Will Smith’s uncensored response to Chris Rock at the recent Oscars is fueling the media, and the issue is burning up. Apparently, the actor smacked the comedian and dropped the F-bomb as the latter made a joke. It was about Jada Pinkett Smith, the actor’s wife.
During the telecast of the Oscars, Chris Rock took to the stage to present the best documentary award. In an attempt at mockery, the comedian first cracks a joke about Javier Bardem and his wife Penelope Cruz who were both nominees for the Oscars. He implies that if Bardem’s wife loses, there is no way he can make a win thus putting him in a complex situation.
Furthermore, Chris Rock moves on to making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head. He refers to her hairstyle as being similar to that of Actress Demi Moore in the movie G.I. Jane – shaved.
However, Will Smith did not take this joke very lightly and went on stage to deliver a slap to Chris Rock. Trying to lighten the mood and keep the situation under control, the comedian then jokes about the slap too. It all appears to be fairly going as per the script. However, from among the audience, Will Smith shouts at the comedian to keep his wife’s name out of his mouth. Moreover, the uncensored video has very clear audio of Will Smith dropping the F-bomb on Chris Rock. And he says that twice!
