    I was 100 percent with Smith until he shouted from the seats. Total collapse of the amazement he just created. But in general I hate jokes based on people’s looks, including haircuts—it’s just too frickin’ easy. … That said, I’m not totally convinced it wasn’t fake. But what I really want to know is, when is Sean Penn lighting the bonfire under his Oscar? I’d actually like to watch.

    I think jokes about voluntary haircuts are fair game.  Not involuntary baldness.  Voluntary haircuts are choices.  Wise or weird.  Thus, fair game.

    Yes, but how does one know which is which before making the joke?

    It’s usually obvious. Example: rainbow colored hair. Or green hair.

    Colored hair is indeed quite eye-catching (and pretty common where I live). In this situation, though, it seems that Rock was unaware of Jada’s condition, and that’s what I was trying to suggest.
