  • Will Smith made an Instagram video of himself jumping rope, and a fan saw an opportunity to make a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith’s “entanglement” with August Alsina.

  • In response, Will threatened to block the user for his “funny” joke.

Life truly has not been the same since Will Smith appeared on Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett-Smith...not that I’m at all complaining. From the moment that Jada referred to her past relationship with August Alsina as an “entanglement,” the internet made millions (billions? trillions?) of jokes about her interesting choice of words, and it’s still going strong despite it happening two whole weeks ago. Take Will’s recent Instagram post for an example.

In the name of #content, Will decided to make a video showing what a jump rope sees when we use one (let’s forgive him for running out of ideas). The camera is attached to Will’s jump rope while he’s jumping, and the whole thing is so trippy that Will literally trips and falls on his ass while trying to film. So naturally, someone in the comments saw an opportunity to make an “entanglement” joke.

“Ok don’t get entangled,” a user commented on Will’s post, adding a laughing-crying emoji. But Will had the perfect response: “Hahaha…Okay…I can admit it. That’s funny! I’m definitely gonna block you. But the joke was Very Funny!” Too soon, I guess.

During the now-infamous Red Table Talk episode, Will talked about what led to Jada’s “entanglement” and shared that they were separated for a brief period in time. “I was done with your ass. I was done with you,” he said. “Marriages have that though. We decided that we were going to separate for a period of time and you go figure out how to make yourself happy and I’ll try to figure out how to make myself happy. I really felt like we could be over.”

Now’s also a fabulous time to mention that things between Will and Jada are (allegedly) juuuust fine. An Us Weekly source reported that they were “glad” they cleared the air surrounding the August Alsina drama and went on a Bahamas vacation right after their sit-down. In conclusion: Nothing to see here, folks.
