In an event believed to be an unscripted one,surprise of observers and followership members likewise, Will Smith paraded onstage and hit Chris Rock in the face after the funnyman made a joke about the actor’s woman while presenting the stylish talkie award at the Oscars.
The comedian cum presenter passed a funny comment that Smith’s wife, the actress Jada Pinkett Smith, was in “G.I. Jane 2,” putatively a reference to her short- cropped hair.
The star actress has said she has alopecia, a condition that leads to hair loss. Smith yelled and cursed at Rock after returning to his seat, demanding that Rock not speak about his woman.
During the heated exchange, the telecast went silent on numerous defenses, leaving confusion about what had happed and what had been said.
Rock, a presenter at the show, had been firing off jokes during amini-monologue when he got around to actors and their consorts.
The camera condemned to Smith, who appeared originally to be smiling. But the joke drew a lukewarm event, egging Rock to add:
On Sunday, after Rock spoke, her hubby was soon out of his seat. Smith walked down the runway toward the stage.
Uncensored broadcasts of the telecast outside the United States showed that after being struck, Rock, trying to keep the mood light, conceded that Smith had “ smacked” him, using an curse to describe how hard he’d been hit.
Back in his seat, Smith told Rock: “Keep my wife’s name out your fucking mouth!”
Rock responded, “Wow dude, it was a ‘G.I. Jane’ joke.”
Smith also repeated his demand.
