The world of professional football is full of stories of resilience, hard work and dedication. However, it is also a world where athletes face physical and emotional challenges that often go unnoticed. NFL veteran Josh Dobbs is one who faces such challenges. He suffers from alopecia areata, a condition that affects millions of people worldwide. The same condition that Jada Pinkett Smith has.

Dobbs has played as a QB for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans. He has been diagnosed with Alopecia areata since he was just a 10-year-old. The condition, which causes patchy hair loss, can be emotionally distressing for those who suffer from it. In Dobb’s case, he’s been fighting it for years. While Dobbs’ story may not have the same level of drama as the “slapgate” incident, it does raise awareness of Alopecia areata.

What makes Dobbs’ story even more significant is that he is not the only public figure to suffer from Alopecia areata. In 2018, actress Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that she also has the condition. Unfortunately, Pinkett Smith’s reveal was marred by an incident that occurred at the Oscars. The ever-infamous Oscar incident is still fresh for many, especially after the release of comedian Chris Rock’s latest stand-up special.

During the ceremony last year, host Chris Rock joked about Pinkett Smith’s appearance. Her appearance was influenced by her medical condition at the time, which Rock was apparently unaware of. The joke was met with laughter from the audience, but Pinkett Smith was visibly upset. And then, bang. The moment that everyone remembers. Will Smith climbs on stage and punches Chris Rock in front of national television, live at the Oscars.

Although it’s been almost a year since the infamous bang, Chris Rock certainly hasn’t forgotten it. And it doesn’t have internet either. Noted NFL Insider Dov Kleiman tweeted about Josh Dobb’s condition a few months back. But the cherry on top was Kleiman’s response to a tweet.

Rock’s latest special on Netflix certainly did not disappoint fans. He delved into the depths of last year’s controversy, constantly flaming both Jada and Will Smith. Some people may believe in forgiveness, but as it stands, Rock has absolutely no interest in letting the controversy die down anytime soon.
