Will Smith slaps Chris Rock, wins best actor at Oscars

Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars over a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith.

Will Smith went back to his seat and yelled an expletive at Rock to stop taking Jada’s name in his jokes.

Rock had said he was looking forward to seeing Jada in ‘G.I. Jane 2’, mocking her bald head.

Jada suffers from alopecia, an autoimmune condition that leads to rapid loss of hair on the scalp.

Smith, while accepting the best actor Oscar for 'King Richard' later, apologized for his actions.

Smith said he is a “crazy father", like Richard Williams who was a fierce defender of his family.

Smith was paid a whopping $40 million for his role where he plays the father of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams.

Smith gave cash bonuses to his co-stars to compensate for WB's release of the film simultaneously on HBO Max.
