My wife Michaela and I were watching The Oscars last night...I show that has a reputation for being too long and sometimes, a bit a dull side...was anything but when Chris Rock got up to present the Academy Award for Best Documentary. Rock started is usual standup, aka ROASTING of people in the audience, when he got to Jada Pinkett-Smith and made a joke about her doing G.I. Jane 2 because she has a shaved head. Will got up, walked on stage, and literally slapped Chris Rock in the face, walked back to his seat, and can be seen yelling "Keep my wife's name out of your [bleeping] mouth". Jada has been vocal about a condition called Alopecia.
Adding to the drama, Will later ended up winning the award for Best Actor for King Richard, and while he apologized The Academy, he did not address Chris Rock directly. The slap, the memes, the comments, have dominated the conversation since.
