“No he was not. First of all, he was at the Oscars. That’s what comedians do at the Oscars. They razz the audience. When your turn comes, you know it’s coming.”

“I don’t think he was justified. … I don’t think that was the appropriate venue to react on that. It wasn’t like he was physically threatening her life. It was a joke.”

“If my wife had alopecia and somebody made a joke about her, I believe it would be justified. My wife, my kids, they’re off limits. So I feel he’s justified. … Right thing to do, wrong place to do it at.”

Ronald Smith
