Did this really just happen at the Oscars!? Will Smith slapped the s##t out of Chris Rock then told him to keep his wife’s name out of his mouth.
20 years after he was first nominated for best actor in “Ali,” another sports biopic sealed the deal for Will Smith at the Academy Awards. Earlier in the night, Smith walked on stage and slapped Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
A tense moment at the #OscarsOn2: After comedian Chris Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith she didn’t seem to like, Will Smith hopped on stage and slapped Rock.
Chris Rock:”Will Smith just smacked the sh*t out of me”
Will Smith:”Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king mouth”
The backstory: Rock joked about Smith’s wife, Jada, – who’s spoken about her hair loss condition – being in “G.I. Jane” b/c of her bald head. Smith laughed, then got to and walked onto the stage toward Rock. He slapped him the face and walked off.
