Oscars 2022: Will Smith slaps Chris Rock in shocking on-stage confrontation

1 min read

It was a slap heard around the world during a jovial Oscars ceremony on Sunday night in Hollywood — the night thrown into upheaval by a surprising celebrity outburst.

While presenting the award for Documentary Feature (won by Summer of Soul), Chris Rock made a joke about Will Smith‘s wife Jada Pinkett Smith that prompted an unbelievable exchange.

After Rock joked to Smith, that he was looking forward to a sequel to G.I. Jane starring Jada (who suffers from alopecia), Smith stood up from his seat near the stage, strode up to Rock and slapped him. After sitting back down, Smith shouted — twice — at Rock to “keep my wife’s name out of your f–king mouth.”

A short time later, Will Smith won the Oscar for Best Actor, and delivered an intense monologue that included an apology to his “fellow nominees.”

The Morning show breaks down the shocking moment and what happened next.
