The Oscars took a surprising turn this evening. Will Smith walked on stage to smack Chris Rock, shocking many viewers. What made Smith lose his temper and walk on stage?
What happened to Chris Rock and Will Smith?
Vanity Fair What went?The world is talking about it down on the stage. Chris Rock was there to present the award for best documentary. Rock started his time on stage with a few jokes. One joke was clearly not the best. He made a joke about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. He called her “Jada Pinkett Smith”. G.I. Jane. Smith didn’t like it.
Smith then walked up from his seat in front and started to slap Rock. Chris said: “oh wow Will Smith just smacked the sh*t out of me.”Smith smiled and walked back to the chair, where he shouted at Rock. Smith responded, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth.”
Rock, then. “Wow Dude it was a G.I. Jane joke.”Smith repeated the same words, “Keep my wife’s name out of your f*cking mouth.”
Rock continued to smile as he said okay I’m going to.
The telecast was stopped immediately.
Joke gone wrong, very sensitive
Pinkett-Smith revealed last year that she was going to shave her head because of alopecia. Alopecia areata occurs when the immune system attacks hair hair follicles, causing hair loss.
So, many are commenting that Rock’s joke was very insensitive to Pinkett-Smith’s condition.
Diddy was next on stage, and he introduced the 50th anniversary celebration. The Godfather. Diddy responded to the awkward altercation with, “Will and Chris, we’re going to solve that like family. Right now we’re moving on with love. Everybody make some noise.”

It was real?
Some online skeptics believe that the fight was staged. Some people believe that he would never punch someone on the stage.
Others believe he was just defending his wife, and they have good reasons to believe so.
