Whew! Will Smith gave Chris Rock a huge slap at the live event of the 2022 Academy Awards last night.
Chris made a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head, which irritated her husband Will Smith, as previously reported. “Jada, I love you, ‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see that,” Rock quipped as he presented the award for best documentary. Rock then chuckled and said, “Oh uh,” as Smith approached him on stage and slapped him across the face. Jada has been candid about her alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss.
Will eventually apologized, and a representative for Chris Rock stated he has opted not to press charges. So, how do the comedians feel about each other now days? After the chaotic incident, Diddy aka Brother Love spoke exclusively with @pagesix and stated they had sorted their beef: “That isn’t an issue. That’s it for now. “I can confirm it,” Diddy, 52, said to the magazine, without going into greater detail about how Smith, 53, and Rock, 57, reconciled. He went on to say, “It’s all love.” “They’re brothers,” says the narrator.
Following the chaotic awards show, Smith attended the Vanity Fair party with his family, seemingly unconcerned by the turmoil that had occurred just hours before. The former “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star was seen dancing and rapping to his song “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It” on the red carpet.
