At first, this all just seemed like a joke because Will Smith was captured on camera laughing at the joke but seconds after Jada rolled her eyes at the joke, Smith immediately went up on stage and slapped Chris Rock.

Smith returned to his seat and hurled harsh words at Chris;

“Keep my wife’s name out of your asshole!”

Will Smith himself won the Best Actor award at the 2022 Oscars for “King Richard”
