things out on June 4th in Wichita, Kansas.
Lets get it going.
