What did Will Smith just do to Chris Rock at the Oscars?
Pinkett Smith – who announced last year that she shaved her head after struggling with alopecia – could be seen in the audience together with her husband, rolling her eyes at the joke.
Rock’s comment prompted Smith to stand up and walk on stage, causing the comedian to joke: “Uh oh…”. Smith then proceeded to hit Rock and then walk off stage back to his seat.
“Will Smith just smacked the s*** out of me,” said Rock, looking visibly shocked at the moment.
Smith is then heard yelling: “Keep my wife’s name out your f***ing mouth,” to which Rock replied: “Wow… dude. It was a GI Jane joke.”
“Keep my wife’s name out your f***ing mouth,” Smith yells again. “I’m going to…” replied Rock, who appeared flustered at the interaction.
“That was the greatest night in the history of television,” said Rock, before going on to present the award for Best Documentary.
Many viewers reported that the sound from the televised broadcast cut out during Smith’s outburst.
Best actor nominee Will Smith appeared to smack presenter Chris Rock in the face with an open hand and shouted a vulgarity at the comedian for making a joke about his wife’s appearance at the Oscars ceremony. Rock made a joke about the hairstyle of Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith that referenced the movie GI Jane in which actress Demi Moore shaved her head. Pinkett Smith suffers from the hair loss condition, alopecia. Smith, who is nominated for best actor for ‘King Richard,’ walked on stage and slapped Rock in what at first appeared to be a scripted joke. But the mood turned somber moments later when Smith, back in his seat, shouted back, ‘Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth’

This kind of behavior is why I don’t watch such nonsense programs. Staged or not, doesn’t matter… breaking news to me. Is this really the best we’ve got? love
Your wife actively talks about having an affair with your child’s alcoholic friend. She actively reminisces about sleeping with Tupac, and disrespects you in the media about how you perform in bed. And then you get mad when people make a joke… Will Smith is a simp. The media may love this, but the majority of men have lost respect for him. Big respect to Chris Rock for not breaking down live on stage. Never underestimate the poise and professionalism of a veteran Comedian. No matter how much Smith hated it, he should not have done that
