      Kenny told Los Angeles Times that the comedian wasn't aware of Jada's alopecia. Kenny said, "The joke was funny. It wasn't hilariously funny, but I know that if he knew that she had alopecia ... he wouldn't make a joke about that. But he didn't know."

      Back in 2018, Jada Pinkett Smith revealed her alopecia diagnosis which leads to hair loss. She has been open about her struggle with the condition through social media posts, and often keeps her fans updated on her progress.

      Kenny also opened up about seeing his sibling being hit on live television and said, "It eats at me watching it over and over again because you've seen a loved one being attacked and there's nothing you can do about it."

      He added that it is stressful coming across the videos everywhere. "My brother was no threat to him and you just had no respect for him at that moment. You just belittled him in front of millions of people that watch the show," he concluded.
