KHLOE Kardashian's ex, Lamar Odom, is comparing the already infamous Will Smith Oscar slap to his own relationship to the reality star.
Weighing in on the slap heard 'round the world, the former NBA baller attempted to justify it as the rage of a man in love.
As unfolded in front of millions of viewers on live TV, award presenter Chris Rock made an off-color and ill received joke comparing Jada Pinkett Smith's bald head to G.I. Jane.
"Jada, I love you, G. I. Jane 2, can't wait to see it," Chris tried to joke.
Demi Moore famously shaved her head for her role in the 1997 movie.
Jada, on the contrary, has been struggling with hair loss for years, and last year decided to shave it all off.

Her husband, Will, took offense at the joke and stormed the stage before hitting the presenter with a right hook.
In a lengthy Instagram post, Lamar, 42, revealed that were he in a similar situation, he would NOT have taken a swing at an offender.
He did, however, defend Will's actions as doing, "what a husband is called to do: Protect his wife, from anything and anyone who causes her pain."
He then turned self-reflective, comparing Will's response to feelings he continues to have about the collapse of his marriage to Khloe.

"Had I protected my wife versus mentally, emotionally and spiritually hurting her, I may still be married."
But fans are calling foul, and slammed the former husband for his words..
"He made this about him," one person stated. "He seems like such an opportunist."
Another agreed: "This is nothing more than to get pity and attention."
One person asked why Lamar is still playing the victim: "I wonder why he can’t just admit that he f’d up and let her go. Why is he still clinging on to her years after?"
And one person suggested Lamar needs serious help: "Khloe has moved on and he should too. I don’t even think he misses Khloe, I think he misses the fame and attention that came with being involved with them.
"I hope someday he can take his mental health serious, get on going therapy/help, rebuild relationships with his kids, and then focus on a romantic relationship when everything else in his life is settled and consistent.
It’s been yearssss and he still hasn’t moved on."
CLINGING TO HOPE
Indeed, Lamar seemingly continues to cling to hope that he and Khloe will find their own happy ending, and made another public plea towards the model after recently getting evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Lamar, 42, opened up about his hopes to reconnect with Khloe and how much he "misses" her following his boot from the reality show.
In an exclusive interview with E News, the basketball player revealed what he would say to his ex-wife if he had the opportunity.
"First I would ask her how she's doing, how her child is doing," he began, before admitting his desire for a date with the TV star.
"And maybe just ask her for, ya know, lunch. Just to be cordial. Ya know, just to be around her would be a blessing for me."
Lamar mentioned Khloe numerous times throughout his time on the show, previously confessing that "ruining his marriage" to her was his "biggest regret in life."
The former Los Angeles Lakers star made the admission in a confessional during an earlier episode.
“When I married Khloe there were so many things I did wrong in our relationship.
“It was never my intention to hurt her," he declared.
He talked about their romance with castmates Carson Kressley and Cynthia Bailey who asked if losing her was one of his "biggest regrets," to which the athlete responded: “Yes it is.”
Lamar also gave a shoutout to the TV personality upon leaving the Celebrity Big Brother house after he was eliminated from the CBS television series.
