(Update March 28, 2022):

Will Smith has apologized on Instagram for slapping Chris Rock after he made a joke about Smith’s wife at the Oscars Sunday night.

Will wrote “Violence in all forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada’s medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”

Original Story (3/28/22):

LOS ANGELES — Will Smith marched on stage and smacked presenter Chris Rock during Sunday night’s Oscars after Rock made a joke about the appearance of Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.

Smith was awarded best actor for his role in “King Richard” moments later and apologized to the academy during his speech.

The crowd at the Dolby Theatre hushed as Smith twice shouted at Rock to “keep my wife’s name out of your (expletive) mouth.”

Rock made a joke about Pinkett Smith’s shaved head.

Pinkett Smith revealed in 2018 that she was diagnosed with alopecia.

She has often discussed the challenges of hair loss on Instagram and other social media platforms.
