Will Smith Attacks Chris Rock During Oscars Over Jada Pinkett Smith Joke — Watch Uncensored Video
A joke Chris Rock told while presenting at Sunday’s Oscars didn’t go over well with Will Smith — and the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star made his feelings known during the telecast.
“Jada, I love ya. GI Jane 2 — can’t wait to see it,” Rock quipped while presenting Best Documentary Feature, directing his comments at Jada Pinkett Smith, who is bald and who has previously spoken publicly about her hair-loss condition, alopecia.
Though Will Smith appeared to laugh at the joke at first, Jada Pinkett Smith rolled her eyes and appeared displeased. Soon after, Smith walked up to the stage and took a swing at Rock. “Wow, Will Smith just smacked the s–t out of me,” Rock said. Then Smith, who had returned to his seat, yelled from the audience “Keep my wife’s name out your f–king mouth” and repeated it after Rock protested that the dig had just been a joke.
Audio of the exchange was muted on ABC, but international feeds revealed the entire, unbleeped interaction.
After Smith’s shouted comments, Rock replied, “I’m going to, OK? That was the greatest night in the history of television.” And after a few moments of awkward silence, the broadcast moved forward with the list of Documentary Feature nominees.
The Smiths were in attendance because Will is nominated for Best Actor for his role in King Richard.
When Rock hosted the Oscars in 2016, his opening monologue included a swipe at Pinkett Smith, saying that the then-Gotham star’s “OscarsSoWhite” boycott “is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties: I wasn’t invited.”
