Will Smith's First-ever Oscar and Oscar's First-ever Violence

The Oscars 2022 ceremony took place like never before: Will Smith went straight on stage and smacked comedian Chris Rock while he was making a joke about Smith's wife Jada who has her head shaved.

Chris Rock was on stage acting as presenter for the Documentary category. Chris told jokes and everyone was having a good time until he referred to Smith's wife as G.I. Jane (the shaven female character in the 1997 film of the same name, played by Demi Moore). This alluded to the fact that Jada Pinkett Smith (who was sitting next to Will at the ceremony) also shaved her head because of hair loss. Footage shows Jada looked annoyed at the joke.

As soon as Chris finished his joke, Will Smith went straight to the stage and slapped Chris in the face. Everyone had thought it was a joke until Will Smith returned to his seat and yelled twice, "Keep my wife's name out of your f*cking mouth".

Then, also at this ceremony, Will Smith was honored in the category of Best Actor for his role as Richard Williams in the movie King Richard. The film follows the true story of Richard's life and the process of raising and training his two daughters, Venus and Serena, to become the world's top tennis players.
