WATCH: Chris Rock Slapped by Will Smith at Oscars
March 28, 2022 6:49AM CDT
The 94th Academy Awards happened on Sunday night, March 27th. Chris Rock will be remembered for a joke about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett. While Chris Rock was still talking, Will walked up to the stage and pretended to hit him. At first it seemed scripted, until he sat back down and the show was muted while he seemed to cuss at Chris Rock from his seat. He then apologized to the Academy and his fellow nominees during the acceptance speech for Best Actor. Do you think this was staged? Do you think Will Smith or Chris Rock was in the wrong?
