On Sunday evening, as the world looked forward to the 94thth At the Oscars celebration, Will Smith appeared to be the center of attention after he slapped colleague Chris Rock on live TV. The latter was on stage to read out the Best Documentary nominees when he used the bald head of Will’s wife, Jada-Pinkett Smith, as a reference and cracked a joke. The aftermath of the scenario passed to shock sports and NBA analyst Stephen A. Smith, among others.
Obviously being on stage and not kidding is certainly not a ‘Chris Rock’ thing, so he decided to use Jada Pinkett’ Smith’s bald head as a GIJoe reference. Perhaps even the actress didn’t admire the joke when her reaction was caught on camera. Seconds later, Will Smith took the stage and beat Chris Rock the life out. While many initially thought it was a joke, Will called out to the audience: “Keep my wife’s name out of your damn mouth.”
