HERE ARE FOUR [4] WILL SMITH QUOTES FROM LAST SUNDAY, LISTED IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER

FIRST
"...got all dressed up to choose chaos."
SECOND
"God has let me live another day, and I'm about to make it everyone's problem."
THIRD
"I am overwhelmed by what God is calling on me to do and be in this world."
FOURTH and FINAL of the Series:
"I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people and to be a river to my people."

Surely THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN TOO??
BUT alas, the stories stand. April Fools Day 2022 overshadowed by Current Events

What is the mindset of someone starting off a celebratory day with such bizzare veiled threats? He started his day in aggression and hostility. This sounds like a coke fiend going to a Goth Rave dressed in "Black-tie Drag" against his will(?)
If he were my child*, I would have confronted him on choice of words and tone. If/ when the next statements following violent behavior were more bizzare that the "hostile Sunday opener(s)", I would have consulted a licensed MH provider and communicated immediate hospitalization for a health emergency-- (regrets to the OSCARS). He could have gotten such a career boost for "being such a trooper". Jada would have been the Queen of all Black Female Heroines. The Pinkett Smith children could have accepted the Oscar with Mom and Dad live from his hospital room. In the aftermath week, the story would have brought much needed global attention to COVID19 FATIGUE, and the global crisis in socioemotional hygiene/ the need for universal wellness care/ the courage and family support that allow the sufferer to finally seek diagnosis and treatment.
Why did he wake up putting angry threatening thoughts into words?
Describe the feelings and events, experiences, encounters (?) that prompted the words, I say.
Exactly who is Smith " being called to love", "to protect", and "be a river to"?

*- But there was no such intervention for Will. His wife, the only person who could have had him involuntarily admitted for psych observation hopefully(??) never checked in until their post-Oscar-win head lock/ gaze. Perhaps security for venues where they were main guests need to have private security assigned to quickly prevent outbursts.

Another episode in a history of inter-human violence. The alternate set of outcomes shared in this narrative make me feel less sad, disappointed and mourning the dead. For a few precious moments the Tsunami of Trump Toxicity mirrors "roid rage" has not yet receded amongst the elites of any color-- and 71 million who want Donald J.Trump as a despot and ruler-for-life.

Just hours before his incident with Chris Rock at the March 27 Academy Awards, the actor took to Instagram and shared a series of snapshots of himself and wife Jada Pinkett Smith modeling their awards-show attire, captioning the photos, "Me 'n @jadapinkettsmith got all dressed up to choose chaos." Along with the pictures, which gave followers another look at the actress' green Jean Paul Gaultier gown and the Oscar winner's Dolce & Gabbana tux, Smith uploaded the viral social media sound that says, "Good morning, everyone. God has let me live another day, and I'm about to make it everyone's problem."

"Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family. In this time in my life, in this moment, I am overwhelmed by what God is calling on me to do and be in this world."

"Making this film I got to protect Aunjanue Ellis, who is one of the most strongest, most delicate people I ever met. I got to protect Saniyya and Demi, the two actresses that played Venus and Serena. I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people and to be a river to my people."

Why this?
Why now?
Why them
Why the Oscars?
Will stand up comics now be compelled to perform remotely and or surrounded by bullet proof guards, bomb-sniffing k-9 units and armed sharpshooters?
