Sunday’s 94th Academy Awards kept the spirit buoyant until Will Smith was very offended by a joke from presenter Chris Rock about the best actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
After Rock joked with Smith that he was looking forward to a sequel to G.I. JaneSmith got up from his seat near the stage, walked over to Rock and slapped him.
After sitting down, Smith yelled at Rock to “keep my wife’s name out of your (expletive) mouth.”
The moment shocked audiences at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles and viewers at home.
Before that, the show was going pretty well.
