Dame Dash is one of the many to opine on the controversy surrounding Will Smith and Chris Rock.
According to Dame, everyone witnessed Will transition from a “superhero to a villain.” After this episode, Dame believes Will needs therapy. “I will tell you this — ten years ago, five years ago, one year ago, if I ever heard that Will Smith got up and smacked somebody I would not believe it,” the Roc-A-Fella co-founder told PageSix.
“It’s almost like when a superhero turns into a villain or when a wrestler goes from being a good guy to the bad guy. It is almost seen as the shift of Will Smith. It is like he’s sick of being a good guy I guess. Will is tired of being a punk and he exploded and Chris Rock got it. It’s also internalizing a lot of trauma that he didn’t recognize and he overreacted to other things that bothered him. […] So more than likely I could say he could use a little therapy because he lost control of his emotions. The world is a different place. I know if that was me and Kanye I would’ve walked out in cuffs and Kanye would’ve walked out in a straight jacket.”
