The recent edition of the Oscars 2022 was held on March 27. Everyone was very excited due to the immense expectation for the main categories. However, an unfortunate taunt from Chris Rock to Jada Pinkett-Smith provoked Will Smith’s unexpected response: he came on stage and slapped her hard.

After that, the artist returned to his seat and shouted at Rock not to mention his wife again. The moment took everyone by surprise, because what followed later showed that it was not something premeditated. Clearly, the audience was uncomfortable and some of the celebrities’ reactions have gone viral.
The one who couldn’t hide her reaction was Lupita Nyong’o, especially since she was sitting very close to the irate Smith. Even Serena Williams herself shared her face of total surprise from her. However, Nicole Kidman’s face was the one that went viral, although Elle magazine mentions that the image would have been taken before the event.

Next, we leave you more impressions of recognized figures.

I want to apologize to all of my fellow nominees,” he assured.
Why did Will Smith hit Chris Rock?
The altercation occurred when Chris Rock made an offensive comment about Jada Pinkett Smith and how he “hoped to see her in GI Jane 2”, making fun of her baldness.
