"Squad" member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., rushed to support Will Smith when he slapped Chris Rock after Rock made a joke about Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith at the Oscars.

Yet Pressley appears to have deleted the tweet mere minutes later.

After Rock made a joke about a sequel to "G.I. Jane," apparently referring to Pinkett Smith's bald head, Smith reportedly rushed on stage, slapped Rock in the face, and then returned to his seat.

Pinkett Smith has been open about her struggle with hair loss.

Pressley appeared to identify with Pinkett Smith in her tweet.

She used the word Alopecia, the medical term for bald.

"#Alopecia nation stand up!" the congresswoman tweeted.

"Thank you #WillSmith Shout out to all the husbands who defend their wives living with alopecia in the face of daily ignorance & insults."

Will Smith slapped Chris Rock in the face on stage at the Oscars after the comic made a joke about the actor's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

"Jada, can't wait for GI Jane 2," he said, in an apparent reference to her shaved hairdo - which is a result of the hair loss condition alopecia.

Smith walked on stage and struck Rock before returning to his seat and shouting: "Keep my wife's name out of your [expletive] mouth."

As CNN reported:

Will Smith won his first Academy Award on Sunday night and offered his apologies to the Academy and others for an earlier incident in which the actor appeared to strike presenter Chris Rock.

He tearfully accepted the award for his role as Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena Williams, in the film "King Richard."

Smith said Williams "was a fierce defender of his family."

Smith said:

"I know to do what we do, you gotta be able to take abuse and have people talk people about you.

"In this business, you gotta have people disrespecting you."

"And you gotta smile and pretend that's ok."
