BREAKING: Will Smith Punches Chris Rock Onstage at Oscars
BREAKING NEWS: Hollywood star Will Smith jumped on stage during the Academy Awards and punched Chris Rock in the face after the comedian cracked a joke about Smith’s wife.
The “King Richard” star stormed onto the stage after Rock suggested that Pinkett Smith should star in a “G.I. Jane” sequel due to her bald head.
“Will Smith just smacked the s— out of me,” Rock said, in a slight state of disbelief.
“Keep my wife’s name out your f—— mouth,” Smith yelled, to which Rock tried to defend himself.
Many in the Oscars audience appeared stunned at the altercation. Diddy was the next presenter during the ceremony, where he appeared to introduce the 50th anniversary celebration to “The Godfather.” Diddy addressed the situation by saying, “Will and Chris, we’re going to solve that like family. Right now we’re moving on with love. Everybody make some nose.”Variety
Will Smith’s publicist Meredith O. Sullivan came by him at the commercial break to have a discussion.
