Health challenges no laughing matter

Editor, OBSERVER:

Everyone is making an issue of Will Smith smacking Chris Rock. Think!

Chris Rock is supposed to be a comedian. He was rude and crude to publicly make a so-called joke of a health issue that Smith’s wife is doing all she can, living with and has no control over! It was not funny! If that is all he can do he should look for a different line of work.

We profess to be concerned about people with disabilities and health issues. Let’s show some compassion and stop trying to make Will Smith the scapegoat. Maybe he did not have to be violent, but sometimes you have to do something shocking to get people’s attention to an issue.

Let’s all wake up!
