Will Smith went on stage to hit Chris Rock during the Oscar Award ceremony, after Chris Rock joked about Jada Pinkett’s hair.
Chris Rock said, “Jada, I love you. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it” (he was joking that Jada was acting as G.I. Jane because of her bald hair).
Will Smith laughed initially, though Jada didn’t seem pleased with the joke. Then he suddenly got up, went on stage and hit Chris Rock.
Chris Rock tried to come back from the awkward incident by telling a joke, but Will Smith shouted, “Keep my wife’s name out you fu*king mouth”.
Smith later won an award and he used his acceptance speech to apologise to the Academy. However, he did not apologise to Chris Rock.
Jada Pinkett-Smith has a medical condition that makes her lose her hair (I don’t think that Chris Rock knew this when he made the joke).
