Will Smith shocked everyone present at the Oscars on Sunday night when he approached the stage and slapped presenter Chris Rock in the face after the comedian made a joke about his wife, actor Jada Pinkett Smith.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that Rock was on the Oscars stage presenting the category for best documentary when the bizarre incident happened.
Rock began by making a few jokes about some of the audience present at the event, including Pinkett Smith, referring to her as “G.I. Jane” due to her closely cropped hair.
Recall that Pinkett Smith had spoken in the past about her battle with alopecia.
Smith, who apparently wasn’t okay with the joke, walked to the stage and slapped Rock across the face.
He then returned to his seat and shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth.”
