Parades on the red carpet, award ceremonies, tearful speeches, a little fight between Will Smith and comedian Chris Rock… a lot happened during the 94th Academy Awards ! As you will have understood, Sunday March 27, 2022 was an eventful day full of surprises for everyone.
Why did Will Smith slap Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars?
Impossible not to mention the clash between Will Smith and Chris Rock which will surely remain in the annals. While he was going to present the Oscar for best documentary, Chris Rock allowed himself to make a joke about the shaved head Jada Pinkett Smith, the wife of Will Smith who suffers from alopecia. The latter then got up to join the comedian on stage … and give him a monumental slap. The Men in Black actor then returned to his seat as if nothing had happened, leaving his colleague completely taken aback. Will Smith apologized during his speech at the time of receiving the Oscar for best actor for his role in ” The Williams Method “.
