Bill Maher slammed Jada Pinkett Smith in a scathing monologue telling her she should "thank god" that alopecia is the biggest health problem she's battling.

The Real Time with Bill Maher host took on the hot topic of Will Smith's infamous Oscars slap in his most recent episode on Friday, April 1, alongside guests former presidential candidate Andrew Yang and attorney Laura Coates.

"If you are so lucky in life as to have that be your medical problem, just say ‘thank God,'" Maher, 66, joked of Pinkett Smith's alopecia — an autoimmune disorder that results in patchy hair loss. "It’s not life threatening. It’s part of — for most people, 80 percent of men, 50 percent of women — it’s part of aging."

He added, "Aging is, trust me I know, it’s the degradation of the flesh. It happens to all of us," before adding insult to injury by suggesting she should just "put on a f***ing wig like everybody else at the Oscars if it bothers you so much."

Maher went on to claim Smith slapping Chris Rock on live television was a peek into ugly "aspects of society" such as "toxic masculinity, victim culture and liberal hypocrisy."

"I remember as a prosecutor prosecuting quite a few assault and batteries and they didn’t stand by and be like ‘no no I’ve got the rest of my kid’s soccer game, I gotta stay for this,'" Coats chimed in sharing her own experiences as an attorney. "So the fact that he was there to be like ‘here’s my award’ in and of itself was shocking, let alone a standing ovation."

Yang joined the conversation, admitting he believed it is "part of the job" as a celebrity or politician to have a thicker skin when it comes to petty insults. "I ran for office and people said things around me I didn’t like and I didn’t get up and smack anyone," he added.

Smith has since apologized to the Academy and to Rock over the shocking altercation that took place at the 94th Academy Awards on Sunday, March 27. As of Friday, April 1, the King Richard actor also officially resigned from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It is still unclear if he will also be asked to give up his Oscar for Best Actor.
