Will Smith and Chris Rock are seen onstage during the 94th Annual Academy Awards at Dolby Theatre on March 27, 2022 in Hollywood, California.

It was the slap heard around the world. Yes, Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at last night’s Oscars after Chris joked about Jada Pinkett Smith’s hair. As you may or may not know, Jada has been public with her alopecia diagnosis for a good while, documenting her struggle with hair loss so the GI Jane joke didn’t sit too well with Will. Everyone including all the celebrities in the audience were stunned, many thinking the whole thing was staged.  Regardless the LAPD did get involved and asked Chris if he wanted to press charges. He said no.

There were rumors Will Smith was going to seek out Chris and apologize at the Vanity Fair after party. As far as we know now, that didn’t happen. But what did happen, was Will on video living his best life dancing and rapping to one of HIS songs.
