This Is How Hollywood Celebrities Reacted To Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock At The Oscars


Hollywood celebrities reacted in disbelief after actor Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock at the 94th Academy Awards which were held last night at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.

Chris Rock took the Oscars stage to present the best documentary award, then he made a joke about the actor’s wife, actor Jada Pinkett Smith.

“Javier Bardem and his wife are both nominated. Now, if she loses, he can’t win. He is praying that Will Smith wins, like, please, lord. Jada, I love you. ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it, all right?” he jested.

Initially, Will laughed a bit in the beginning, and Jada was seen rolling her eyes. Soon after, Will went up to the stage and slapped Chris on the face.

Jada has previously opened up about being diagnosed with alopecia, a hair loss condition.

As Smith sat down, he told Rock: “Keep my wife’s name out your f*cking mouth!”, to which the comedian responded, “Wow dude, it was a ‘G.I. Jane’ joke.” Smith then repeated his demand and Rock said, “That was the greatest night in the history of television.”

Smith went on to win Best Actor award for King Richard, and the tearful star apologised to fellow nominees and the Academy awards.

Hollywood celebrities were quite stupefied by the incident. During a commercial break moments later, Denzel Washington, Tyler Perry and Bradley Cooper were seen consoling the King Richard star.

Actor Leslie Odom Jr. said: “This business can sometimes feel like walking around with your skin ripped off, you know? It’s a very vulnerable thing. And so I think we saw two artists with their hearts open. It’s a vulnerable moment, sometimes it’s messy but it’s always beautiful when it’s the truth.”

Tiffany Haddish reacted: “I think Chris was messy. As a woman who had a husb, I wish my husb wld have stood up 4 me the way (Will) stood up for (Jada). That’s what every woman wants, right? She was hurt. And he protected his wife. And that’s what a man is supposed to do.”
