Oscar night is usually remembered for all the winners and the memorable speeches. However, at today’s ceremony we witnessed a rather awkward event, and one that is unknown if it was a planned prank or not. unexpectedly, Will Smithwho is nominated for Best Actor for king richard, hit Chris Rock, one of the presenters at the ceremony.
Before presenting the award for Best Documentary, Chris Rock made a joke about alopecia, a disease that causes hair loss, suffered by Jada Pinkett Smith, wife of Will Smith. This was not amusing for the main actor of king richard, so he stood up furious, and hit him. Following that, Smith made a series of aggressive comments, demanding that Rock stop making jokes about his partner.
