Chris Rock's joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's bald dome wasn't the only Oscar hair attack that The Game thought went too far.
In a now-deleted IG post, Game claimed that there was a racist conspiracy behind a quip Regina Hall made about LeBron James's hairline in Space Jam being so enhanced the movie deserved a Special Effects nomination.

Here's what Game said about that.
"It’s one thing to be a beautiful black woman as accomplished as @morereginahall is & not be able to put your foot down when pre-reading a 'joke' clearly written for her by someone else (I’m assuming a white writer)," said Game. "But another thing to try & clown a truly family oriented man of integrity, supreme character & class on a stage where we are still not wanted & truly only get awarded when they feel they should 'throw the monkey a banana' as my late grand mother would put it."
"This is the same way they set up Chris Rock with pre-written content that I’m sure they knew would outrage Jada & Will. They didn’t think Will would slap him for it & that’s where things get tricky…. Because it backed Will Smith into a corner where he acted on impulse & had to defend his wife & make a decision that they are trying to crucify him for. I’m not personally shooting at Regina Hall, or Wanda Sykes… I’m just saying, you see they didn’t let Amy Schumer read that line. Furthermore, it’s kool to joke about us with us because we as black folks understand each other in that manner. It is only when it’s pre-written & they’re conspiring before hand to once again use US against US for their own humor."
It's possible Game deleted his post because it was so ridiculous.
