Will Smith Hits Chris Rock : During the 2022 Oscar telecast, Chris Rock and Will Smith had a spat. When Rock took the stage to present the Oscar for documentary feature, he joked about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head being in “G.I. Jane.” Smith then walked onto the stage and slapped Rock. “Keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth!” Smith yelled at Rock, despite the fact that it appeared to be a joke at first.
Many in the Oscars audience were taken aback by the brawl. Diddy was the next presenter at the ceremony, appearing to introduce “The Godfather’s” 50th anniversary celebration. “Will and Chris, we’re going to solve this like family,” Diddy said of the situation. We’re currently moving forward with love. “Everyone, make a racket.”
Meredith O. Sullivan, Smith’s publicist, stopped by during the commercial break to talk to him. During the intermission, Denzel Washington rose to speak with Smith privately. “At your highest moment, be careful, that’s when the devil comes for you,” Washington told Smith during his best actor speech.
Following the incident Will Smith Hits Chris Rock at The Oscars over a Joke about Jada Pinkett Smith, Sullivan continued to pay Smith visits during each commercial break. Will Packer, the Oscars producer, also paid Smith a visit before the best actor category was announced. Smith was nominated for his role in “King Richard” and went on to win the Oscar later that night.
During his speech, Smith said, “Richard Williams was a fierce defender of his family.” He later apologized for his actions to the Academy and his fellow nominees.
Last year, Pinkett Smith revealed that she had shaved her head due to alopecia. “Now at this point, all I can do is laugh,” the actor wrote on Instagram. You’re all aware that I’ve been battling alopecia. All of a sudden, one day…it just appeared like that. This will be a little more difficult for me to conceal now. So I figured I’d just share it so no one asks any questions… Mama’s going to have to take it all the way down to her scalp so no one thinks she’s had brain surgery. “I’m going to be friends with this alopecia for the rest of my life!”
In the end, Questlove won the documentary Oscar for “Summer of Soul.” “I’m not talking about Smith smacking Rock,” Questlove said in the Oscars press room when asked about Smith smacking Rock. The Harlem Cultural Festival is the subject of this discussion.”
