Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars 2022 and hit the headlines immediately. Apparently, Chris made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hairstyle “Jada, I love ya. GI Jane 2 — can’t wait to see it,” while presenting an award. For the unversed, Pinkett Smith is bald and has opened up about her hair-loss condition, alopecia.

After Chris Rock delivered the joke at the Oscars 2022, Will Smith was seen laughing at first, but Jada Pinkett Smith rolled her eyes. Just a few moments later, Will walked up to the stage and slapped the Grown-Ups actor. Though at first, many thought it was scripted. However, when the actor returned to his seat and shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out of your fu*king mouth,” things went sombre.

Everyone present at the award show was shocked as the air was filled with whispers and gasps. However, the netizens had a gala time reacting to the incident through memes.

While Smith collected his first-ever Academy Awards trophy, the actor got emotional and apologised for shocking everyone after slapping Rock.

“I want to apologize to the Academy, I want to apologize to all my fellow nominees,” a teary-eyed Smith said as per Times Of India.

Though, Will Smith didn’t mention Chris Rock’s name in it. While Jada Pinkett Smith’s husband took home the Best Lead Actor’s trophy, Jessica Chastain won the Best Lead Actress, Jane Campion won the Best Director, and the Best Picture went to CODA.
