The 2022 Academy Awards are underway but there is one incident we will all be talking about involving Chris Rock and Will Smith.
Chris Rock made a joke about Jada’s hair, saying he looked forward to GI Jane 2. Jada has been open about her struggles with alopecia, and Will Smith took offense to the comment. While the audio cut off on the American broadcast of the Oscars, it played out on international feeds.
As shown in the clip, Will Smith seems to be screaming at Rock to “keep his wife’s name out of his f**king mouth.”
It appears the interaction with Smith and Rock was unscripted, which means that Rock needs to host every award show moving forward. He took a hit from Will Smith and just rolled with the “punches” — so to say. Let’s just go ahead and award Best Documentary…
Not only that, Smith took home the Oscar for Best Actor in a Lead Role. The plot doth thicken. I can’t wait to see where this goes.
