Will Smith shocked everyone Sunday night at the 94th Academy Awards show after he walked on stage and struck Chris Rock right in the face after Rock cracked a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair loss.
During a segment at the Oscars, the 57-year-old comedian remarked about how no one was wearing a mask in the theater before he turned his attention to Denzel Washington and praised him for his part in the movie “The Tragedy of MacBeth.” The superstar comedian then told the audience that Will Smith’s wife was going to be in the next “G.I. Jane” movie.
“Jada, I love ya,” Rock told the audience. “G.I. Jane 2 movie, can’t wait to see it.”
Jada then rolled her eyes and appeared to be upset.
The “King Richard” star appeared to not appreciate what appeared to be a remark about his wife’s alopecia battle.
The superstar actor got up out of his seat, walked right up on stage, and struck the comedian in the face. It didn’t appear to be a planned move.
Warning: Strong language.
The audio on the broadcast faded out, and the next thing the audience can see is the two stars exchanging words. The clip above captured the exchange.
“Oh wow, wow. Will Smith just smacked the sh** outta me,” Rock announced to the crowd.
Will Smith mouthed the words, “Keep my wife’s name out your f***ing mouth!”
“Wow, dude,” Rock replied. “It was a G.I. Jane joke.”
Rock called it the “greatest night in the history of television, before he tried to get the show back on track.
“Okay, we are here to give away an award for the Best Documentary Feature,” the “Down to Earth” star said.
