British comedian Ricky Gervais called out people who claim Jada Pinkett Smith's alopecia is a 'disability' as he weighed in on Will Smith's Oscars slap.

Gervais said Chris Rock's joke about Jada's alopecia 'wasn't bad' and described it as the 'tamest joke' he would have told as he spoke during a live Q&A session on Twitter.

He said, 'Someone said it was joking about her [Jada's] disability. Well I'm going a bit thin, so I'm disabled. That means I can park right up next to Tescos now." 

Letting out a laugh, he added: 'And I'm fat, that's a disease. I'm fat and balding, I should get f***ing benefits.'

Gervais star went on to say that Chris's comment 'wasn't bad' as he criticized Will for slapping the Oscars host for making a joke.

He said: 'You don't hit people over a joke, however bad it is. And it wasn't bad!

'That was like the tamest joke I would ever have told.'
