However, on Sunday, March 27th, this year's Oscars went out with a bang, literally! Actor Will Smith smacked Chris Rock on stage during the 2022 Oscars after the comedian made a joke about Will Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.  

The 94th Academy Awards Oscars are supposed to be a celebration bestowing recognition and prestige to the most talented actors whose talents were showcased on the big screen. Honorees are acknowledged for their hard work and dedication to the art of film.

However, on Sunday, March 27th, this year’s Oscars went out with a bang, literally! Actor Will Smith smacked Chris Rock on stage during the 2022 Oscars after the comedian made a joke about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.  

The incident occurred while Rock was on stage engaging with the audience and presenting the best documentary award. He turned his focus to Jada Pinkett Smith who happened to be in the crowd and stated, “Jada, I love ya. G.I. Jane 2, can’t wait to see it,” referring to her bald head.

For those of you who don’t know, Jada Pinkett Smith was diagnosed with alopecia in 2018. She has been public about her struggles and talked about how hard it has been on her not being able to grow hair.

She was offended by Rock’s tasteless humor and rolled her eyes after his joke. Will Smith then stormed the stage in anger, walking up to Rock and slapping him.

Will then turned walked back to his seat where he repeatedly yelled “Keep my wife’s name out of your fucking mouth” Astonished and shook Chris Rock responded by lightening the mood with a joke. stating it was the greatest night in the history of television.

Talk about a bad joke gone wrong. Perhaps he will think twice before insulting a black man’s wife. Needless to say, the show went on without any more hiccups. I guess he’d learned a painful yet valuable lesson.
