Will Smith was the star of the Oscars, that’s for sure! Check out the latest news about the Oscars.
The Shade Room notes: ‘If there’s one thing #WillSmith doesn’t play about, it’s his wife and he made that clear tonight at the #Oscars. #ChrisRock made a joke about #JadaPinkettSmith starring in a remake of the ‘G.I. Jane’ due to her bald haircut, and Will clearly was not feeling it. Not only did he get physical with Chris, he let him know he better keep his wife’s name out of his mouth!’
Someone said: ‘Smacked some sense into his ass what he throught what did the five fingers say to the face????’
A fan said: ‘The joke was extremely inappropriate because she is dealing with alopecia, and although I understand his defense of his wife, the reaction could’ve been handled a different way. Will is up for the biggest award of the night that he deserves, and if he wins, the discussion will not be the historic deserving win for him. It will be that he punched Chris Rock . Sad all around. Air left the room. National live television stalled to accommodate curse words flying. I wish it wouldn’t have happened this way.’
Someone said: ‘chris took that punch like a G he was more shocked than anything hands still behind his back and all.’
‘During his Best Actor acceptance speech, #WillSmith apologized to the Academy and all his fellow nominees after he physically assaulted #ChrisRock live on stage. (SWIPE for the joke that happened before things got physical),’ TSR said.
Someone said: ‘Denzel: “Will, be careful. At your highest moment, that’s when the devil comes for you!”’
A fan said: ‘He’s human…that’s his wife. He let his emotions get the best of him and definitely chose the wrong time to check Chris. Will is a talented and brilliant actor and I truly hope this moment doesn’t overshadow the legacy he has built. Disheartening and embarrassing situation for all involved.’
