1 – Oscars gone wild: Will Smith slaps Chris Rock over joke about his wife
People reports: Chris Rock and Will Smith had a tense moment at the Oscars — one that caught the comedian off guard, leaving him momentarily speechless.
While presenting, Rock, 57, made a joke about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair, saying he looks forward to seeing her in “G.I. Jane 2,” referencing when Demi Moore shaved her head for the 1997 film. Smith walked on stage and appeared to strike Rock, who then said in disbelief, “Will Smith just smacked the s— out of me.”
After going back to his seat, Smith, who is nominated for Best Actor this year, shouted twice to Rock, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f—–g mouth.” Rock then said, “Wow, dude. It was a G.I. Jane joke.”
