CINEMA: Will Smith gives a slap to Chris Rock on stage to defend his wife during OSCARS ceremony.

Will Smith slapped Chris Rock in the face on stage at the Oscars after the ridicu­lous made a joke about the actor’s woman Jada Pin­kett Smith.
“Jada, can not await for GI Jane 2,“he said, in an appar­ent ref­er­ence to her shaved hair­style-which is a result of the hair loss con­di­tion alopecia.

Smith walked on stage and struck Rock before return­ing to his seat and cry­ing” Keep my wife’s name out of your ( exple­tive) mouth.“
He lat­ter­ly apol­o­gised on stage.

“I want to apol­o­gise to the Acad­e­my. I want to apol­o­gise to my all my fel­low nominees,“he said dur­ing a tear­ful accep­tance speech for best actor.

The star picked up the first Oscar of his career for play­ing the father of ten­nis leg­ends Venus and Ser­e­na Williams in King Richard.
” Art imi­tates life,“he said.“I look like the crazy father, just like they said about Richard Williams. But love will make you do crazy stuff.”

The Acad­e­my of Motion Pic­ture Arts and Sci­ences, which organ­is­es the Oscars, twit­tered that it“does not blink vio­lence of any form”.
Rock­’s joke relat­ed to 1997 film GI Jane, in which Demi Moore played the title role with a severe buzzcut.

The fun­ny­man looked stu­pe­fied in the imme­di­ate fate of the inci­dent, but told the followership“That was the top­most night in the his­to­ry of TV.“
The Los Ange­les Police Depart­ment after­ward told Vari­ety that Rock had” declined to file a police report” fol­low­ing the event.

After the inci­dent, Rock hand­ed over the best doc­u­men­tary prize, which was the rea­son he was on stage.

Accord­ing to The Hol­ly­wood Jour­nal­ist’s Scott Fein­berg, a tear­ful Smith want­ed to be” pulled away and assured“by Den­zel Wash­ing­ton and Tyler Per­ry.
The tri­ad could be seen talk­ing just in front of the stage dur­ing an advert break, with Wash­ing­ton and Per­ry putting their hands on his shoul­ders. A Star is Born actor Bradley Coop­er was also seen stand­ing with Smith and appear­ing to assure him.

Pre­sent­ing the com­ing sec­tion, Sean“Diddy“Combs said“Will and Chris, we are going to work out that like fam­i­ly. Right now we are mov­ing on with love.”

Oth­er guests at the par­ty respond­ed to the inci­dent, with film­mak­er David Fur­nish say­ing he tells his sons with Elton John” don’t hit any­body. under any circumstance”.

But actress and come­di­an Tiffany Had­dish defend­ed Smith, say­ing he’d been stand­ing up for his woman.

Jaden Smith twit­tered after his father hit Rock“And that is how we do it.”

Oth­er mem­bers of the film indus­try crit­i­cised Smith, with The Last Samu­rai pro­duc­er Mar­shall Her­skovitz call­ing on the Acad­e­my to take cor­rec­tion­al action against him and Star Wars actor Mark Hamill call­ing it“the ugli­est Oscar moment ever”.

Hol­ly­wood star Mia Far­row twittered“It was just a joke.”

Jour­nal­ists had been tak­ing part in the tra­di­tion­al con­fi­den­tial­ly press con­fer­ence, but atten­tion sud­den­ly turned to the over­head screens and what was going on at the solemnity.

At first, it had looked like some kind of set-up. Smith indeed appeared to laugh at first after Rock deliv­ered his line about his woman look­ing like GI Jane.

Jada looked both­ered, but at this point it was still assumed this was all part of some kind ofpre-planned routine.

incer­ti­tude began to creep in when Smith rose from his seat and hit Rock on the stage. Of course, these guys are vets of film and TV, and would know how to car­ry out a fake stage poke. Except, every­one was start­ing to sup­pose, it did not look that fake.

By the time Smith was sit­ting back in his seat and yelling to Rock to” keep my wife’s name out your ( exple­tive) mouth”, it was clear this was no sketch. A pro­fes­sion­al like Smith would know bet­ter than to drop the F- lemon on stage dur­ing a live Tele­vi­sion broadcast.

major like for­mer Oscars that were defined by their viral moments- alike as Ellen’s group self­ie or the best pic­ture win­ner mix-up in 2017-this will now con­tin­u­al­ly be the Oscars where Will Smith punched Chris Rock.
