Sunday 27th ,2022 during the Academy Awards, Will Smith, the eventual winner of the Best Actor, walked on stage and slapped comedian Chris Rock , who had previously acknowledged Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith , for her shaved head and likening her to Demi Moore's Appearance in the movie "G.I. Jane" who was seated next to her husband. After laughing at the joke, Will stood up and walked up to the stage and landed a hot stinging slap on Chris' face . Smith then returned to his seat and shouted twice "Keep my wife's name out your f***ing mouth!"
Later on after getting his price, Will Smith apologized to the Academy and his colleagues but no apology for Chris Rock. The Following day, he issued an apology to The Academy and to Chris Rock via Instagram and Facebook.
Though he apologized, Will Smith's son, Jaden Smith, an actor and singer, supported his father on Twitter with a twit saying " And That's How We Do It"
