It was NO joke Will Smith really smacked Chris Rock on stage at the Oscars – Kino News –


Chris Rock himself moderated the Oscars in 2005 – and even then alienated some with his sharp-tongued comments. This year, he again used his brief appearance to award the Academy Award for Best Documentary for some provocative punch lines — one of them at the expense of actress Jada Pinkett Smith , who shaved her hair last year due to an illness. Chris Rock said on stage that he was looking forward to her appearance in GI Jane 2 ( The Jane Files originally starred Demi Moore with her hair cropped close).

But then suddenly Will Smith came on stage and slapped Chris Rock. At first it seemed like a rehearsed joke by two comedians — even the sound of the hit seemed rehearsed at first. But apparently the blow was real. Because after King Richard Oscar nominee Will Smith got back in his seat, he yelled twice more at Chris Rock to keep his wife’s name out of his «fucking» mouth. That would never have gone through with a rehearsed gag, since the word «fucking» is not allowed to be used on US television.

In Australia, unlike in the USA, the excerpt was apparently not censored:

During the next commercial break, his press secretary stepped in to see Will Smith, also suggesting that there seemed to be some clarification needed after the situation… Fellow actor Denzel Washington also scolded Smith during a commercial break.

Incidentally, Chris Rock himself took it surprisingly calmly after a brief shock – and spoke of “a big TV night”. The rapper Sean Combs aka Puff Daddy, who appeared on stage a short time later and was supposed to announce the 50th anniversary of » The Godfather «, also came back to the incident — and called on Chris Rock and Will Smith to do the To sort things out with him like «a family».

Then, about half an hour after the incident, Will Smith actually won the Oscar for Best Actor — and without directly mentioning Chris Rock or the punch, his tearful speech about protecting one’s family and taking insults sounded like a direct reaction on what happened before.

He also apologized to his co-nominees and the Oscars Academy — comparing himself to his portrayal of Richard Williams, who has also been dubbed a «crazy dad» for protecting his talented daughters Venus & Serena Williams.
